The Biggest Competition for Teresa DeMers is Herself


Today I’m running a few easy miles with an athlete that is no stranger to the show.

Teresa DeMers, also known as Pumpkin, was on the show nearly 100 episodes ago for the Salty Running Extravaganza.

New Years Resolutions, Success, Work

Are Marathoners Better at Keeping New Years Resolutions?

New Years Resolutions (or any big goals, for that matter) sound good for the first few days of the year. But, now that we are a couple of weeks into 2015, the burden associated with keeping our resolutions start to get real. By now, we are back at work, the kids are back in school, and the demands of “real life” are back with a vengeance and our resolutions become more and more difficult to maintain.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that many people are struggling to keep their New Years Resolutions by the second week of January. However, I’m still going strong on my resolutions for 2015, and I have no plans to start slacking in the foreseeable future.

Now, I don’t say this to brag. I’m struggling with a couple of my resolutions, but I have strategies in place to help me pick up the slack without sacrificing the momentum I’ve created on the goals that are going strong right now. Read more

Diz Runs With… Liza Howard


Stopping to pump breast milk while running (and winning!) an ultra marathon is just another day at the office for Liza Howard. I joined Liza for a few easy miles recently, and we had a pretty awesome conversation.

Liza Howard-san?

 

Liza and I talked about running, of course, but as we both have young kids family and parenthood stories were topics we transitioned into as well. Liza got started in running ultra marathons basically because of the peer pressure of hanging out with other ultra runners and just getting talked into running longer and longer distances. And like I always say, peer pressure is no fun until you give in! Read more

Diz Runs With… Ian Sharman


On today’s run, I’m joining Ian Sharman for a few easy miles. Now, if you don’t know who Ian is, you’re obviously not a member of the ultra marathon community.

Ian Sharman

Since he started running, which was only about 10 years ago, he has completed 200 marathon or longer races! He has also set a new record for the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning, become the director of the US Sky Running Series, and coaches some of the top ultra marathoners in the world. To say this guy is a pillar in the ultra running community is obviously an understatement. Read more

Diz Runs With… Amy Hughes


On this episode of the Diz Runs With podcast, I’m chatting with Amy Hughes who recently completed an astounding 53 marathons in 53 different cities in 53 days!

Obviously that’s a pretty amazing feat, but what is most incredible to me is that she did all this running for causes way bigger than any person! Her mission was two-fold, to bring attention to the importance of physical activity for children and to raise awareness and funding for the Isabelle Lottie Foundation. Read more
