Lose 20 in 2020: Episode 5 – Lent Us Your Ears

Steven is in his hot car in a Joanne’s Craft Store parking lot, but the guys wanted to get an episode out on day one of Challenge 2 of Lose 20 in 2020: Give up something fattening for 40 days – so they are recording anyway. Plus, the resolution of the “Fam’s Away” cliffhanger, and a chain restaurant rant. Happy Lenting!

Lose 20 In 2020: Episode 4 – Weighing In

Anthony and Steven start by talking about how they’ll weigh in…and before you know it, they’re weighing in! Find out how the guys are doing so far, how they plan on reporting their progress to one another and the Nation, and how many pounds “knowledge” is.

Don’t forget about this month’s new challenge, starting on Wednesday: Give up something unhealthy (read: fattening) for 40 days. Feel free to let us know what that is so we can all keep one another accountable!

Lose 20 In 2020: Episode 3 – When The Fam’s Away

Anthony’s family is gone for the week – how is it affecting his Lose 20 in 2020 journey? Steven is letting the confessions he made last episode sink in – but are they causing any real change?

Don’t forget about this month’s first challenge: Keep track of what you’re eating. Write things down, take pictures, or use the Lose It! app on your phone. Change starts with awareness, and we want to become better aware of what we’re eating. New challenge coming in March!

Lose 20 In 2020: Episode 2 – The Food Confessional

Anthony and Steven have learned so many terrible things about themselves from keeping track of what they eat so far, they couldn’t wait to tell you all about them. So get ready for a barrage of food confessions, revelations, and rude awakenings. It’ll be fun!

Don’t forget about this month’s first challenge: Keep track of what you’re eating. Write things down, take pictures, or use the Lose It! app on your phone. Change starts with awareness, and we want to become better aware of what we’re eating.

In this fourth and final episode, the guys listen back to clips (curated by the GomerNation) chronicling their friendship, which is the real reason the podcast exists. From reminiscing about when they first became friends (picture below, can you spot them?), all the way to Season 7 when the podcast (and the friendship??) almost ended.

Also, they review their Turkey Trots, Steven goes on a mini-tirade that ends with some introspection, and Anthony has an epiphany.

Season 8 – Off-Season Episode 4: Treadmill or Dreadmill?

The big news this week is that Anthony purchased three items to help him as he begins his training for the upcoming Marathon, and they are helping him a lot, all in different ways. One of these items is one they’ve been talking about since the first season…and a Gomer now owns one!

The guys also talk about what’s possible and what’s not, how to make a Total Recall smoothie, the only reason to have cable, and Seinfeld’s germaphobia. Remember, if you have suggestions for our upcoming, 10th Anniversary Best-Of Specials, please tell us about your favorite moment on the website, our Facebook page, or send us an email at twogomers@gmail.com.

Season 8 – Off-Season Episode 3: Half Marathons, Movies, and Midlife

As the Two Gomers’ 10th Anniversary approaches, they are putting out a couple episodes to catch the Nation – and one another – up on what’s happening in their lives, their running, and their thoughts on various pop-culture-related things that have nothing to do with anything but everyone is asking them about.

This week Steven gives a review of the first long distance race he’s run since the Marathon last January, and all that it did to him, inside and out. Also, we review the summer movies, or at least the ones we saw. And we talk about our aversions to getting massages for about 5 minutes too long.

Look for another episode next week! And if you’d like to help us make our 10th Anniversary episode great, we need help collecting best-of clips! Let us know your favorite moments on Facebook or by email (with ep number and timestamp), and please email us (twogomers@gmail.com) if you’re willing to help us locate and isolate clips as well! Happy Running!

2018 “Spring” Special 2: Two Gomers Get Nostalgic…plus an extended conversation!

Plus a TON of fun stuff along the way. It’s a really great one with a unique twist – it’s all recorded while we were together and outside, in the shadows of the Capital building in Madison! We can’t wait for you to hear it.

The first half of our #Sub5By40 season is in the bag! Join the guys as they spend the bulk of this episode recapping a rare treat to end the season and celebrate Steven’s 40th – an entire weekend together. Spoiler: they ate a lot. French toast, Chinese food, pizza…and the frog. Plus, Jurassic Park Chaaaaaat!

