Now that you know Anthony’s big news, Part II of Episode 10 brings you some big news from Steven – it has to do with something he doesn’t wear that most people do.  Ok, it’s not as big as Part I, but he gave it a shot. Part 2 is all about True or Faux, [...]

Season 3 : Episode 10, Part 1 – Big

It’s Anthony’s 32nd birthday, but that’s not the Big News.  Steven has been breaking his training run speed goals left and right, but that’s not the Big News either.  And this episode got so long we had to split it into two Big Parts.  But no, THAT’S not even the Big News.  You’ll just have [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 9 – The Value of Failure

The Gomernation is talking, and the Gomers are listening – and discussing.  Join them as they confer about the Nation’s thoughts on podcasts and audiobooks, running in a straight line or in a circle, forward-thinking or being in the now, and dogs.  And even though no one in the nation mentioned Top Chef, it sure [...]

Season 3 : Episode 9 – Gomers Out of Water

Spring has sprung, and change is in the air – including an unusual amount of semi-educated running talk from the unlikeliest of semi-experts:  the Gomers.  What’s happened exactly is unclear, but listen as they blame everything from their gadgets to their training program to actual miles put in – whatever it is, it’s kind of [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 8 – Last Suppers

The Listener Feedback has POURED in these past couple weeks, and the Gomers are lovin it.  Join them as they discuss running, with a tangent here and there:  sports bras and running skirts, bamboo socks and sticks covered with lube, Eagle Scout near-misses and zombie-killing dogs. Our excuse is that since this is a Listerner-Feedback-centric [...]

Season 3 : Episode 8 – The Haunted Treadmill

The Gomers’ training is really kicking into high gear, and they are here to talk about the ups and downs (pun intended) of speedwork:  How hard do I swing my arms?  Did that lady just see me dry-heave?  Am I allowed to faint?  And, most importantly, is this treadmill possessed? Plus the guys debut a [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 7 – Feedback of the Week

Season 3 : Minisode 6 – The Training Schedule

This is as close as the Gomers get to disobeying their wives – a quick Minisode updating the Nation on their new Marathon training schedule even though they’re supposed to be observing radio silence.  Oh well, while they’re at it, why not a little Oscar chat?  Oh hold on, what did they think of the [...]

Season 3 : Episode 6 – Do it with us

It’s the midpoint of the Gomers’ 3rd season, and they have a big midpointy announcement to make about the upcoming Marathon.  But before that, they take a look at their more…ahem…critical reviews, and decide together how to react and, ultimately, respond to them.  Not to worry, though, it’s not all serious work – the guys [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 5 – Be Water

It’s Gomer2′s turn to report on his race, and he’s a little confused about how he feels about this, his third Half Marathon and PR.  Hear as Gomer1 grills him for the details – the ups, downs, and in-betweens.  Did he meet his goal?  Is he feeling good?  Did any mantras work?  Was there enough [...]

Season 3 : Episode 5, Part 2 – One Gomer Does Disney

Long time, no hear!  In Part 2 of Episode 5, Anthony regales us with tales of the Disney World Half Marathon – from starting fireworks to motivational army men to run-ins with running celebrities, this race had it all.  And oh yeah, a pretty sweet PR to start the New Year right. This week’s Monday [...]

Season 3 : Episode 5, Part 1 – The Year of Discipline and Risk

The New Year is still on the minds of the Gomers, and they spend a significant portion of the first part of Episode 5 discussing it.  Including these questions: Should resolutions be vague or specific?  Should you set the bar unreachably high, or comfortably low?  And what is the name of that one lady who [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 4 – Like, Happy New Year, Dude

2011 really snuck up on the Gomers, and they are both realizing that their half-marathons are closer than they thought.  But that doesn’t mean they won’t take the time to do some Christmas in Review (specifically what they GOT for Christmas), discuss New Years’ Resolutions from the Gomernation, and review G1′s upcoming race.  And, you [...]

Now that the Gomers are fully into their 3rd season, guess what?  There’s more distractions, injuries, and weird sicknesses than you can shake a bassoon at.  But that’s not stopping them – in fact, they’ve both been having pretty great weeks – not counting the blood in the urine, of course. Plus all your favorite [...]

Season 3 : Minisode 1 – The Gomer Thanksgiving Challenge

Season 2 : Episode 36 – Journey in Review

Well, it was supposed to be the final episode, but in true Gomer form, things didn’t go as planned.  The guys needed to add ONE MORE episode, coming on Thursday, since they spend more time than they thought they would on what the journey to the marathon has meant to them, how it’s changed them, [...]

