How I’m Going to Take the (Virtual) Running World By Storm in 2015

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with New Years Resolutions for a number of years now.

Calvin and Hobbes. Classic…

For most of my life, I really thought the idea of making resolutions was ridiculous. My thought had always been that deciding to do something positive for your life/health was too important to wait for a new year to begin. Also, there is a lot more pressure to keep your resolutions than there is to continue the good habits you decided to implement on a random day in April, July, October, or whenever else you decided to start.

So instead of waiting for a new year to get started, why not focus on bettering yourself every day? Read more

Diz Runs With… Bruce Van Horn


On today’s run, I’m joining Bruce Van Horn, who literally credits running with saving his life. He was in a dark place on a variety of fronts (work, relational, overweight, just unhappy), and was always looking for the next “bad thing” to happen.

That all changed when he listened to his brother’s encouraging words and started running again for the first time since being a member of the cross country team in high school.

Diz Runs With… Maverick Carnegie


On today’s episode, I’m joined by a really cool cat. Maverick Carnegie is a distance runner at heart, but his focus isn’t only on his running right now, even though his goal is to make it to the Olympics in 2016. Read more

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… 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.
