Daren has a lot going on these days. From race directing to racing himself, he still considers balancing athletic pursuit with family a huge priority.

 

“I always thought that harder meant better.”

Injuries are going to happen after a lifetime of activity. Daren talks about how to better take care of yourself to insure you can do this moving thing for a very long time.

 

“It was one of the most emotional things I ever did.”

 
He talks about Fuego Y Agua and his friend he raced with and how it was a moving experience. He also talks about the blind athlete that he helped finish a brutal race and the effect it had on those around him!
