In the middle of a one-mile time trial,

Danny once asked his coach “Can I stop now and run the rest later?” That was back in fifth grade but it had a lasting impact. His coach scoffed – and Danny’s competitive fire was lit. A standout runner and athlete throughout high school, Danny has always maintained a love for the sport. But life took its many detours, including a long hiatus from running, before he rediscovered his passion. Danny has competitively raced distances ranging from one mile to 50 miles. His passion for running has grown into helping others achieve their own running goals, with a focus on strength training for performance and resilience.