Season 2 : Episode 35 – Race in Review

At long last, the Gomers end their radio silence and debrief the marathon in this Super-Sized Part I (of, as it turns out, III!) of the TGRAM season finale.  Spaghetti dinners!  Gomer gift exhanges!  Adrenaline rushes!  Embarrassingly loud nipple-chafing conversations!  Wall hittings!  Underwear-filled Port-O-Johns!  Triumphant finishes!  Exclamation points.  It’s all here folks!

Season 2 : Episode 32 – The Dress Rehearsal

Just like every one of the Gomers’ favorite shows, TGRAM is quickly nearing its end.  In this super-sized, direct-to-tape penultimate episode before the marathon (yeah, yeah, we got off on the timing a little bit these past couple weeks), the Gomers process their longest run yet, the dreaded 20-miler.  Good run/Bad run, anyone?  Oh yeah, [...]

Season 2 : Two Gomers Special 3 – Two Gomers Get Ready

It’s the third, and final, Two Gomers Special: Two Gomers Get Ready! The guys are pulling out all the stops to prepare themselves for the (fast) approaching Marathon, including harkening back to the tiny vestiges of running experience both had as young lads.  And seriously, we’re talking tiny vestiges here. But it’s enough to guide [...]

Season 2 : Episode 31 – Walk-Run-Walk

It’s a shorter episode this week after the beast that was 30, and in preparation for the third special, but it’s still packed full of goodness – just like a Chicago style pizza.  Gomer2 tried Jeff Galloway’s Run-Walk-Run for the first time, while Gomer1 tells his tale of a “dress rehearsal run” gone awry.  Oh [...]

Season 2 : Episode 30 – That’s Four More Than a Marathon

30 Episodes – that’s a milestone for the Gomers, and in this episode, they examine the significance of making it 14 episodes beyond what they’d originally planned.  There’s Back to the Future talk, discussion about how short runs are easier than long ones, a Biggest Loser update, bad news about Steven’s DVR, and yes, at [...]

Season 2 : Episode 29 – That Hurt More

Both Gomers pulled out their LSRs this week (that stands for Long Slow Runs, emphasis on the SLOW), Gomer2 just barely.  However, a new tactic has arisen that helped him get through the bonk – and no, it’s not imagining that he’s being chased by giant worms. Plus: Middle School dance awkwardnesses, birthday re-giftings, coffee [...]

Season 2 : Episode 28 – iPlod

Need a week off from running, whether you want it or not?  Amidst all the iPad chat, Gomer1 has the tip just for you this week on the podcast!  Hint – it has to do with summer footwear. Gomer2 is still on his road to recovery, and he has a big, albeit slow, week to [...]

Season 2 : Episode 27 – Food Run

Food is all over this week’s episode, as the Gomers make each other hungry by discussing the fast food they can’t eat, the diets they’re off and on, the sandwiches they can fit in their pockets, the food revolutions they wish they could be a part of, the culinary podcasts they wish they’d thought of, [...]

Season 2 : Episode 26 – Just the Way I’m Feeling

Spring isn’t the only thing sprung on this episode of the Two Gomers, especially when a very special guest shows up in the Runner’s Corner.  Also, Gomer1 sets a PR in a race while Gomer2 tries to figure out how he feels about that.  How sensi!  Plus, a new fast food challenge for April, our [...]

This week, join the guys as they do their best to get “there,” whatever “there” means.  Gomer1 re-inserts himself back into the training schedule, and Gomer2 heads to warmer climates for some recovery training, which includes catching a glimpse of the weirdest person he’s ever seen while on a run.  Also, some classic half-marathon memories, [...]

Season 2 : Episode 24 – Getting Close to Getting There

Good news:  Steven just ran his first mile since the accident.  Sure, it’s a baby step, but it’s a BIG baby step. What, you didn’t see that movie?  Weird. Also:  Thrilling Daylight Savings Time discussions, Wii-related confessions, senior song confusions, and car talk, just like them guys on the NPR!  Plus all the regular stuff: [...]

Season 2 : Episode 23 – This IS a running podcast, right?

With Gomer2 still laid up in bed and Gomer1 recovering from the Half Marathon, it’s a slow running week.  But you know better than to think they wouldn’t come up with PLENTY to talk about right?  It’s what you’d expect:  a weird mix of Oscar Chat, food tangents, weight updates, recovery observations, and new Spring [...]

