David Krail is Dai’s Featured Athlete of June!

In the last week of June Dai Endurance featured David Krail as our “Athlete of the Week.” We got some insight into what makes Dave tick and here are his answers.

  1. What do you do in real life? I am a Shift Lead at a battery

manufacturing facility.

  1. What are your weaknesses? PEANUT BUTTER. Anything

peanut butter.

  1. Why are you training? Because I finally can. I’ve had Asthma

my whole life and couldn’t exercise until 12 years ago. Once I

started running, I started eating better and feeling better, and

then I started racing. Then I was diagnosed with Lupus after

doing CIM in 2011. I found a great doctor, who got my Lupus

under control really quickly, and again leading a healthy and

active lifestyle helped me tremendously. I have trained for

many half and full marathons and never felt as prepared for a

race as I was for Big Sur Marathon for which I was training

with Julie.

  1. Do you partake in any Dai Endurance

Classes/Training/Fitting? I had a TT bike fit with Julie Young

and a marathon training program for Big Sur Marathon 2017.

Julie is now doing a training program for me for Ironman

Arizona in November.

5. Favorite piece of technology for training? My Garmin watch for

laps in the pool, HR and Pace.

  1. If you could spend 10 days anywhere, where would it be? A

trip that we will be doing next year Ireland and Scotland.

  1. Do you have a pre-ride/run route? Food you enjoy before? I

like to eat some oatmeal with raisins, an egg and some fruit.

  1. What is your favorite food to eat post training? I love chocolate

milk, protein bar and an Uncrustable. Sometimes just

anything around that’s good.

  1. Do you enjoy coffee/espresso or tea? What’s your preferred

brand? I love coffee, espresso and not so much tea.

10.Why do you train with Dai Endurance? After doing Big Sur

Marathon last year and feeling prepared enough to enjoy the

beautiful coastline without dying, I wanted to duplicate that feeling

in my first Ironman. I have trained for a couple Ironman’s on my

own and wound up getting injured and feel that Julie’s approach to

my training will prevent that.
