4 Feet Running - Ep. 60

Have a second helping of chicken salad, with Part 2 of 4 Feet Running's Willow Tree chicken salad half-marathon in Providence! This week:

- Dan is struggling around the 7.5 mile mark while Nik is adjusting her knee brace and watching her Garmin Forerunner quickly lose battery power

- No tunnel shoutouts this time: Dan has the abdominal stitch to beat all abdominal stitches

- It's a good, bad, and ugly kind of race but have a great time, despite not getting a space blanket

- They get spotted from listener Tim at the finish line (sorry, it was hard to hear everything, Tim)

- How Nik and Dan's knees have held up since the race

- They read tons of feedback from lots of wonderful people

- It's a Voice-Mail-O-Rama!

- The mystery of why Dan is not the Chi Running guy

4 Feet Running - Ep. 59

Have a Willow Tree chicken salad sandwich, hold the sandwich, with 4 Feet Running! This is Part 1 of a 2-part half-stravaganza! This week:

- Nik and Dan prepare to run the Willow Tree chicken salad Half-Marathon in Providence, Rhode Island

- If they can ever find the start line

- Little things get in the way, from vomiting dogs to Garmins that won't sleep, from ass-knots to twingey knees

- Take a little trip down memory lane as they remember how Dan got himself into this half-marathon mess

- Nik decides she'll pace Dan for the half so she can see him run double-digits in person (and her knee hurts)

- More tunnel shout-outs than you can shake an underpass at

- Why you shouldn't wear bad shoes even for sitting in a cubicle

- Testicle shout-out! Woo hoo testicles!

- They meet Ron Burgundy's doppelganger standing in the middle of nowhere

- Even though she's broken here and there, Nik is running pretty well, and Dan's having the best run of his life...until, dot-dot-dot...

- Will Dan make it through the rest of the race intact? Will Nik's Garmin keep a charge until the end? And why is someone convinced that Dan is the Chi-Running guru Danny Dreyer? Tune in next time!