Also, you’ll get an update on why Steven hasn’t run for the past two weeks (it’s not great), and hear about Anthony’s 15 minutes of fame as he is mentioned (ok, more than mentioned) in a powerful sermon at his church in Atalanta. After you listen to this finale episode, check out the sermon link below – the set-up to Anthony’s part starts at the 44 minute mark. We know you’ll love it!

The Gomers told you we would be back for their mid-season finale, and here the are! And, as per usual, the guys had so much to talk about that the finale became two parts!

Here, in Part I, Steven and Anthony share final thoughts on the big race. Did the increased training work? How intense was the FOMO? Plus, a tip from Jessica that should leave everyone smiling.

Part II, in which we discuss the big season-ending, 40-year-celebrating, Jurassic-Park-viewing, frog-eating GomerWeekend, is coming soon! Happy Listening, and Happy Running!

Season 8: Episode 8 – The Sub-5 Marathon in Review

Well, the big news is that WEEEEEE did it!

After only 8 years, Steven finally accomplished the goal of a Sub-5 hour marathon, and Anthony was there to see it. Join them as they talk through the race from before the start (“What’s your go-to channel at a hotel?”) to after the finish (“It’s the chocolate milk that’s really making me feel like puking right now.”) and everything in between (“I thought I was going down, and if I did, I wasn’t going to be getting back up”).

Also, get ready for the most tangents per episode maybe ever, culminating in a conversation that bounces between Carrie Fischer’s screenwriting chops, Kevin Kline’s ownership of a running business, and Rob Lowe’s sweaty saxophone skills (and sometime all those things at once). It’s an instant classic you won’t want to miss!

We’ll be back with mid-season finale or two, not to worry. Happy Listening, and Happy Running!

With Christmas and New Year’s behind them, the Gomers look to what’s next – Steven’s big race! This Sunday, January 14th 2018, Gomer2 will attempt to cross THE bucket list item off his list: The Sub-5 Marathon!

The guys use the bulk of this episode to check in to see how Steven is feeling pre-race, and they do so by using comments and encouragements from the GomerNation. They also talk deeply about comparison in friendship and life, not letting FOMO ruin relationships, Kickboxing, and, of course, Total Recall.

If you want to see live updates of Steven’s progress during his race, make sure you are following him on Twitter – his user name is gomer2. He will post a Runkeeper Live link when he starts his race, and you’ll be able to see him in real time!

Season 8: Episode 4 – Gomers’ Favorite Thiiiiiiiings

Here it is, our final of three Christmas episodes, and it’s a doozy!

We talk long runs, snow runs, code-browns and foam rollers. We do a live-to-tape Gomer Gift Exchange with our families in the room that may or may not be comprehendible. We read thoughts from the GomerNation about The Last Jedi and our own podcast. And a ton of fun stuff along the way!

But the crux of this episode is Gomers’ Favorite Things, where go a bit deeper than we usually do, or maybe ever have! We thought a Christmas episode was the time to release something like this, so here you go!

Happy Holidays and Happy Running!

Season 8: Bonus Episode – Two Gomers Talk (and talk) About The Last Jedi

We just couldn’t wait – it’s the morning after seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we just had to talk about it. Hope you enjoy this super-sized bonus episode!

Luke sez: Spoiler Alert! Like, the Gomers talk about everything you wouldn’t want spoiled. So if you’ve seen the movie, enjoy! If not, you should probably wait. Happy Listening!

Season 8: Episode 3 – Dashing Through the (Atlanta) Snow

The tables have turned as Anthony gets in a snow run before Steven this year! Join us in this, the second of three Christmas Specials of 2017, as the guys talk about new Christmas Classics, running distances no man or woman should ever run and how that feels like being pregnant, life-altering podcasts, top Movies and TV from the past year, the value of touching your waist, and the GomerNation’s Holiday Wishlists!

Oh yeah, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi predictions. Force ghosts anyone?

Happy Holidays, Happy Last Jedi-ing, and Happy Running!

 

Season 8: Episode 2 – Christmas Movie Taxonomy

It’s an annual tradition: The Two Gomers Christmas Specials!

