Whether she is running through a foot of snow, or running through intense humidity, this New Yorker is on the run!
Danielle runs with Team RWB, an organization who’s mission is to enrich veterans lives through physical activity and community activism.
Let’s see how Danielle answered our run questions:
What is your favorite post run treat?
I usually enjoy a banana with peanut butter.
What is your first run memory?
Funny question! The first 5k I raced in was called the Chilly Challenge. My coworker at the gym suggested we race in it. I had never raced before and was excited for the new experience. I trained for a few weeks prior to get ready for it. The day of the race came and he told me he wasn’t going to make it. There was snow falling, a foot of snow and hundreds of runners. To say the least, I was nervous. My friend encouraged me to still race. I did and I finished. It was one of the best feelings.
What is the hardest run you’ve ever done?
What is the BEST run experience you can remember?
What is your biggest struggle with running to date?
I have three: dealing with work stress, getting enough sleep and not throwing my back out again. It’s hard to find the time to decompress from work and go for a run. I joined The Run Experience because I really needed to learn more about proper form and cross-training. Even after 4 years of running, there’s still so much to learn!
What drew you to The Run Experience?
My marathons have always been my greatest accomplishments, but running with Team RWB is where I encountered my proudest running moments. I run with people currently in the military and veterans. When we run together, we push each other to be better. They inspire me everyday to work harder. So I have to say, I am most proudest when I am running with my team.
Thanks for sharing Danielle! Cheers to many more miles of running strong!
Are you also interested in running injury free? The 30 Day Challenge provides tools to running healthy, running faster, and running as far as you want for as many years as you want. It includes a LOT of work (we’re not gonna lie), but athletes who follow our simple video progressions, mobility assessments, strength exercises, and run workouts see pretty crazy results.
But fair warning: we want MOTIVATED runners only!
