Delilah Explains it All: Q&A #2

Another round of questions for Delilah turned up some fun answers.

What about Coach Gags’ personality as a coach do you like best? — Clint, Madison, WI
Coach Gags understands the mental aspect of the sport really well. With the training year being so long, he is good about injecting a little bit of fun into every practice. He is a pretty good crooner so it is not uncommon for him to tease us about our boyfriends or girlfriends by bursting into song. This approach puts us at ease and keeps us from getting carried away at the wrong time of the year. When it is time to be more serious, he knows exactly what to do to get us to concentrate and feel confident in our preparations.

Delilah Explains It All: Q&A #1

This past week, Delilah explained it all over at, where she fielded some questions that dug a little deeper into her life, as shown in the series DELILAH. A sample, below:

As a Columbia grad, I’m sure you have an affection for the Upper West Side, but, putting the Upper West Side aside, what is your favorite neighborhood in New York and why? — Shannon, Acton, MA
I’m going to eschew the expected LES (Lower East Side) or Gramercy Park areas. While these areas are full of neat restaurants, great shopping and young, hip professionals, I’d probably feel like an outsider. Park Slope, Brooklyn is more my style in that it has a more neighborhood feel, spacious apartments and plenty of greenery, yet it’s still quick subway ride to Manhattan. In my different life, I would choose to live in this area.

Check out the rest of the questions at the link, above. And, you want to know more about Coach Gags or Delilah’s preference in ice cream cakes? Well, then fire away at and get your questions answered.

Delilah: Episode 4 — Fast and Fashionable

It’s hard to imagine living in New York and being sponsored by a fashion-forward company like Puma, but taking a casual approach to style. Yet that’s what Delilah DiCrescenzo does, letting her sponsor’s designs — and her fleet feet — go to work when it comes to making an impression. Behind the scenes, though, the Chicago-native is an accomplished student, and Episode 4 of DELILAH shows the American steeple star both on and off camera.

Delilah: Episode 3 — East Coast Elite

There’s a whole group of people who have helped Delilah DiCrescenzo become a World Championships qualifier, and many of them congregate twice a week at Rutgers University under the guidance of coaching legend Frank Gagliano… better known as “Gags.” Episode 3 of DELILAH rewinds to March to see how Delilah set herself up to be Worlds-bound.

Wondering what’s the funniest thing Gags has said to her? How long the total commute from NYC to NJ is? Don’t be shy: write to ask Delilah whatever’s on your mind.