Season 2 : Episode 22 – A Little Bit of Normalcy (or: Move That Bus take three)

Who thinks it’s a good idea for Gomer2 to take his meds right before recording, raise your hands.  You might want to listen to this episode before you decide.  The Gomers are back, baby, and doing their best to bring a little bit of normalcy back to the GomerNation.  So expect a lot of the [...]

Season 2 : Gomer Rewind 3 – Plus Post-accident and Half Marathon Reports!

Gomer2 is still mostly bed-ridden in the aftermath of the big car accident, so the guys thought this would be the perfect time for their third Gomer Rewind.  Join the guys as they take a look back at one of their favorite episodes from the first season, the one recorded one day before their first [...]

Season 2 : Episode 21 – One Gomer Gets Hit By A Smart Car

The title explains it all, right? This past week Steven got hit by a car while on a run in the fair city of Denver, and he is able to sit up long enough to record a shorter episode so the Gomernation knows the details. And, more importantly, so they know he’s alright. The good [...]

Season 2 : Episode 20 – Celebs

In a miraculous turn of events, BOTH Gomers had a good week this week, and they can’t wait to talk about it.  Join them as they discuss being in control of their runs, who shouldn’t win the Oscar for best picture, eating while traveling, and the effect of weight-loss on cold temperature tolerance.  And oh [...]

Season 2 : Episode 19 – Gomer Regrets

Humble pie, anyone?  The Gomers have a big slice they’d be willing to share.  The good news is, most of the Gomernation has forgiven the guys for their insensitivity last week, and after an initial apology from their future selves, they’re ready to move on.  Both of them ran a staggering 16 miles in a [...]

Season 2 : Episode 18 – Recover, Exclamation Point

It was a lighter week for the Gomers, and they have a lot to say about it – most of it good.  With the marathon coming up fast, it’s a nice thing to have a good week once in a while!  And since they had a little time to breathe, the guys used the time [...]

Season 2 : Episode 17 – Good Run, Bad Run

“You’re only one run away from a good run.”  That’s Gomer1′s theory, and Gomer2 hopes it’s true, because it was brutal for him this week.  But it makes for good podcast material, right?  Join the guys as they process what it means when one of them has a good week and the other, well, DOESN’T. [...]

Season 2 : Episode 16 – Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Cold Pizza

It’s the one-year anniversary of the Gomers’ Half Marathon, and they celebrate by – how else? – running 13 miles without stopping.

It’s a new year, and the Gomers are trying to get back into the swing of things after a long holiday season – with mixed results.  Join them as they talk about their annual training run together, getting back on the bandwagon after travel and Christmas, and running in the single digits, through exotic cities, [...]

Season 2 : Two Gomers Special 2 – Two Gomers Get Resolute

It’s the second Two Gomers Special: Two Gomers Get Resolute!  The guys are visited by three ghosts: Past, Present, and Future…well, not really, but they talk about those things in relation to their running journey.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Season 2 : Episode 10 – The Re-reveal

Ok, this time it’s final.  The Gomers have decided on a new marathon, AGAIN, and it’s a good one.  Join them as they spend the next 20 weeks praying that the thing doesn’t get cancelled.  But hey, if it does, that means more episodes, right?  Maybe this is the podcast that will never end… And [...]

Season 2 : Episode 9 – Jumping the Gun

It’s like when Anthony started that one race five minutes late, only the opposite.  Seems like the Gomers spoke too soon on their marathon choice, and recorded two entire podcasts before they realized it.  Sounds like a job for Future Anthony!  And with the first appearance of Future Steven, they do their best to remedy [...]

Season 2 : Episode 8 – The Reveal

Time’s up, and that means the Gomers have a decision to make.  After four weeks of discussing, running, doubting, and shingling, what will they decide to do about the big marathon?  The suspense is killing you, right?  You’ll have to check out the Runner’s Corner for the big reveal!

Season 2 : Episode 5 – Shingle Me This

This week is all about injury and sickness – so it should be a fun one!  Listen in as the Gomers discuss sprains, sores, aches, pains, and boils.

Season 2 : Episode 3 – A Tale of Two Races

Both Gomers ran races last week, and they have a lot to say on the subject…and it probably won’t surprise you that Anthony started a full 5 minutes after everyone else did at his 5k, and that Steven is still aching from his trail race, an entire week later. Oh well, they are Gomers after [...]
