Move…that…oh, never mind.

Plus another food-related Listener Feedback, our sappiest Songs to Run To ever, and Tony has to get something off his chest in a very special True Gomer Confessions.  Oh, and we freak out a little about getting a mention on the #2 podcast on iTunes, Stuff You Should Know!

    What a killer week… waiting for the big reveal! I think it’s a good idea for Gomer 2 to head to Florida for the marathon. Maybe my family can come out to cheer you guys on… we’re all big gomer fans.

    And the Disney talk reminded me of an idea for a future gomer season… you guys should do the Goofy Challenge. A half marathon one day, followed by a full marathon the next day. oooooh.

    15 Step!!! YES! Also, Everything in its Right Place for an early morning run is absolutely perfect.

    As far as grilling, There are several delicious vegetables that you can grill as a main course. Check out the veggie sections in the Weber books, they have great recipes for grilled stuffed tomatoes, grilled stuffed peppers, portabello mushrooms, eggplant, pizza, etc. I was afraid I’d miss grilling when I gave up meat, but I grill just as much as I used to.

    Are you guys sure the Sarasota Marathon is going to happen? I live in Sarasota and rumor has it that they will only be doing the half-marathon this year. The 2010 website is not even up yet. I am very interested to find out whether it will happen.

    Don’t sweat it guys, you made the smart choice. I was training with a friend for the Portland Marathon and kept hitting a wall at 15 miles for our 20 mile practices. I had to postpone until this May and he went on to complete Portland in 3:30! I was bummed, but glad I listened to my body.

    I definitely think you both did the right thing in moving the marathon back. Better to take a little more time than to rush into something and get injured. Believe me, I know from experience- nursing a foot with tendonitis now (for the second time). The first time I had to go to physical therapy and take 2 months off running. I’ve learned from my mistake- taking a few weeks off and doing some aqua running this time- at first sign of pain, instead of waiting till it is really bad. Have a great week of running!

    so while running today (week 1 back at it) i was pondering how it is that my running speed seems to be even SLOWER than my walking speed. i am a pretty fast walker. i was too embarrassed to run past people, even the people walking, imagining they’d be laughing at the fat lady trying to run. i kept stopping to walk behind them whenever i encountered anyone on the trail. then i heard one of your voices in my head (not sure which one) saying, “well, why don’t you WALK past them then?” and that is exactly what i did. i walked those people into the ground. and then i ran all the way to the end and got a good solid end to my 2 mile run (i even passed some kids running!) Haha!
