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.
- What do you do in real life? I am a Shift Lead at a battery
- What are your weaknesses? PEANUT BUTTER. Anything
- 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
- 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.
- If you could spend 10 days anywhere, where would it be? A
trip that we will be doing next year Ireland and Scotland.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
