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.

My friend, Ryan, lives in Calgaray, Canada but he used to live right here in central Virginia. He recently organized a relay team that covered 150 kilometers to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary. His team came in 10th out of 37 teams which is awesome!

I thought doing a 50k in Michigan would be the only race I would do this spring but I'm still in good shape and decided to do another one. My next 50k will be in Virginia and it's an inaugural race directed by an excellent RD I'm familiar with. I guess we will see what happens! I talk about the upcoming Night Train 50k and other topics in this podcast. Thanks for listening!
