Endofound: How long have you been running marathons?

Daniel: I’ve been running marathons for about 4 years. However, this will only be my third because I trained for the one marathon that was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy.



Endofound: What is the most fun part of training? What is the most difficult?

Daniel: Running on beautiful days and/or during summer thunderstorms is the fun part. Running through injury and/or exhaustion has proven to be difficult.


Endofound: What first inspired you to get involved with charitable running for theTCS NYC Marathon and support the Endometriosis Foundation of America?

Daniel: My sister, Jessica Gunter, is an endometriosis advocate and I thought that this is a great way to show my support for her.


Endofound: What kinds of other activities- if any- have you been involved with when supporting the Endofound?

Daniel: None yet. But I look forward to continuing my support of the organization.


Endofound: Can you share a little bit about your personal story with endometriosis?

Daniel: My sister was diagnosed with a severe case requiring a serious surgery.


Endofound: Why is it important for others to support the Endofound?

Daniel: I think it’s important because it is a condition that is fiercely misunderstood and misdiagnosed within the medical community. Unnecessary suffering needs to stop and education and awareness needs to pervade.


Endofound: How do you plan on celebrating once you’ve finished the marathon in November?

Daniel: Drinking beer, feasting on food, and soaking in the tub.