In this, the first of three specials, the Gomers give updates on their Turkey Trots, seeing a modern Christmas classic in the theater, Guiness World Record-breaking races, teenage voice-drops, Christmas Movie Taxonomies, the first third of Total Recall, and Gomer Favorite THIIIIIIIINGS!

Have a great week, Happy Holidays, and Happy Running!

Season 8: Episode 1 – #Sub5by40

The boys are back! Can we still call them boys, if they are nearing 40? Probably not. Regardless, the Gomers are here for their eighth and final (?) season, and spend most of this pilot episode laying out their new challenge, how this season is different than others, and some of their hopes and fears concerning their upcoming marathons(!).

Plus, all the tangential fun you’ve grown to love/tolerate! Hot takes on disaster movies, Ski-lift make-out sessions, Memes, and whether or not we’ve seen Total Recall (or just REMEMBER that we’ve seen it).

And the long awaited, completely ill-informed recording of the guys watching last month’s The Last Jedi Trailer starring Chewie’s CGI eyes and some foxes from Narnia! And porgs.

So fun to be back! Happy running!

 

2017 Spring Episode – What’s Up With the Gomers?

The Gomers come out of radio silence for the following important reasons:

1. Anthony has some big news to share.

2. Steven has a race he wants to run before he gets old.

3. The guys watched the Last Jedi trailer and have very outdated thoughts on it.

4. They also just kinda wanted to record.

Hope you enjoy, happy running!

2017 New Years’ Special 2 – Anthony’s OneWord

Here, in the second New Year’s Special of 2017, the guys tackle Anthony’s OneWord.  The also tackle some new entrées at their neighborhood fast food joints.  Plus more Listener Feedback, updates on what’s next with the podcast, and the golden age of CGI.

Farewell until July!  Unless The Last Jedi trailer comes out, then you’ll probably hear from us sooner. 🙂  Happy Running!

2017 New Years’ Special 1 – Steven’s OneWord

We know, it’s a little late, but what’s that saying?  Better late…anyway.  The guys return for their first of two New Years’ specials.  There is more personal chat as they kick off 2017, and Steven shares his OneWord.  Also, cruise ship foibles, political ponderings (!), and The Last Jedi predictions.

Never Forget

Happy Listening, Happy Running, and we’ll be back in a couple days with Anthony’s word!

 

 

2016 Christmas Special 3 – Gomer Did You Know?

Because they went unsurprisingly long in their Rogue One chat last episode, you get a THIRD Christmas Special!  There is some more Rogue One chat too.

But mostly they guys present their annual holiday tradition: Gomers’ Favorite THIIIIIIIIINGS!  Some are technical, come are conceptual, some are spiritual, and one of them is a toaster.

Plus, your holiday wish lists, a deep dive into that the score of one of our favorite Christmas movies, and the Gomers get theological.  See you next time, in the New Years special!  Happy Holidays, and Happy Running!

2016 Christmas Special 2 – And A Star Wars Story in a Pear Tree

In their fastest turnaround ever, the guys recorded this, the second Christmas special for 2016, a mere 8 hours after they saw Rogue One.  And that’s the main thrust of this episode: their thoughts, theories, and gut reactions to the first standalone Star Wars movie.

Plus some truly cutting edge plot-hole discussions on Home Alone II and The Santa Clause, and plenty of Christmas chat, because Gomers.  Happy Christmas, and Happy Running!

2016 Christmas Special 1 – Not Just for Decoration

After their longest hiatus ever, the guys are back for this, the first of their 2016 Christmas Specials!

They’ll talk, in detail, about everything that’s happened since the summer.  Like, remember the Olympics?  That happened during that time, they are pretty sure.  Then they’ll review their Turkey Trots from Thanksgiving morning, marveling at how different they were…and how Steven maybe should have found someplace better to sleep.  Also, some TV and Movie Chat, focusing on millennials, manipulative dramas, and linguisticly-charged, purposefully-paced, coffee-stained alien movies.

They end with some great feedback from our thankful listeners!  Happy Christmastime, and Happy Running!

