David Scibor

How did you get into racing endurance events?

There was a series of swim-run events on Maui called the AluminuMan when I lived on the island. It called itself the "not so serious race series" and introduced me to open water swimming. My first swims included fins and a snorkel, but they gave me the confidence to move over to traditional swimming and allowed me to pursue my first triathlon.

If applicable, what is your favorite discipline? Why?

Cycling. My swim deficit puts me in a great position to pass a lot of cyclists!

Do you have a favorite local race?

Raleigh 70.3

What would you consider your career highlight?

Competing in the 2012 Kona Ironman.

What would you consider your biggest challenge?

Overcoming limiting beliefs.

What is the biggest race day mistake you've made?

Not eating on the bike portion of my first 70.3. Let's just say the run that day was harder then I anticipated!

What is one training tool you couldn't live without?

The kitchen blender.

Do you have a strict nutrition/recovery regimen?

I drink a fresh fruit and vegetable smoothie on a daily basis. Otherwise I am flexible.

If you have any advice for folks who have yet to begin their endurance racing journey, what would it be?

Add a race to the calendar before you are ready. It is great motivation to complete the training.

"after each session with Mike Dannenberg,
I walk away with new tools and a better understanding for how I can improve my running form and overall training performance. Not only is he an expert at the ART technique, he's taught me a lot about nutrition and hydration - all of the things needed for great athletic performance on and off the race course!"

"I have been going to see Mike and Matt at Performance Therapy for a few months now and all I can say is that they live up to the promise of their name! PERFORMANCE + THERAPY as in I've been experiencing tremendous gains in my endurance sports performance without the debilitating injuries that I have had in the past when pushing my body too hard. Mike has been using ART and other techniques to work on some serious scar tissue in my hamstring, but has also worked on correcting various inefficiencies in my running gait and posture. Matt is my strength coach and has been working with me on my mobility and fostering new movement patterns to correct my bad habits. A well earned 5 star rating for Performance Therapy! Top marks."
