Running Towards Your Dreams with Danielle Buglino

Welcome back to the podcast! Today, I’m chatting with finance expert turned running coach Danielle Baglino. Danielle shares her journey from the corporate world to launching her own running business, tackling self-doubt, and the power of now. She gives insights into running, celebrating achievements, and the advantages of a knowledgeable coach. 

Talking Points:

00:02 The Love of Running

Danielle’s love for running started back in college and has only grown since. Danielle was crunching numbers in finance but really wanted to crunch abs and miles instead. She started toying with the idea of a career switch, juggling her day job with dreams of a life in health and fitness. She realized she could actually make a living doing what she loves — coaching runners.

05:21 First Business Steps 

When the world hit pause, Danielle hit play on some serious soul-searching. The lockdown gave her the chance to dream bigger about her future in the fitness world. Danielle wrestled with doubts and the comfort of her old job but kept her eyes on the prize. A heart-to-heart with her other half was a game-changer. His push got Danielle thinking seriously about taking the plunge into a new career path. 

15:23 Getting Comfortable 

Danielle had to get comfy with putting herself out there on social media. It was all about stepping out of her comfort zone to market her coaching skills with clients. Signing up her first paying client was a big win and a sign that she was on the right path. She opens up about building self-belief and realizing she’s got what it takes, despite the initial jitters.

20:41 Running Tips 

Danielle’s advice for new runners? Keep it simple, start small, and don’t worry about anyone else’s pace. She shares her secrets for fitting workouts into a hectic life, like planning ahead and being flexible. Danielle breaks down how to gear up for races of all distances, whether it’s a quick 5k or the long haul of a marathon. She chats about how having a coach can be a game-changer, especially for newbies who are just getting their feet wet.
