Ashland Dave: Runner , Podcaster, and Friend

When I got into running around at the end of 2010 I begin to seek out anything running related.  This included books, magazines, blogs, documentaries, and social media outlets.   At some point, not sure when, I discovered podcast. It changed my world. Several shows I enjoyed, in the early days, and are still out there. There are few that i listen to on a regular basis.  Some shows I feel lost there way, by going to commercial, and only focusing on the Elite runners of the sport.  Which is fine. its a business.  I always root for the under dog, the mid packer.  Dave, who has kept it real and honest, would call himself a back of the packer.  Dave is runner and inspiration to me!
I begin emailing Dave in regards to his show topics. It was like having a pen pal.  At some point it seems we become friends.  I hope to meet Dave one day.  I'll never forger when he asked to  interview me about my first 100 miler foot race Javelina Jundred  "JJ100"

Being a big fan of podcast, this blew me away, I was so nervous and felt like I rambled on and on.   
Although I used to record and preform hip hop music.  I dislike my voice,  but I was proud of that podcast. 
Since 2013 I have regularly been a listener and contributor to the show: in the since that I email regularly .
I want to support a friend.  SO!
Besides podcasting, Dave had also made some Running Documentaries.  All the Proceeds go to a charity  local place in Ashland, Virginia
