4 Feet Running - Ep. 39

There's foreshadowing, suspense, and dramatic irony aplenty with 4 Feet Running with Nik and Dan! This week:

- Nik and Dan run the Fairhaven Father's Day Road Race 10K

- They predict it won't rain -- guess what happens?

- Nik has mysterious trouble with her Garmin -- guess what happens?

- Dan hopes he won't be in last place for his first 10K -- guess what almost happens?

- They recover from their lousy races with a nice, relaxing walk, where everyone's a winner

- Their dog Stanley has interesting (and expensive) food preferences

- Nik shares her first look at the Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS sports watch

- Dan wraps up his 10 in 10 in 10 Challenge (10 weeks, 10 pounds, 10K) and looks to the future with sunny optimism

4 Feet Running - Ep. 38

Have a very Vermonty time with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Nik and Dan and their dogs are in glorious Burlington, Vt., for a week

- Nik prepares to run her 4th 26.2-miler, the Keybank Vermont City Marathon

- It should be beautiful in Vermont this time of year -- all that snow...

- Somehow Dan gets a free marathon T-shirt even though he doesn't run the race

- They keep an eye out for Burlington nudists

- Nik and Dan discuss their training plans, bicycling through Canada, science vs. yoga, and why no one ever runs out of Chapstick

- Nik has a great time running the race

- She talks about what it's like running 2 marathons in 1 month, and Dan talks about how he grunts when he runs

- They get some great feedback from very nice people
