Not being an athlete growing up, Danica entered the running and triathlon scene in 2010 and from her first try-a-tri she caught the spirit of competition and hasn’t looked back. While working full time, Danica has competed in 2 full Ironman races, 7 half Ironman races, 10 full marathons, 16 half marathons and several shorter distance triathlon and running races. In 2018 Danica needed an end of season goal and selected to try longer distance winning the overall female in her first 50km trail race. Outdoor training is where Danica finds peace from her busy life.
Danica is a 3 time Ironman 70.3 World Championships qualifier, and since 2014 she has qualified for the Boston Marathon.
This year’s goals include running the Tokyo Marathon as a semi-elite to complete 5 of 6 Abbott World Major Marathons, a strong build for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, an Ironman Louisville, and several new experiences in between.
Endurance nutrition continues to pose a challenge for Danica. Finding natural, quality products which are easy to digest limiting GI issues is not an easy task. F2C Nutrition met all of her requirements and makes her feel good about what she is putting into her body. The addition of Pharma Greens has been instrumental in Danica’s overall health, daily energy and recovery and she doesn’t start a day without it. The vanilla Pharma Pure is the perfect addition for post workout smoothies, overnight oats and all forms of baking for that extra protein boost.
