Show Notes

Our guest on this episode of Sports Backers' On the Move podcast is Danny Docherty, an elite runner, a running coach, and just an all around running enthusiast. Danny shared more insight on his running journey, what he hopes to accomplish as an athlete and a coach, the importance of building running communities, and the Twin Cities rivalry between Minneapolis and his hometown of Saint Paul: Hint: for runners, it’s all about which city plows their streets better in the winter. Speaking of rivalries, we also spent some time on the Great American 5000 and his team’s friendly battles with Keira and Anthony D’Amato.