 

Season 7: Episode 17 – Conquer the Capital Race In Review: Half Marathon

Ok, we get it, it’s been a long time coming!  But after 7 weeks, the guys finally got an hour to sit down and talk through the second part of their big race, the Conquer the Capital!  In this, the second part of the season finale episodes, they guys talk about running longer than they have in a long time, tacking the temps and humidity, emotional finishes, and epic combacks.  Also a True Gomer Confession from Gomer 2 ABOUT Gomer 1, and some clues about when the Series Finale may (or may not) come.

Can’t say thank you enough for being on this crazy journey with us, this and every season. Happy Listening, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 15 – One Day to the Race

Click here to donate and download the Season 7 specials!

The Conquer the Capital race is TOMORROW, and the guys have a lot of questions for one another about it – and you get a front seat as they search for the answers.  When will they go to the expo?  Will they run together?  How will they survive the heat and hills?  Are their wives mad at them?  Will they have surprise guests?  And maybe most important:  Who are they wearing?

Perhaps this classic ensemble?

It’s been a crazy season up this point!  How will it end? Thanks for all your support, Nation, and if you haven’t donated and downloaded our specials, now’s the perfect time on our website or FB page!  Happy Running, see you after the race!

Season 7: Episode 14 – LaCroixntroversy (or: Gomers v. Batman v. Superman)

Steven’s most horrid run. Anthony’s growing weekly mileage.  Near code-browns, hill repeats and numb faces.  Star stuck members of the Gomernation. West Wing Gomer quotes.  La Croix pronunciations.  And quite possibly our most insane movie review ever.

Specials drop NEXT week, and they are coming out pretty special indeed.  Have a great week, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 13 – Flat Hills

As the Conquer the Capital race fast approaches, the guys catch you up with their latest training –  including hills, log runs in bad weather, and bricks.  Plus, they debate which is worse – running in the freezing rain or 90 degree humidity.  And they also chat about the virtues of a good distracting podcast, their lasting LaCroix legacy, steak, the increasingly controversial question of who is the favorite Gomer, and lasertag.

Have a great week, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 12 – Back to the Basics

After a strange month of long conversations, big decisions, and a detour through A Star Wars Story, the guys are back to what started it all: running.  Join the Gomers as they talk about their weeks in review including hills, bricks, dry heaves, long mileage, races…and soreness.  And what’s this?  Could it be Gomer’s Tips?  And say WHAT?! Songs to Run To?  The guys are really taking this thing seriously!  Don’t worry, though, they are still stuck in the 80s in all the right ways.

A favorite on Anthony’s playlist.

Also, stick around for some responses to the past month’s episodes and decisions in Listener Feedback.  Plus, the Monday Survey:  Do you have Low-Carb Meals to share?  We want to hear em!

Happy Listening, and Happy Running!

P.S. Sorry for the technical difficulties in the listerner feedback section! Skip to Chapter around 1:21 if you don’t like it!

Season 7: Bonus Episode 3 – Two Gomers Geek Out over the Rogue One Trailer

The name says it all!  As long as the Gomers podcast exists, there will be Star Wars chat.  And so the first footage of a non-trilogy Star Wars movie warrants a bonus ep, wouldn’t you say?

The guys talk new directions for the franchise, new music…and possibly new running times.  And was that Poe?  No, but we can’t help reading into everything we see.  AND THAT DISH BEING INSTALLED INTO THE DEATH STAR WHAT

Nothing about running, it’s just the guys talking, which we thought you’d like. Happy listening!

Season 7: Episode 11 – How We Want It To End

The guys continue their important conversation about the state of the podcast, their running and racing journeys, and their friendship.

Plus, they get into the most difficult topic they’ve ever had on the podcast to date: How to end this season, and whether this will be their last. Don’t be surprised by a bit of emotion – we know you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Plus we talk about Cheeseburger Salad.

Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 10 – The Gut Punch

In a nutshell: Things are about to change. After receiving an “inciting incident” email from a kind but concerned listener, the guys have a flurry of conversations about where the podcast is currently, where it’s going…and if it should end. In these next two episodes, they invite you into that conversation. Join them as they get serious, face reality, wax nostalgic, and make some determinations.

Remember this?

Don’t worry, there’s plenty of TV talk, Star Wars Bluray chat, and other fun stuff along the way – this is the Gomers, after all!  Happy running!

