Nik attaches her race bib to her fuel belt in a cool, stylish place.

Nik stands in the spot where she and Dan have arranged to meet -- right by the lady in the blue coat biting her nails through her gloves.


Nik lines up with all the other runners -- there were about 2,000 in all. Not all in the photo.


While she ran the race, Dan decided to hit some of New Bedford's hotspots.


This is the church that Herman Melville used as the inspiration for the chapel in the beginning of "Moby-Dick." This is interesting to, like, 6 other people.


This is one of the nicer areas of New Bedford, in the historic district.


Nik runs across the finish line. For once, there wasn't anybody blocking Dan's view.

What was that thing on your ankle and why did it hurt you?


Thanks for the shout out about my blog and all on your show 28 or 29.

Nik: Hang in there!

Dan: Keep it up!

It looks like the timing chip. Those ankle ones are usually reserved for triathlons I figured. Looks like it blistered ya up pretty good. That sucks.

I remember when I first discovered Map My Run. Oh run times. I'm a geography and GIS geek too, so I was in love; still am.

Nicole said...

Yeah, that timing chip did not agree with my ankle. Nearly a week later and it's still sore friction issues.

Gordon: no problem, you have a great blog- good luck on your half & nice legs. :)

Marnee: Dan loves Map My Run! It's definitely helped motivate him.

Great episode, as always! Sorry about the bloody ankle. That's gotta suck!
