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.

Another fantastic podcast you guys. I'm a fairly new listener, and I'm getting caught up on your older podcasts as well as enjoying the new ones. Listening to you guys on my commute is one of the highlights of my day.

Nik, I know that this one didn't go the way you wanted it to, but kudos to you for gutting it out. I think if your training had not been sidelined by injury, you would have had a PR for sure.

Dan, congratulations on your Half. I'm listening to your Salem podcast right now, and I'm amazed at the improvements you've made. Well done. The Mexican wrestling mask is mint by the way.

Take care guys. Keep up the good work.

Jake aka mainerunnerguy.

Just listened to the two podcasts on your marathon Nik. What a cliff hanger! just had to run a bit longer so I could immeadiately hear episode 62 so as to hear whether you set a pr. Marathon races are so unpredictable even if you think you have covered every possible thing that may go wrong . Look at Paula Radcliffe the current world record holder there are many you tube videos highlighting what can wrong even for the elite.

Great achievement on completion of San Diego in a time many would envy and three cheers to the bag man Dan!