Season 7: Episode 9 – Drawbridges

In this, the 9th Episode of Two Gomers Conquer the Capital, the guys talk about how they are gearing up for the upcoming race (s), and discuss injuries, travel, and drawbridges. Plus peeps are yucky, Facebook reactions, old-people-getting-their-second-lease-on-life movies, upside-down-Apple logos, and yes: Cheers Chaaaaaaat!

The original two Gomers?

See you in a couple weeks!  Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 8 – Severely Determined

Oh, but it’s been a long two months! But the Gomers are back, with all sorts of news, updates, and reports.  Anthony is traveling the country, and re-upping in training.  Steven ran a big race…and then got injured.  Both guys are determined to heal, get strong, and run the Conquer the Capital!

Plus an Alan Rickman tribute, PBS Kids shows through the ages, vacuum interruptions, Mad Max: Fury Road Oscar chat, how to watch TV when you don’t have TV anymore, and yeah, Fuller House.

Doesn’t get any better than that.

Have a great couple weeks, Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 7 – New Year OneWords

The Gomers are back to conclude their Holiday episodes before taking a brief winter hiatus.  This may be their most personal episode yet, as they not only reveal their One Word Resolutions, but dig deep into their current lives and situations.  Sound fun?  It was for them!  Plus, what they got for Christmas, The GomerNation’s OneWords, Anthony’s first Instagram selfie, and just a bit of Rey theorizing.

Happy New Year, and see you in February!

Season 7: Bonus Episode 2 – Two Gomers Review Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Merry Christmas, here’s our bonus gift to you: 90 minutes of Star Wars chat!

The guys have seen the movie, and this bonus ep is just what you’d expect: half an hour of preamble before they even get to the big event.  But once they do, you’ll hear what they thought, get caught up in their excitement, and get spoiled on nearly every plot point.

Spoiler Alert! We both want a BB8.

Plus, the guys FINALLY open their Gomer Gifts, and you’ll be there to hear it!  Have a wonderful close to your 2015, and see you next year!

Season 7: Episode 6 – Christmas Chafing

It’s the Gomers’ second Christmas Special of 2015, and it’s a fun one!

While the guys do talk running (it’s a running podcast, after all), most of that discussion revolves around lubrication, or lack there-of.  Steven and Anthony are more excited about other things – namely, the countdown to Christmas and The Force Awakens.  Also, their Favorite Things list expand.  Books!  Movies!  Music!  Baby stuff!  Dogs!  Butt-pads!  It’s all here, folks.

OMG She’s trying SO HARD to remember her lines.

Check your feed for a special Christmas Eve episode!  Happy Running, and Happy Holidays!

Oh, and here’s Steven’s present to you: His 2015 Songs To Run To!

Season 7: Episode 5 – Bassoon it will be Christmas

Gather the family round the Yule Log and enjoy our annual tradition: The Two Gomers Christmas Specials!

In this, our first of two specials, we talk Turkey Trots, recording while geared up for a run, honing rods, eating whatever we want (and how that’s changed this year), doctor updates, what the GomerNation is thankful for, and Home Alone LIVE!

Plus, a special visit from everybody’s favorite Elf With Attitude!  Happy listening, Happy Holidays, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 4 – Hometown USA

The guys are back with their Weeks in Review, Turkey Trots in preview, and some No-Carb Breakfast ideas.

Plus, Anthony and Steven have too much fun on this episode discovering a new movie that may or may not be based on their hometown. And they discuss tight vs. slim jeans, couples’ stretching techniques and how Reese’s Puffs are made.

Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Bonus Episode 1 – Two Gomers Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

The title says it all!  The guys gather their families and watch the third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens together.  It’s their first time.  There is commentary.  Well, more like moaning and groaning, but they share some thoughts too.

It’s just a fun little Easter Egg we thought you’d enjoy.  Have fun, and Happy Running!

Season 7: Episode 2 – The New Gomer

Two Gomers Premiere week continues as the guys spend some time catching the Nation up with what’s happened this fall.  Yes, there is a new car.  Yes, there was a GomerPilgrimage to see the Full House house.  Yes, they saw a new movie that they loved and have a mancrush on its star.  Yes, they have been watching some fall TV shows that your grandma is probably also watching.  But the big news is: A new Gomer has joined our ranks!

