2X U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifier, Second City Track Club Athlete
Dan lives and trains in the heart of Chicago with the Second City Track Club. A native of Woodstock, IL, he was a high school football player-turned-cross-country walk-on at the University of Illinois. Dan’s post-collegiate running took him to Eugene, Oregon for several years before returning back to his home city of Chicago in 2018. Dan ran a huge marathon personal best of 2:14:53 at the 2019 Chicago Marathon to qualify him for his second U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials.
I appreciate how versatile the products of UCAN are in meeting my fueling and nutritional needs as a runner. I begin every morning with the UCAN Hydrate mix, I reach for a UCAN Energy Bar for dependable, sustained energy delivery prior to my longer sessions, and often fuel my secondary runs with UCAN Energy Powders. The two greatest benefits of UCAN are the sustained energy delivery and the ease on the GI system – both vital components to enjoyable and successful training.
