The much anticipated (mostly on my part) 200th episode is here. This show has the 'stand up and be counted' campaign listener roll call plus the Dalhgren Rail Heritage Trail (or is it the Dahlgren Heritage Rail Trail?) 50k race report. Thanks for listening. I can be contacted at ashlanddave@gmail.com.

This is the first Running in the Center of the Universe podcast episode from 2008 that started it all. I meant to include parts of it within episode #200 but forgot. Low quality!

I've learned and observed some things over the years. I've done 198 podcasts about running and other stuff. For the 199th, I decided to share a few things I've seen along the way. Some of what I say may piss you off but I hope you'll get over it and keep running. Because that's the whole point. Keep running to the finish and keep on running. Opinions come and go but finishing lasts forever. 

Thanks for listening.

My good friend Sandy Stiner ran 5 marathons in 5 states in 5 days back in September 2013. This is remarkable…and she wasn't alone! Other people do this stuff too! Listen to this episode and hear from Sandy about her experience. 

Also, this show includes notes from Chad Palmer's Black Canyon 100k in Arizona, a mention of a new fitness podcast and how to get involved in the Stand Up and Be Counted campaign.

Ok, you've registered for your race and you're really excited about doing something huge. But what happens after a few months when things aren't so great anymore? How do you keep your training exciting? Well, I don't know but I spend some time talking about that and more in this episode.
