A Wine and Dine Chat

The Wine and Dine Half Marathon is coming up quick, and I for one, am super excited that the race will be here in just a few more weeks!

This race is easily my favorite runDisney event that I’ve run, and I look forward to the race every year. I’ve run the race every year that it has been in existence, and I’m looking forward to making it a perfect 5 for 5 this year.

Looking Forward to Another Wine and Dine Half!

Diz Runs With… John Noblin


On todays show, I’m joining John Noblin, the race director for the Mississippi Blues Marathon, for a few easy miles to talk about running in and around Jackson, Mississippi.

We talk a lot about the Mississippi Blues Marathon, obviously, but we also touched on many of John’s experiences as a runner and how the race came into existence. Here are a few of the highlights: Read more

A Running Coach Without the Title

Does a running coach NEED to be RRCA certified?

This is a question I’ve been kicking around in my head for some time now.

As I’m now taking on clients as a running coach and creating training plans for runners of all race distances, I’ve gone back and forth on whether or not I should pursue RRCA certification as a coach.

I don’t think I am going to. Read more

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.
