We covered a lot of ground on today’s conversation, but here are a few of the highlights:

  • Deciding to sign up for and run his first ultra-marathon on the same day.
  • Lessons learned from a handful of DNFs.
  • How running ultra-marathons can parallel launching and running a successful business.
  • Running with ultra-marathon veteran John Taylor.

Diz Runs With… Denny Krahe

Today I’m going against the grain a little bit and doing a quick run by myself.

One of the “problems” that I have with always having guests to converse with is that I’m not able to communicate as directly with the listeners of the show. So, from time to time, I’m going to do a solo show to be able to speak directly to you guys in an attempt to find out how I can make the show better.

Today, I wanted to take the time to cover two topics: ideas for how to improve the show and some short term goals I have for the show and website as well.

Ideas for Improvement

    • Sporadic Solo Shows
    • A New Intro
    • More Runs with Race Directors
    • More Giveaways

Short Term Goals

The goals are ambitious for sure, but I know they are attainable if I keep pushing forward. Hopefully, you’ll keep listening and sharing the show to help make these goals possible, and push me on towards bigger and better things.

Diz Runs With… Dane Rauschenberg


For today’s run, I’m joining one of the real extremists in the running community for a few easy miles. Dane Rauschenberg didn’t take up running long distances until he was in law school, and he hasn’t stopped running since.

Dane’s story is unremarkable at first, and probably sounds very similar to many folks that started running after high school and college. And after his first marathon, he didn’t run again for 2 years. Fast forward to today, and Dane is running all of the time.

10264116_10154155284560162_7632183072257102588_oHere are some of the conversational highlights of our run:

  • Organizing a Pikermi race, and pushing to change the name of the Half Marathon to the Pikermi.
  • Setting a PR on the 42nd marathon of his 52 marathons in 52 weeks.
  • How he found out he has Gilbert’s syndrome, and how that makes his accomplishments even more incredible.
  • Running 84 laps on a 1-mile loop in 24 hours.
  • The difference between liking to run and liking to race.

Our conversation was a great one, and talking with Dane really makes me want to start doing some serious pushing to see just how far I can go.

I may never run 52 marathons in 52 weeks, but 5 marathons in 5 days? Stay tuned….

Diz Runs With… Laura Skladzinski


On today’s run, I get to run with a world record holder, a 50 State Club member, and a Century Club member, which is quite a trifecta for a runner.

Laura Skladzinski set the world recored in 2010 as the youngest woman to finish a marathon in each of the 50 states, becoming a 50 stater in the process, and has continued running since then recently earning entry into the marathon runner Century Club.

When I first discovered Laura and learned of her accomplishments, I assumed that she had probably been a life long runner, but I was quite surprised the find out that wasn’t the case.

Here are a few highlights of the conversation we had on our run:

  • Laura started her running “career” with a simple goal–run 1 mile without walking.
  • Why she chose the Vermont City Marathon as her 1st marathon.
  • Going out the night before a race with no decrease in performance.
  • Over the course of 105 marathons, some end up better than others.

Make sure you follow along with Laura as she continues running marathons across the country and around the world.

Diz Runs With… Anders Brooker


Today, I’m running with Anders Brooker, who is the race director for the Missoula Marathon in Missoula, Montana. The race weekend consists of a 5k, Half, Full, kid’s marathon, and beer run, so there is an event available for everyone.

While running with Anders, we obviously talked about the Missoula Marathon but that’s not the only thing we covered. Among the highlights of our run:

  • A recent 50 mile run he wasn’t exactly prepared for
  • Why the race is run in July
  • Why the race has a participant cap
  • Being named The Best Marathon in the United States by Runner’s World in 2010
  • Things to do in Missoula in addition to running 26.2 miles

There are very few races that are on my list of “Races I WILL run on my pursuit of the 50 state club“, but after talking to Anders I’m pretty sure that Missoula is now on the list. Everything about this race sounds like my idea of a perfect race, from the number of runners to the rural environment to the small town feel. I look forward to taking a week or so, and really exploring a part of the country that I’ve never been to before, and running a great race as well.
