Polina Carlson Interview

Polina Carlson Wasn’t a Runner Until She Got to College


When Polina Carlson came to America, the idea of being a professional runner was the farthest possible thing from her mind.

She wouldn’t have even called herself a runner at that point in her life.

It’s funny how things change in just a few short years.

Polina Carlson Interview

From non-runner to Olympic Trials qualifier, Polina Carlson is taking the running world by storm. She’s won a number of races from the 5k to the marathon, and she is continuing to improve with a number of new PRs already in 2015.

We talked about how she got into running, her goals for this year, and a whole lot more during our run. Read more

Diz Runs With… Tyler McCandless


The 2016 Olympics are the goal of Tyler McCandless. Yet he has found more success as a runner as he has focused less on running and more on some of his other endeavors.

Diz Runs With… Dane Rauschenberg


For today’s run, I’m joining one of the real extremists in the running community for a few easy miles. Dane Rauschenberg didn’t take up running long distances until he was in law school, and he hasn’t stopped running since.

Dane’s story is unremarkable at first, and probably sounds very similar to many folks that started running after high school and college. And after his first marathon, he didn’t run again for 2 years. Fast forward to today, and Dane is running all of the time.

  • Organizing a Pikermi race, and pushing to change the name of the Half Marathon to the Pikermi.
  • Setting a PR on the 42nd marathon of his 52 marathons in 52 weeks.
  • How he found out he has Gilbert’s syndrome, and how that makes his accomplishments even more incredible.
  • Running 84 laps on a 1-mile loop in 24 hours.
  • The difference between liking to run and liking to race.

Our conversation was a great one, and talking with Dane really makes me want to start doing some serious pushing to see just how far I can go.

I may never run 52 marathons in 52 weeks, but 5 marathons in 5 days? Stay tuned….
