We show smart runners how to perform 1% better daily in their training, racing, careers, and lives.

The truth is, most running info is repetitive. So to make your life easy, we've spent the last 52+ years reading, watching, studying, talking to experts and doing as much as I could so you don’t have to make the same mistakes as us and be as dope as you can be.

Daren is also a ten hour Ironman finishing triathlete and sub-3-hour marathon runner.

Hit us up if you have any feedback, want to collaborate or just wanna tell me about your training. On Instagram @dlakecreates or
