Enjoy!

Nik puts on her game face for the Cox Providence Marathon, knowing it will put her over the top for the Another Runner Easy 100 Mile Challenge.

Dan's just happy to run a race with a timing chip.

Nik wears her RISD hat to represent every artist, everywhere, who's ever not run, at all.

It was pouring rain in downtown Providence, but luckily there was no thunder or lightning as forecast.

It's a good crowd at the finish line on Weybossett Street.

Nik gets across the finish line in great time.

Why is this person smiling? Because she's got a free Gatorade. In about five minutes, she won't be smiling anymore as she realizes she's got horrible, bleeding friction burns on her thighs.

Dan spots the cameraman from Capstone, and is not particularly happy about it.

Thanks to Stuart from Australia, who spotted this kangaroo on a recent run!

He also shot a picture of this giant mouse.


Nik emerges from her conference into the pouring rain, where Dan is waiting with soaking wet jeans.

Clive Owen (center) chats with some people who get paid significantly less than he does, on the set of "Duplicity."

Here, Clive prepares for his pivotal "talking on the cell phone while walking down the street" scene.

And here's a movie Nik and Dan shot of them watching Clive at work.
