Episode 72


It's the final 4 Feet Running! Which actually turns out to be the second-to-last 4 Feet Running. Again. It makes sense when you listen. This episode:

- Nik and Dan talk about why they're ending the show and their plans for the future

- They discuss what they thought would happen when they first started the show years ago

- Nik: "Now you have more time to run. So that means less griping?" Dan: "Not likely"

- They talk about the power of accountability to others, and how that helps

- Special guest appearance by their crazy neighbor who wants QUIET

- Nik has a comeback from her horrible bout of bronchitis and rib pain

- Dan's running plans in 2010 have changed again -- goodbye Hyannis, hello New Jersey

- Good running tip: register early for races now, because it's mental out there

- Science-based self-help with Richard Wiseman, author of "59 Seconds"

- Nik teaches you how to determine your child's personality using 3 marshmallows, and Dan describes how to lose weight using smaller plates

- Dan likes the new Nike Frees that Nik bought him as a special Martin Luther King Day present

- Nik and Dan review their 2009 year in running: more miles, more speed, more improvements

- Nik: "You wouldn't want to be at the top -- where would you go?" Dan: "I'd stick around there for a while"

- They read the results of the 2009 Feet Running Challenge

- Stay tuned for one more episode with just your feedback!

Oh man.... I can't believe you guys are stopping the show. I haven't listened to the latest episode yet, but if it is really the end, I think I may cry.

I'm saving this episode too.

I remember the first time I ever emailed you guys!

4FR has been a great running buddy over the years.

Oh man! It won't be the same not being able to hear your future adventures during my runs. I just want to thank you so much for your entertaining, motivating, and well done podcasts over the years. I wouldn't have had a clue about the wrestling culture in Mexico without them. :) Best of luck to both of you!

Hey Nik and Dan,
I'm so sad to hear that you are leaving podcast land, but I totally understand the need for more time - I can't even keep up with just a blog! Thank you for 72 great podcasts. I've had a great time listening to your running stories, stomach woes, and general banter. It's nice to know that there are other New England runners out there that think running with screws in their shoes is a good thing! Good luck with your future plans. Maybe I'll see you on the road some day!
