Super confidential, high priority, classified project REVEALED {Coach Dano &}

I am so excited to finally be able to share a top secret project that I was able to work on this summer.

On one of my favorite days of the year {my birthday}, I had the privilege to do a photo and filming session with my Team In Training mentor turned friend, Dan Tyler {aka Coach Dano}. Dano also shares a love for getting creative with his video producing skills and is truly doing amazing things for the entire Team In Training organization. Seriously…read all about him.

Triathlete, runner

Writer, musician

Man of action.

He’s achieved TNT’s highest rank, the “triple crown”, for fundraising and completing a marathon, century bike ride, and triathlon, then went on to become a coach. He’s ran at Disney World and through Athens. Really…he’s inspirational. And what’s even better…this training season with TNT he will raise his $20,000th dollar towards TNT’s mission of curing cancer.

Dano has blogged through the process and is currently working on a book…a book! Again, inspirational much? He’s recently launched his new website–go check it out at

On to the big project…here are a few photos from our session, and the big finale is at the end…Dano’s Team In Training music video!

Dano, it was an honor to be a part of this and I am so proud of all that you do for all of the cancer patients, families and friends impacted by cancer. You are making such a difference in this world. Way to go, Coach!
