#057 Multi-Marathoner Dana Krashin

To celebrate the New York City Marathon on Sunday Nov. 6, we’re joined by multi-marathoner Dana Krashin! Her story takes her from watching the Boston Marathon with her family every year at mile 8.4 to running her first marathon in Boston in 2013, a marathon that we know was unlike any other. Dana’s positivity and love of running will almost convince you that running 26.2 miles sounds fun! Plus, we talk about what gear has stood the test of 9 marathons in “Dana’s Gear Corner”.
