Sarah Clancy is Finding Time For Just About Everything in Her Busy Life


Today I’m running a few easy miles with a woman that is able to handling multiple things at once.

A runner for many years, Sarah Clancy has run numerous races of all distances.

After having her first child, Sarah decided to start her own business as a designer.

A few years and another baby later, and things are really starting to take off at Sarah Marie Design Studio!

Big Apple Running

As a 20 year old living in New York City, running quickly became Sarah’s favorite pastime.

Sarah has many fond memories from her days running in the city, in large part because of the fact that no matter where you turn, you will always find a running path.

One of Sarah’s favorite races is the New York City Marathon.

Sarah has learned a few tips and tricks to run that race well, and enjoy it at the same time:

  • Map it out and know where your turns are. A lot of time is wasted if you’re trying to run on the outside of your corners.
  • Know what you’re getting into. When you understand the ups and downs of your race you will enjoy it for what it is.
  • Coordinating with friends to give you food/water during the race.

Sarah Clancy is able to balance everything on her plate, head on over to dizruns.com to find out how she does it. Click To Tweet

Organic Beginnings

After doctor’s orders to stop running due to her pregnancy, Sarah was looking for something to fill that void of time. She began to draw again and design clothes.

People started to notice her work, and were asking where they could get her products.

Sarah started selling a few shirts here and a few shirts there until things started to really take off.

A Full Plate

With all of the things in Sarah’s life that need her attention how does she manage them all?

Sarah has found that the best thing to do is not to look at balancing day by day but rather week by week or month by month.

It’s hard to spread your attention evenly to so many different areas each day.

Kind of like training for a race…

Neil Adams in the Fan Dance Races

Neil Adams has Seen Running Evolve in the Various Stages of His Life


I originally connect with Neil Adams in an entrepreneurial Facebook group that I’m a part of where, to put it mildly, I don’t see many runners.

After a quick back and forth, I invited him on the show without hesitation.

Running Before and After the Military

Neil is an ex-Royal Marine Commando, but he was a runner before he had to run as part of his training.

Before his military days, Neil was more of a sprinter and less of a distance runner.

Now that he’s out of the military, he still enjoys a good run.

Whether it’s to clear his head, burn off stress, or for a good cause, Neil will continue to get out there everytime he has the chance.

Running for a Friend

A good friend of Neil’s suffered a head injury recently, and as a result of his injury, his life has changed together.

Neil, as any good friend would be likely to do, has taken it upon himself to help his friend.

And the way of doing it is to organize a 90-mile relay style race to bring people together and raise money to donate to his friend’s long term care and needs.

Neil is heading up the effort, and the run will be happening in June.

IKAN Fitness

The foundation for Neil’s personal training business is built upon the acronym IKAN.

The principals relate to us as runners as well.

Inspiration: What do you do it? What do you run or care about your health/fitness?

Knowledge: If you don’t know what to do ask. If you need help, hire someone to help.

Achieve: You’re capable of success as long as employ patience and persistance.

Nutrition: Gotta fuel the body well to get the results you desire.


If you’d like to connect with Neil, check out his website and/or say hi on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. And if you’d like more information on the race he’s putting together, join the FB group.
