Celebrate 2 whole years of 4 Feet Running with Nik and Dan! This week:

- Updates on Nik's knees and ankles, and why she's not using Uncle Higgy anymore

- Dan remembers his running beginnings and first milestones - He also runs into a telephone pole

- They get to see actual cows (sorry, they forgot to take the camera), and they'll tell you where in Fall River the buffalo roam and the pigeons race

Episode 63

Reactions: 

It's a family fun-day road race on the 4th of July with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Meet Dan's mom, who is walking her first-ever road race: the Mattapoisett 5-mile Road Race

- Dan's mom is kind of shy about talking into the mike

- Special guest appearances by John from the Poi and his friend Martin, a former marathoner and current cranberry engineer

- Nik tries to overcome a string of lousy runs, Dan's mom gets tips for a first-time road-racer, and Dan keeps his mom company

- Two stop-lights, a post office, and a lot of friendly people: that's Mattapoisett

- They set up another giveaway in the 4 Feet Running Book Club: Running and Being by Dr. George Sheehan -- listen to find out when!

- Nik realizes one meal of pancakes a day is her limit -- not two

- Dan decides to don the luchador mask for a special 5K road race in October (and possibly a cape)

- Tons of fantastic email from wonderful listeners

Dan gives his mom a helpful tip before the race: "Walk long and taper..."

Dan's two favorite ladies hang out before the start of the road race.

John from the Poi smoked his last year's time at the road race -- a hell of an improvement in just a year.

From listener Travis, a great bunch of runners who are even more fierce inside the squared circle. Our favorite part? Check out the T-shirt on the guy at bottom left. Thanks for sharing, Travis!

Listener Beatnik Bandit is all gory after a bad fall and a couple of overenthusiastic purple-nerples. Thanks, BB!

Can you see any mountain lions or bears in this? I hope not. Stay safe, Funderson!

A great view of Petco Park by listener Eric -- much better view than we got on the ground. Thanks so much!

Sweet Daddy D's tattoo of Casey's paw -- fantastic!
