Nik is wiped out from holding the humongous Rock 'N' Roll Marathon medal.

She spent much of the first day of the vacation doing this in public places.

Later on, they went to the Museum of Man, which has a room celebrating the achievements of humankind -- among them, the Forerunner 405.

San Diego's a really nice spot. It's hard to fit it all in one picture.

Dan went all the way to San Diego and all he got was this lousy luchador mask...

Here's what Sweet Daddy D's dog Casey thinks of 2009 so far.

Episode 61


San Diego -- drink it in with 4 Feet Running! It always goes down smooth. This Part 1 of a 2-part San Diego extravamarathaganza! This week:

- Nik runs her fifth 26.2-miler, the San Diego Rock 'N' Roll Marathon

- Nik and Dan take a little pre-race jaunt around downtown San Diego, where they do some jogging -- or maybe it's "yogging," it may be a soft J

- Where's all the good weather at? And how'd Dan's beard get so gray?

- They stay at a "haunted" hotel, and as predicted they never hear or see anything

- They run by Petco Park and they don't see or hear anything there, either

- Nik and Dan see tens of thousands of people on race day in Balboa Park, including famous running bloggers Maddy (Maddy Runs) and Alisa (Ambitious Aspirations)

- Nik never ends up making the switch to Pacific time -- it's quite amazing, actually

- But she DOES make the switch to Ininji toe-socks, which feel terrific with sandals

- A little corral-side chit-chat with Nik, Alisa and Maddy about tea, toenails, and "emergency" iPod playlists

- Experience the music of the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon as Nik runs by

- And stay tuned for the next episode where we meet Nik out the race chute, get her race report, and more!

In Nik's San Diego marathon swag bag? A box of macaroni and cheese. Really. (No, we had to throw it out)

Nik waits in line early on race day at Balboa Park.

She's got her race bib safety-pinned to her cute little Under Armour running skirt.

One of the many "rock and roll" bands playing at the San Diego Rock 'N' Roll Marathon.

There were quite a few people dressed in weird costumes running the race...

...and some that weren't dressed at all. This guy ran the race painted to look like a victim from the Saw movies, apparently.
