Episode 66


It's a do-over, reboot, renewed 4 Feet Running! After a little delay, they're ready to run again. This week:

- Nik and Dan explain where the hell the show has been for a month

- They're in an '80s mood for some reason

- Dan falls into a brief but crippling funk due to the heat, but finds redoing his schedule has improved his mojo

- Nik gets permission from famous listener Petra to revamp her schedule, too

- More grossness: bedbug nests, street trash, plus learn about the fascinating and repulsive life cycle of the hookworm

- Nik's knee issues are much improved thanks to forefoot running, and Dan gives her an elbow in the buttcheek

- They talk about the barefoot running craze and why they're skeptical of some of the more out-there magical claims

- Nik orders and tries out a pair of Nike Frees to help make her more speedy, though they make her toes feel like they've been working out

- Dan doesn't like the Frees because contrary to the name, they cost money

- They read lots of great feedback from listeners

- Special phone call from Hollywood Actor and runner Edward Norton, probably