Season 6 Off-Season: Summer 2015 – Think Outside the Bun

Anthony’s baby is coming soon, but before that we wanted to leave you with another summer review episode, this one all about our health and exercise.

Anthony visits the doctor and gets an important awakening. Steven completes his summer running series. Both of them have good run/bike stories to tell, new nutrition commitments, and races on the horizon.

Plus they discuss this picture, which will for sure be exaclty what the new Star Wars parks will look like when they completed 20 years from now.

Happy Running!

Season 6 – Off-Season Summer 2015 – Two Gomers Rank the Summer Movies

Two eps in two days?  What madness is this?

In this episode, the guys use a dumb new ranking system, developed by Steven, to review all the big movies from summer 2015! From the second Avengers to the fifth Mission Impossible, the guys had a lot of fun in air-conditioned theaters these past several months, and are ready to share the best (Mad Max) and worst (Mad Max) of their experiences.

How you likin it so far, Ma?

Also, they engage in some SERIOUS Star Wars chat. Because they can’t not, you know?

Happy Running!

For the first time ever from Anthony’s garage, the Gomer’s are back to review their summers on a series of special podcasts!

In this episode, the guys talk about their brief time together about a month ago. They ate a lot! They swam in their middle school pool! They talked about old stories and annoyed their wives! They sucked in their guts to try to impress high schoolers! They peeped into windows! You know, the regular.

Also, they talk two-way mirrors, bad movie CGI, Amazon drones, and School of Rock plotholes.

Throw him in the slammer.

Happy Running!

Have a great June, and Happy Running!

After over three months of silence, and almost exactly one year after their Triathlon, the guys are back to catch up the Nation on all things Gomer.

In this, the second part of their Spring catch-up, the guys talk reboots: Galaxy Quest! Coach! Jurassic World! Terminator! And oh yeah, Fuller House and Star Wars.

That’s how WE felt!

They also dig into some feedback concerning Gomernation marathoners, movies they’ve been watching the past three months, and DOING something.

Make sure you stick around for the Easter Egg at the end, it’s a fun one!  Have a great Spring, and Happy Running!

Pretend that’s Mrs. Clause.

Season 6: Episode 22 – Two Gomers Race a Triathlon Season Finale

Well, Nation, this is it.  The guys spend a good amount of time processing their entire review with these questions:

1.  What’s the biggest lesson we learned?

2.  What would we have done differently?

3.  What are we most proud of?

They also spend some time talking about the big end-of-the-season question:  What’s Next?  Plus, they try to catch up on a year of pop culture in 5 minutes.

Oh, those suits.

We can’t say “thank you” enough for the encouragement, advice, and motivation you, the Gomernation, have provided us with this season.  We never could have done it without you!  Have a great summer, and Happy Running!

 

Season 6: Episode 21 – Race in Review Part II (Bike, Run and Finish)

At long last, the Gomers are back with the episode we’ve been working so hard to deliver – the Race in Review!  Don’t want to give too much away, but there’s a LOT to talk about…so much that we’ve split the episode in two.  This second one, Episode 21, covers the second transition, the bike, and the run, and the big finish!

Season 6: Episode 17, Part 2 – Catch-Up

Three weeks to the race, and the Gomers are just the right mix of excited and terrified.  And they’ve got a lot to say about it, which made it necessary to split the Episode into two parts!  This is Part 2.

Steven is in the midst of a “long prep,” including waking up at 5 am, wearing contacts, and cramming himself inside tight clothing.  Anthony spends time swimming with someone half the Gomers’ age, and twice their talent.  The Nation gives great swimming advice.  And the guys remember a show they were (sort of) (ok, VERY sort of) a part of.

Now THAT’S a Gomer

Monday Survey this week:  If you could give ONE TIP to a new runner, what would it be?  JUST ONE!  Happy running!

Season 6: Episode 17, Part 1 – Stuck Inside a Tri-Top

Three weeks to the race, and the Gomers are just the right mix of excited and terrified.  And they’ve got a lot to say about it, which made it necessary to split the Episode into two parts!  This is Part 1.

