    New Episode! Running in the Center of the Universe Episode #275

    New episode! Thanks for coming back to the podcast. I've met in person and online so many interesting people through producing this podcast. I've decided to keep it grass roots which means you as a listener are important to me. Please contact me at ashlanddave@gmail.com and let me know where you hail from and what type of distance running you do or aspire to do. I don't work for the government anymore which means I have much more freedom! Thanks for downloading the show!

    Dave's Back! - Episode #274 - Encore Presentation Podcast

    After retiring from 27 years of police work in the Commonwealth of Virginia, my life changed more than I expected. I took a hiatus from the podcast and other things in my life. I'm grounded now and plan to continue the podcast. This is a short episode with a few announcements followed by an 'encore' presentation of episode #100 which is a race report from my first 50 miler in June of 2010. Thanks for coming back and listening!

    Dave's Done! - Police Retirement - Episode #273

    Dave's Done! - Police Retirement - Episode #273

    I've always heard retired people say they're busier in retirement than when they were working. I have finished my law enforcement career and took six weeks off prior to starting a new job. I was busier than ever in the interim, so it's true, for me at least.
     
    This episode has a little update regarding closing one chapter and opening a new one. I hope you enjoy the show!

You could be lining up next to Ashland Dave

A great podcast for all runners from beginning 5k runners and experienced ultra runners. Ashland Dave provides a supportive, inclusive and informative podcast about the ups and downs of running. Although he describes himself as "a middle of the pack nobody”, I find Dave to be funny, thoughtful and full of good advice. Give him a listen.

Petty

First time listening will be my last. Ashland Dave spent most of his hour long race report for the night train 50k bad mouthing another runner and informing the audience how they could look him up. Not cool Dave.

Sweeping the Course

This was a great podcast, Dave. I have done the race (Oak Mountain 50K) a few times and Neil sums things up well. It is not an easy course, but is very scenic. My only DNF occurred here one year, and so I have a score to settle!

Enjoying your podcast as usual!
