Daniel Goetz is Littlewing's assistant coach and pacer extraordinaire! He has been working with (and entertaining) these ladies since January of 2015. Daniel was named "Dino" (dee-no) by Jude the Dude, and the nickname stuck. Dino is beloved for his even temperament, relaxed attitude, and Southern charm, which all hide a fierce love of running.
When you first enter the town of Mammoth Lakes, you are greeted with a “Welcome” sign that also includes one of John Muir’s most beloved quotes, “The Mountains are Calling…” I haven’t spent much time in the Eastern Sierras before, though after reading anything by John Muir, and admiring Ansel Adam’s photographs, it was easy to be infatuated with this area before even visiting. There’s a certain magic to these mountains and I’m grateful that I now get to fully experience this place.
