4 Feet Running - Ep. 54

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's 4 Feet Running's Super 5K race! This week:

- Nik and Dan head to beautiful Narragansett, R.I., for the Super 5K

- They prove to be invincible to cold weather, but Nik's kryptonite: rocks in her shoes

- Hammer Nutrition? You CAN touch this

- Dan takes his new Garmin 205 for a spin and loves how it helps his new Uncle Higgy schedule

- "You don't see this many people in tights unless it's a race"

- "The people I run with in races tend to be sort of elderly and a little bit broken-looking"

- It's a battle of the dueling Garmin tracking websites, with MotionBased vs. Garmin Connect(check out both logs to compare & contrast)

- They read tons of great e-mail from wonderful people

4 Feet Running - Ep. 53

Make way for 4 Feet Running! This action-packed week:

- Nik, Dan, and the dogs run 3 miles in Boston's Public Garden and Common

- Nik starts her San Diego Marathon training plan and is liking it, except for a tiny little pain in her shin that comes & goes

- Constant snow and ice keeps frustrating them, and work gets in the way of Dan's running (really, trust me)

- They may have witnessed a horrible crime in the middle of the Public Garden

- The difference between cable exercises and kegel exercises

- Rest In Peace: Dan's NikePlus Sportband. In a related development, Dan gets an early birthday present

- Who would win in a fight: a monkey or a unicorn?

- Want to support the move to get Dan's chubby bum out on the road? Buy your "DAN GO RUN" gear here at Cafe Press

- They read tons of great email from wonderful people
