I've bounced back for the most part from my back injury. I think I can get in some long mileage weeks before the 50 miler on February 3. One of my problems is I have a side job that gets in the way on Saturdays. That and more in this shorter version of the Running in the Center of the Universe podcast. Thanks for downloading the show.

I fell down some steps and hurt my back pretty bad. As a result, I lost two weeks of training. This is not a good situation with a 50 miler scheduled for February 3, 2018 and then a 50k the month after that. This show has my commentary about that and a new "map run" project I hope to start soon. Thanks for listening!

I finally thinned out my collection of race shirts. It's something I've needed to do for a long time so I finally did it. Many old stories came to mind during the process and that's the content of this episode. Thanks for downloading the show.

Citizens in the United States have different ideas regarding what patriotism means. I have an opinion and I share that opinion in this podcast. This show also has lots of information about distance running too! Thanks for downloading the show.

Pray for our United States. Where are we headed as an American people? Is the country too big to agree on anything reasonable? How do we as a society cope with painful parts of our history that are commemorated in statues, monuments, parks, schools, or government buildings? This is a monologue that I wrote about how I see things. You might not like it. I live in the middle of the conflict and it's front and center to the media coverage I see and the people I interact with personally and professionally. Pray for our United States.

My persespective regarding sprinting to the finish line of an ultramarathon and passing another runner right at the end may have changed. That and more in this episode of the Running in the Center of the Universe podcast!

I had a successful finish at the inaugural Night Train 50k ultramarathon in Farmville, Virginia. The oppressive heat and humidity were really tough on me but the support of my family and friends made a finish possible. Some interesting things happened along the way, as they always do, to make the experience memorable. That and more in this episode!

Here are some pics of my crew and the overall experience. All finishers received a magnet, very typical for small ultramarathons that interest me.
