Dana Anderson Balances Running on the Roads and the Trails


Dana Anderson has only been running for a handful of years, but in that time she has accomplished quite a lot.

She’s run several marathons, though she says she’s still trying to figure out how to really race the distance, and now she’s starting to test the waters of trail running and ultra distance races. And transitioning to trail running has been a good choice for a couple of reasons.

Dana Anderson loves to run Corner Canyon in Draper, Utah.

We covered a lot of ground in today’s chat, from getting into trail running (which I would really like to do more of), continuing to push herself in road races, family dynamics, and something that many runners overlook that can dramatically improve running performance. Read more

On today’s show, I’m running with someone that is truly living the dream.

It takes a special type of person to get out of the corporate world, pack up the wife and kids, and move down to Guatemala to start a business that centers on running. But that’s exactly what Greg Jensen did.  Read more

Diz Runs With… Vanessa Runs


On today’s run, I’m joining Vanessa Runs on the trails out in sunny Southern California. If you’ve never heard of Vanessa before, you are in for a treat.

Vanessa is living the kind of life that you’re either repulsed by or completely jealous of–traveling around North America in an RV with her boyfriend, dog, and cat, and stopping to run whenever they feel like it.

We obviously talked a lot about her nomadic lifestyle during our run, but we covered a number of other topics as well. Some of the highlights include:

  • The process of going from a “normal” life to being a modern day nomad.
  • How friends and family reacted to the news.
  • The positives and negatives of living in an RV.
  • Her first book, Amazon best-seller Summit Seeker, the book she’s working on now, and plans for future books.
  • Her experience with Mount Marathon in Seward, Alaska.

If you want to find out more about what Vanessa is doing, feel free to find her in a variety of places online. And don’t be afraid to reach out to her with any questions or comments that you might have, because she is quick to respond and enjoys the interaction.

Check out her website/blog.

Find her on Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

On her website, there is a link to Amazon to buy her book. If you want to save a step, just click here to buy Summit Seeker.
