Dana has been coaching endurance runners for over a decade at UltraU. When she isn’t making athlete plans, she is doing sports that require snacks and planning questionable adventures.

Coaching Philosophy

Dana’s been influenced by the methods of the Hansons, Orton, Maffetone, Friel, and some crazy awesome science types.

Dana believes in experimental baking, geeking out on data, overdosing on podcasts, core work, and races that last a real long time.

Dana has experienced the high of insanely awesome PR days, the low of ultramarathon disappointments and the extreme low of foot injuries lasting way too long. Dana knows runners, because she is a runner, just like you.

Based in Bend, OR, serving runners everywhere.
