Episode 65

In the woods, no one can hear 4 Feet Running scream! Not even when they're slowly being bitten to death. This week:

- Even though last time Nik and Dan said they hate the woods, they try it anyway at Massasoit State Park in Taunton, Mass.

- They immediately regret not having brought bug spray

- Quote of the week #1: "So far no murderers. We've been walking for three minutes."

- Quote of the week #2: "You see one tree, you've seen em all."

- Stanley the pointer dog goes for a dip and tries to free himself from his leash

- Dan tries speedwork, strength training (again), and is awful at trail running

- Nik has trouble with the humidity, keeping her blood sugar regulated, and is a mosquito magnet

- Picture the Raiders of the Lost Ark tarantula scene but with mosquitos

- Drinking game: take a shot every time Nik or Dan says: "I HATE THIS!" or "I HATE THE WOODS!" or "I DON'T LIKE THE WOODS!"

- They eventually find a road and run on that instead -- hooray!

- They read email from some great listeners

Photos and links and other good stuff coming soon!

I know I shouldn't be laughing but, when you announced that neither of you had bug spray during this time of the year with the wet spring/summer we had, I knew this was going to be an epic fail.

IMHO stay out of all woods during the summer. Return when it's well into fall for some of the greatest running conditions you will find locally. My friends and I ride there all thru fall, winter and spring until it's safe to hit the roads again on a road bike.

As for where to go, you need to take the exit off of 24 heading to the Galleria, If you ever go back I can get you directions to the main entrance. You'll see hikers, families, mountain bikers, runners, etc etc. I could even map out a really nice and challenging 7 mile loop that I'm sure you'd enjoy.

enjoy and happy training.
