    Mid-Week Runs Don't Run By Themselves - Pandemic Over - Episode #282

    Mid-Week Runs Don't Run By Themselves - Pandemic Over - Episode #282

    Being a weekend warrior with only doing the group run will eventually catch up to you. Ashland Bob figured that out and so did I. I had no idea a comment I made one day would resonate with Bob and circle back to me in my own training. I talk about that and a huge stack of stuff in this episode which includes the email bag and some comments on the pandemic. Thanks for coming back and listening to the show! Contact me at ashlanddave@gmail.com and let me know where you hail from and what kind of running you do. I love to hear from listeners of the show!

    Dave is back with some new running inspiration thanks to Keith Cartwright. Keith is a distance runner in the Center of the Universe and Dave interviewed Keith about his recent ultra running accomplishment. Keith looks at distance running a little bit different than some and it's really refreshing to hear him talk. 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.

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!
