Dom di Tommaso (@domtomato) is a freerunner, a certified mind blower, and the guy behind one of our favorite Instagram pages and YouTube channels in the world. He is also a fascinating person and a perfect reminder that “running” is not a sport that we should narrowly define. So we talked to Dom about his uncommon upbringing; his training, his focus, his injury history, and how he avoids dying doing the stuff he does; similarities between the freerunning community and the long-distance running community; and more.

  1. Dom is amazing and I found it super interesting (and it made sense) that he was into figure skating and ballet at a young age. He has a positive infectious attitude and I wish him the best and I really hope he doesn’t get hurt throwing front flips off of 5 meters onto concrete.
    I trail run and was told to ease into it as your micro muscles around your ankles strengthen and can take rougher terrain as one transitions from road running. I generally found that to be true. Dom must have crazy strength around his ankles and knees and I think he would CRUSH trail running downhills.