Steven is in the midst of a “long prep,” including waking up at 5 am, wearing contacts, and cramming himself inside tight clothing.  Anthony spends time swimming with someone half the Gomers’ age, and twice their talent.  The Nation gives great swimming advice.  And the guys remember a show they were (sort of) (ok, VERY sort of) a part of.

Now THAT’S a Gomer

Monday Survey this week:  If you could give ONE TIP to a new runner, what would it be?  JUST ONE!  Happy running!

Season 6: Episode 16 – The De-Dorkification Process

We’re in the month of the Triathlon, and the Gomers are getting nervous/excited/nervous!

Steven starts a fight at the gym.  Anthony falls down on his bike.  Weight, surprisingly, is not really being lost.  Hotel pools mean something different when you’re training for a triathlon.  EXTREMELY basic lessons are new to the Gomers.  And tons of famous sayings are screwed up.  Oh, and dedorkifying a bike is a must.

That’s his disappointed face.

This week’s survey – if you could give just ONE tip to a new swimmer, what would it be?  JUST ONE!  Happy running!

Season 6: Episode 15 – One Gomer Swims in the Ocean

This one’s a doozy, as Steven regales us with the tale of his first ocean swim(s)!  Here’s what to expect:

1.  The ocean is cold.

2.  The ocean is salty.

3.  This ocean is big.

And that’s just the icing on the cake!  Hope you enjoy the episode, and Happy Swimming!

Season 6: Episode 14 – Anthony’s New Bike

In a flashback/time-warp episode, the guys talk about Anthony’s first ride on his new bike.  It’s eye-opening and exciting and we can’t wait for you to hear it and give us feedback.

There he is.

That’s all you need to know!  Enjoy the show, and Happy Biking!

Season 6: Episode 13 – The Doldrums (or: Do Not Molest the Manatees)

The Gomers are feeling the increased training in this, the 13th Episode of Two Gomers Race a Triathlon, but that won’t stop them from updating you and trying to be upbeat!

Anthony tries nose plugs and a swimming cap, and likes one of them.  Steven gets Jelly Legs after tying his first biking/running brick workout.  Baby wipes are good for more than wiping your baby.  Bikes are special to people, and they talk about them.  Drawing for the free tech-shirts takes place.  We thank a bunch of people for being awesome and generous.  And Steven gets a tattoo.

There it is.

Monday Survey: What’s the one bike tip you’d wish you’d known as a beginner?  Happy Running!

 

Season 6: Episode 12 – The Used/Vintage/Retro Bike

After a short, AMC-like mid-season break, the boys are back to finish their training for their triathlon!

Big news:  Steven bought a bike.  But not before revealing the picture of himself on his Stawpid Hipster Bike to Anthony and the world.  The guys go backwards when they kick.  Anthony has discovered his own swimming guru.  Steven DOESN’T watch House of Cards while on long bike rides, even though he totally could.  Flagstaff is hilly, and it’s undecided whether that’s a good or bad thing.  Many members of the Gomernation are thanked.  And the guys can’t remember the name of the place the Saved By the Bell hangs out.

Cool!

Monday Survey:  What kind of bike do you ride?  Have a great week, and Happy Running/Biking/Swimming!

Season 6: Episode 11 – Gym Bags and The Middle School Cafeteria Caste System

In this, the 11th episode, the Gomers finally start feeling like they’re hitting their stride in the pool!

Steven’s building some muscle memory.  Anthony is working on his bilateral breathing.  Nose plugs rule.  Ziplock bags do too.  There was a caste system in the Gomers’ Middle School cafeteria.  Anthony was going to be an Eagle Scout but his troop folded.  The Biggest Losers raced a triathlon.  And money clips are better than thick wallets.

Careful George, you could throw your back out.

Monday Survey:  What’s your favorite Winter Olympics event?  And watch for our second special of the season, “Two Gomers Get Their Feet Wet,”  next week!  Happy Running!

Season 6: Episode 10 – Songs To Swim To

Episode 10 already?  The Gomers are back with more swimming, biking, and running fun!

