Daniel Seo is a running coach at GoGo Running. As a Guest Advocate at Big Peach Running Company Coach Daniel has had the privilege of working with all levels of runners and walkers on a daily basis.

In 2003, he began to run because he wanted to quit smoking and lose some weight. Weighing in at 200 pounds (at 5’6”) and smoking a pack a day Daniel knew that something had to change. Growing up he thought he was not athletic nor did he play sports. However, one day while at a friend’s apartment gym Daniel got on a treadmill and his life has never be the same! First it was only one mile per day, five days a week. By the 4th week, he had had quit smoking and gradually, as time moved on, he lost 60 pounds.

The next step for him was signing up for some races. Starting with a 5k, working and then working his way up to a 10K and then a half marathon. The biggest step for Daniel however was yet to come. Daniel set a goal to run his first full marathon, on the hardest course he could find, The Atlanta Marathon. He then planned to use this race to qualify to run the Boston Marathon. It was at this time that Daniel decided to hire a running coach and a nutritionist of his own.

In 2006, after training his butt off, he ran his first marathon with a time of 3:06:27 which qualified him for the Boston Marathon! Since then, he has run 13 other marathons, with 11 of those being Boston Qualifiers. Needless to say, in Coach Daniel’s words He has “fallen head over heels for running.”

Daniel never stop believing and dreaming.

Daniel:

“I still have a vision to one day run the Olympic Marathon and run into the Olympic Stadium. I will never stop believing and pushing myself and as a USA Track & Field Level 1 Certified Coach, I bring this same type of belief and determination when coaching my clients as well.

The pillars of my training and coaching can be summed up into two beliefs: Consistency and Smart Training. This way of training has allowed me to train for ten years injury free and with consistent improvement.

Whatever your training goals may be, whether it be a marathon, to lose weight, run your first 5K, or just feel better and reduce stress, I would love to help you achieve your goals and beyond.”
