Proud to Be Part of the Lakeland Runner's Club

If You’re Not a Member of Your Local Running Club, It’s Time

One of the best things about the running community is the community itself.

As an active member of the online running community, I’ve loved the friends of made from around the world as a direct result of the running community.

But as awesome as the online running community is, there is nothing like having a local community of runners to be a part of.

If you’ve thought about joining your local running club, but haven’t yet for whatever reason, I’d encourage you to do it.

Here are 10 reasons that I am proud of being a member of my local running club, in case you need help deciding to join your local club.

The Dynamics of the Group Run

Quick Tip–Group Run Etiquette and Rules of the Road

When I have my choice, I love being a part of a group run. Getting a group of running friends together always pushes me to run farther or faster than I would on my own, whether it’s a speed workout, tempo run, or long run.

I love the group that I run with, and am really itching to get back out with them soon since I’ve missed them a lot since the baby was born.

But anytime you get a number of people together for a group run, you wind up with a set of issues that you don’t have to deal with when running by yourself or with just one or two others.

Each group is likely going to have their own set of “rules” for the group, but it’s important that everyone participating in the group run are on the same page regarding a number of issues that may come up from time to time.

Jeffrey James Binney Is Changing His Life and Making a Move at the Same Time

Jeffrey James Binney is Running Leadville & That’s No Joke!

On today’s show, I’m joining comedian/actor Jeffrey James Binney for a few easy miles. Jeffrey has taken up running in an attempt to lose weight, improve his health, and push himself to new limits.

Jeffrey James Binney Is Changing His Life and Making  a Move at the Same Time

Jeffrey James Binney

And the catalyst to making these changes in his life? Losing his mom at the age of 58 to heart disease brought about by obesity. At 330+ pounds he didn’t want to go down the same path with his health, and he started running.

He started slow, and built up, and now he is training for the Leadville 100. Read more

Just a Little Heads Up for my Fellow Winers and Diners

If you’re reading this post, odds are you are a somewhat regular reader of the blog.

And for that, I really want to say thank you.

I’ve had a lot of people ask me about potentially offering some kind of group coaching program, and I’ve held off on that for a variety of reason. But that’s about to change.

And I want to give those of you that are subscribed to the blog a little heads up and what I’m doing and give you a chance to get in on the action (if you want) for a super low price.


I’m super excited about this.

I’m putting together a group training program for one specific race, and it just so happens to be my absolute favorite race at Walt Disney World-the Wine and Dine Half Marathon.

You’re going to be hearing a lot more about this program in the coming weeks, but until registration opens on Tuesday, I’ve slashed the price from $97 to $37. So if you’re thinking about running this race, and if you’re thinking you’d like to meet some awesome runners and have a specific program in place, I’d encourage you to jump at this opportunity.

All of the details are available by clicking this link, and I’ll be explaining much more about what I’ll be offering going forward.

But please know, with what I have planned, the regular price for this is a steal. So take advantage.

And if you’re not sure, there is a 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. So grab it for $37, and if you decide to change your mind as you learn more about it, no harm no foul.

But I can pretty much guarantee, you’ll be glad.

Behind the Scenes of the Diz Runs With Podcast (post with video)

I really enjoy putting together the Diz Runs With podcast, and I’m so appreciative to everyone that has taken the time to listen to an episode.

What I didn’t realize until I started podcasting is exactly how much work actually goes into creating each episode. From scheduling guests, to doing some research, to editing, posting, and promoting having your own podcast can eat up massive amounts of time.

So today, I’m taking you behind the scenes of my podcast, to give you a little glimpse of how the magic happens.
