4 Feet Running - Ep. 64

Celebrate 2 whole years of 4 Feet Running with Nik and Dan! This week:

- They're actually not at a race for a change -- weird, innit?

- Warning: There's so much gory news in this episode for some reason, it's like CSI: 4 Feet Running

- Updates on Nik's knees and ankles, and why she's not using Uncle Higgy anymore

- Dan remembers his running beginnings and first milestones - He also runs into a telephone pole

- They get to see actual cows (sorry, they forgot to take the camera), and they'll tell you where in Fall River the buffalo roam and the pigeons race

- They look ahead to their next year of running and the races ahead

- Lots of great feedback from wonderful listeners, and a Special Guest Appearance by Carnac the Magnificent and his sidekick Gordon

4 Feet Running - Ep. 63

It's a family fun-day road race on the 4th of July with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Meet Dan's mom, who is walking her first-ever road race: the Mattapoisett 5-mile Road Race

- Dan's mom is kind of shy about talking into the mike

- Special guest appearances by John from the Poi and his friend Martin, a former marathoner and current cranberry engineer

- Nik tries to overcome a string of lousy runs, Dan's mom gets tips for a first-time road-racer, and Dan keeps his mom company

- Two stop-lights, a post office, and a lot of friendly people: that's Mattapoisett

- They set up another giveaway in the 4 Feet Running Book Club: Running and Being by Dr. George Sheehan -- listen to find out when!

- Nik realizes one meal of pancakes a day is her limit -- not two

- Dan decides to don the luchador mask for a special 5K road race in October (and possibly a cape)

- Tons of fantastic email from wonderful listeners
