Ep. 2 - Dana Giordano
Dana Giordano is a professional runner for the B.A.A. and Adidas. She's a 4:08 1500m and 15:18 5K runner who ran track and cross-country at Dartmouth College and hopes to compete at the 2021 Olympic Track & Field Trials. In April, Dana added another line to her impressive resume: host of the More Than Running podcast.
