Daniel Baron

2024 Training Coach

Coach Daniel took up running at the age of 40 when his doctor recommended “a little aerobic exercise.” Since then, he has run everything from 5Ks to 50Ks but specializes in a yearly spring and a yearly fall marathon. His continuing personal goal is a sub 3 hour marathon. 

Daniel is interested in all aspects of staying fit, including strength training, cross training, sport psychology, and nutrition.

After a 27 year career teaching the German language and high school history classes, Daniel delved into coaching with the Edina Boys Cross Country team as well as gaining UESCA coaching certification. He is excited to coach with Run Minnesota as a past participant of the MDRA marathon classes where he met his cadre of great running friends. As a former teacher, Daniel takes an encouraging, as well as individualized, approach to help people be the runner they want to be.
