4 Feet Running - Ep. 49

Which do you want first, the bad news or the good news? 4 Feet Running has both this week:

- Nik and Dan go for a 4.5-miler through their neighborhood

- They have the best running geek week ever, with Runner+ back, a newish Garmin, and challenges on Buckeye Outdoors

- They have a terrible geek week also, as Nik's MacBook Pro lapses into a coma

- Nik and Dan check out treadmills and do really, really long intervals through stores across southern New England

- Reading treadmill reviews is very confusing, but they make the best of it

- Nik and Dan have some goals in mind they'll work toward with or without a hamster wheel

- They get feedback from some very nice people

4 Feet Running - Ep. 48

Santa Claus is stuck in a glass cage with 4 Feet Running! This week:

- Nik, Dan, and listener John run the Edaville Rail Run 5-miler trail run in Carver, Mass.

- Coming along for the ride are John's neighbor Jack, his daughter Amy, and Dan's work friend Jon -- so that's 3 Johns for the price of 1 right there

- Edaville Railroad has a whole Christmas display going, complete with creepy Santa dioramas and transgendered elves

- Nik's Garmin Forerunner 405 goes bye-bye

- They also meet an older lady who's all banged up but who still runs the 5-miler

- Dan starves his way across 5 hard miles, Nik's glucose levels plummet, but everyone else doing the race has a phenomenal time

- Listeners share their Garmin woes

- More Stanley the pointer dog hogging all the attention at the end

- They get email and phone calls from very nice people
