Ethan Darden

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Thousand Oaks, where I attended and ran for Thousand Oaks Cross Country and Track and field all four years.
When did you start running?
I started running 15 years ago when I was a gremlin with the Newbury Park Youth Track Club
What do you do outside of working at Future Track?
I'm a student at UC Santa Cruz
What are you majoring in?
I'm majoring in global economics
What is your current favorite shoe and why?
Currently I'm running in the Saucony Endorphin Shift, which I love for the roll geometry of the outsole and the firm cushioning in the midfoot and forefoot. It's a heavier shoe but the responsiveness of the rigid midsole makes it feel much lighter when it's on your foot.
What is a running goal you have right now?
Coming back from a back injury, right now I am just trying to get into half Marathon shape, for whenever half marathons are a thing again.
Why do you run?
Because it's fun!
Favorite pre-race meal?
Banana or a graham cracker with peanut butter.
Favorite Post-run meal?
Anything with al pastor in it.
Advice for a new runner? 
Run when it's cool out in the morning or evenings! It's hard to fall in love with running when your only exposure to it is in the heat. You will have better workouts, and more fun, if you run when it's still cool.
Favorite Professional Runner?
Gotta respect Jared Ward for carrying on the American marathoning tradition.
What is your favorite running event that you have completed?
It's a tough choice between the Woodbridge classic cross country invitational, and the Santa to the Sea half marathon. There is a great atmosphere at the woodbridge classic, but the
Santa to the Sea half marathon is a great course and always has great weather for running.
Non Running Hobbies?
I love to bake, hike, and do the New York times crossword.
