Season 2 : Episode 14 – Two Gomers Gomering, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Here it is, the final of three in this year’s series of Christmas episodes.  It’s sad, but the Gomers press on, packing in every tiny Christmas-related tidbit they can in between updating the Gomernation on how the marathon-training is going.  Which is, incidentally, pretty well.

Join the Gomers as they relate tales of running both in the snow and 80 degree weather, watching classic Christmas movies, and responding to that many-layered question:  “Why are you running a marathon?  You must be crazy!”

Well, maybe they are, but just wait till you hear their dissertations on the links between Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation, and The Nutcracker and Home Alone.  THEN tell them they’re crazy.

This week’s Survey:  What are your New Years Resolutions?  And don’t forget, the Christmas Gomer Rewind is next week, followed by the second Gomer Special:  Two Gomers Get Resolute.  Happy Christmas, and Happy Running!

Season 2 : Episode 13 – Dashing through the snow (or not)

The Gomers are really getting into the Christmas spirit now, with more discussions about food, music, and movies both classic (White Christmas) and kind of a stretch (The Godfather).  Oh, and they ran last week, too.  Kind of.  Winter has decended upon gomer2, and gomer1 does his best to keep him motivated, even though all Steven’s doing is sitting around inside while the snow dumps outside, watching The Biggest Loser finale and eating chips.

Believe it, fat Danny.
Believe it, fat Danny.

They won’t let it get them down, though.  Not with all the regular features to get to, like Week in Review, two new Songs to Run To, the Christmas Corner, Listener Feedback, an all-new Monday Survey…and a True Gomer Confession that’s kind of a game-changer.  Happy Holidays, and Happy Running!

Season 2 : Episode 12 – Run Run Rudolph

It’s the first of three Christmas Episodes, and the Gomers couldn’t be more excited. But they’ve also got a lot of catching up to do – both ran Turkey Trots over Thanksgiving, and Anthony ran ANOTHER race after that. That’s right, three races total in one week. All in the name of being able to eat whatever the heck they wanted.

Add a Double Double to that, and its the perfect meal.
Add a Double Double to that, and it’s the perfect meal.

All the regular fixins (Week in Review, Listener Feedback, Eat and Run, Songs to Run To, Monday Survey) and something special thrown in (Christmas Corner) make for an episode that will get you into the holiday spirit, guaranteed.

This week’s survey:  We’re trying to assemble the Ultimate Runner’s Christmas List. What are you asking for this Christmas to help you in your running endeavors? The Gomers wanna know!

Happy (Christmas) Running!
