4 Feet Running - Ep. 34

It's a spring fling in Plymouth with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Nik, Dan, and the dogs rock on for 3 miles in downtown Plymouth

- Stanley the pointer goes for several swims in Town River while running through Brewster Park

- Nik's in a running funk, but is really liking this Twitter business

- Dan's 10K training plan is going according to plan, but ice cream may sabotage his 10 in 10 Challenge

- They talk about Nik's ancestor who came over on the Mayflower and may or may not have slipped on a banana peel

- Speaking of which, they talk about meeting an older lady clown with a filthy mouth (it's hard to explain ... just listen to it)

- There are no pictures of Plymouth Rock because it's frankly not that impressive

- They read emails and reviews from very nice people

- Special thanks to Gordon from Tiree and Adam "Another Runner" Tinkoff for their song "I Do"
