The Narragansett Super 5K race course is right by the ocean.

Nik takes a look at what's under the cool-looking castle-like structure seen in the top photo (we never bothered to find out for sure).

This part of the course was nice. The other part, near people's houses, wasn't as much.

Dan hands out Gun Show tickets as he approaches the finish line. Unfortunately, everyone had other plans.


Afterward, they went geocaching in Narragansett, which explains why they're messing around underneath a bridge (hint: the geocache wasn't there anyway).

Dan's new T-shirt matches the color of his iPod Shuffle. Get your own Dan Go Run gear here.

Enjoy!

Stanley looks at all the sights on the way in to Boston.

The Back Bay is very posh, but people still don't know how to shovel their confounded sidewalks.

So we went running in Boston Common instead, which was still covered with snow but at least a little easier to manage.

The pups were very well behaved.

Even by the Statehouse

For a while, Stanley didn't realize the "Make Way For Ducklings" ducklings were fake, and was pointing at them until he got his mouth on the mother duck.

Afterward, we all went home very tired and sore. The end.

Except for this. Myrna's sporting her "Dan Go Run!" T-shirt.
