Dani Moreno is a professional trail runner sponsored by shoe company Hoka One One, as well as a female run apparel brand named rabbit. She was a member of the USA Long Distance Mountain team last year and will be trying to earn a spot on the USA Short Distance Mountain Team this year.

Questions we ask Dani include:

How did you get your start in distance running?

You mention that it was “everything outside those PR’s” that made your time in college memorable. Can you elaborate further on that?

What was the transition like to post-collegiate running?

What drew you to trail running? How was that transition?

You wrote a powerful blog post about looking like a “true runner.” Can you elaborate further on your intention behind writing this post? In your eyes, what does it mean to be a true runner?

What is currently making you thrive in life? What does “a day in the life of Dani” look like?

Sounds like The GoPro Mountain Games will be fun!! What is in store for you at that race? What can runners expect?

What does being a Strong Runner Chick mean to you?
