19 Things to Know about The Boss

Darius M. Moore

  1. Occupation in the real world? Run Coach for Moore Moves & Trainer at 9Round Kickboxing

  2. Why should Charlotte runners know you? Charlotte needs to know that one of their own, runs every step with his hometown in his heart. I run to alter the typical narrative of an  inner-city youth. To give all that I encounter, inspiration through my passion for running. 

  3. When did you start running? I used to run Track as a kid. And fell out of love with it, due to lack of support I thought I needed. At the age of 23, I took on a challenge of running a half marathon. It helped me fall back in love, with the sport of Running. No matter the distance, every step is a gift.  

  4. What do you love about running? What I love most about Running, is how it connects us all. All colors and beliefs are welcome. No judgement. Just welcoming words. And the occasional adult beverage.

  5. Running accomplishment you’re most proud of? In 2017, I broke a Guinness World record! I ran the Race 13.1 half marathon, in 1:33. Which gave me the, “Fastest half marathon ran in a Video Game character costume.” I wore the mantle of Dhalsim. One of my favorite, peaceful fighters from the Street Fighter franchise. 

  6. Do you have a coach or coach yourself? Do I have a Coach? Not really...I’d say the world is my Coach. I have sort of an unorthodox method of training. As I prefer to learn from multiple Coaches and Trainers. 

  7. Best advice you’ve received? Never wear new running gear on race day….I learned that after  some painful chafing, caused by some very fuzzy arm warmers. 

  8. Favorite training workout? Stairs or Hill repeats

  9. Most dreaded training workout? Yasso 800’s

  10. What is your go-to nutrition for a long run/race? Bananas, croissants, & water

  11. What is the longest run you’ve ever done? 50K

  12. What is your go-to every day training shoe for easy miles? NIke Pegasus

  13. Your favorite weekly group run in Charlotte? NoDa Wednesday and Sunday Run

  14. What are your PR’s in the full marathon? Half Marathon? 5k? Mile? Full-3:10:30, Half-1:23:22, 5K-18:51, Mile-04:45

  15. Favorite local 5k? Runway 5K

  16. Favorite local non-profit or charity? RunningWorks

  17. Advice you’d give for a new runner? Don’t think of running as a job or task. Instead, deal with it as a challenge, to earn something you really want at the finish. Be it Oreo cheesecake, or a nice cold craft brew. Run as long as you can, with good form. Adding a few minutes onto each workout, every few weeks. 

  18. Favorite sports team? NFL-Dallas Cowboys, NBA-Charlotte Hornets, MLB-Chicago Cubs, NCAA-UNC Tar Heels

  19. List your Running Goals. For the past 4 years, I’ve had a personal goal. To run a half marathon in all 50 states, and 7 continents. So far, I’ve competed in 20 states. Also I’d like to train an Olympic Runner. From their youth competitions, to the BIG STAGE!!
