Episode 52


Get ready to freeze your behind off with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Nik and Dan go for a staggeringly cold 3-miler in Providence (the ritzy part, not the crappy part)

- They discuss Yak Traks, which is appropriate because there's thick ice and snow everywhere

- Dan's got two great new coaches, but his trick knee is acting up again

- Nik does the Core Performance technique but still can't remember the guy's last name

- They wonder why there are multiple words for "stretching" in the fitness world

- Special Guest Star: Lewis from Starbucks, when Nik and Dan warm up with a nice hot mocha

- They take the plunge and actually set up Buckeye Outdoors accounts ... for their dogs

- Great feedback-o-rama from lots of listeners

See what their route is like when it's not so damn snowy -- just go this way up Blackstone Boulevard, then when you hit Hope Street, turn around and go back:

Dan tries to keep a big smile on his face as he runs in the freezing cold past a cemetery.

You can tell Nik is running in a posh neighborhood because this house has lion statues on the front porch.

These stickers are stuck to the side of a Starbucks drive-thru in Seekonk, Mass., right outside Providence. The bottom sticker is the one Nik and Dan were giggling about, featuring something punching a horse in the mouth with a butterfly on its ass.

This is the photo of the Christmas lights that Michigan Mike, aka Mr. Beefcake, sent to us! Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Nik reads the instruction manual for her Clocky on Christmas morning, which is ready to ruin every morning for her thereafter.

Dan shows off the new fleece running hat and matching green iPod Shuffle he got for Christmas. It clips anywhere!