Steven wishes he’d gotten the memo about the film crew at his pool.  Anthony gets a compliment from a nice couple.  It’s possible to exercise even when you can’t move.  Sun in your eyes is reason enough to learn to breathe on the opposite side.  Road bikes are more fun than stationary bikes.  Listeners share their “hardest thing they’ve ever done” stories.  And the Gomers might be Daft Punk.

It could be Steven and Anthony under there.

Have a great week, and Happy Running!

Season 6: Episode 9 – The 90-Year-Old Lane Hog

After some confusion, the Gomers eventually agree that this is, in fact, Episode 9.

Anthony has a breathing breakthrough.  Steven breaks through a long-standing running goal, celebrates a birthday, and gets an encouraging card.  He also changes a bike tire.  Weird half-marathon injuries.  Snorkel and flipper chat.  Heather Graham was in Twins.  Gibbler was at the half-marathon.  Anthony was in a biking gang.

There he is!

This week’s Survey (again):  In a couple sentences, what is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?  Have a great week, and Happy Running!

Season 6: Episode 8 – Two Gomers Go to the Gym

The Gomers continue to embrace the Year of the Triathlon in this, the eighth episode of Two Gomers Race a Triathlon!

The gym is a lot more crowded in January than in December.  The guys detail their first (and only?) swim together before the triathlon, including biking and running.  Tri shorts leave nothing to the imagination.  It’s possible to listen to music underwater.  Towel service is too expensive.  Steven shares his One Word Resolution.  And the guys still have time to talk some Movies to Bike To.

Aaaaaas yooooou wiiiiiiiish!

Monday Survey this week:  In a couple sentences, what’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?  We want to hear about it and be inspired!  Happy running!

Season 6: Episode 7 – Put the Fear of God in Me

It’s a New Year, and the Gomers are back…and things are starting to get real, fast.

The fear of God was put in Anthony on his very first swim with his coach.  A listener rebukes the guys, and we listen.  Steven is reading a triathlon book and can’t put it down.  Touching the wall and the floor of the pool isn’t going to work anymore.  The guys talk at length about whether or not they are present in this distracted world.  And Anthony reveals his New Years’ One Word Resolution.

Monday Survey – Keep those New Years’ Resolutions coming!  We love em and so does the Nation!  Happy running!

Season 6: Episode 6 – Christmas 2013 Special 3 (or: Gomers Favorite THIII-iiiiiiiiings!)

Awww, it’s the last Gomer Christmas Special or 2013! Don’t be sad, it’s a fun one! The guys spend most of their time in the Gomer’s Favorite Things section, and the favorite things end up being eerilly similar. Also, stick around past the close for a special gift – the opportunity to listen to the Gomers sit in front of their computers and register for the race! Plus a classic impression to end our holiday season.

Not just for decoration.

Monday Survey: What’s your New Year’s Resolution? See you the first full week of January! Merry Christmas and Happy Running!

(p.s. Here’s the link to Steven’s second Favorite Thing: http://www.storylineblog.com/storyline-productivity-schedule.pdf)

Season 6: Episode 5 – Christmas 2013 Special 2 (or: Oh God No Dohn Shooot)

Jingle Gomers, Jingle Gomers, Gomers all the way!  That’s a new Christmas classic and don’t you forget it!

In this, the second Christmas Special of 2013, the guys are full of cheer and wanting to share it with the world.  Anthony discovers something very strange about the bells during cross-country flights.  Steven faces an embarrassing situation in the gym shower, and makes an interesting choice.  Physical therapists can bring epiphanies, and Tony’s does.  There are certain movies one must watch this time of year, whether you’re in your living room or on a stationary bike, and the guys outline them for you, in the usual detail.

Was Jimmy Stewart a Gomer?

Monday Survey:  What’s your New Year’s Resolution?  Let us know, and Happy Running!

Season 6: Episode 4 – Christmas 2013 Special 1 (or: The Friggin Tshirt Revelation)

It’s that special time of year – when you get to stuff your ears with Gomer cheer!  The first 2013 Christmas episode is here!

Steven does his first brick workout and his butt hurts.  Anthony shares some reflections of his past life as he remembers his Grandma.  We bet you ten bucks you can guess Anthony’s indispensable Christmas albums in this week’s S2R2.  The Gomeration’s wish lists are something special.  The recorder is the perfect holiday instrument.  And Steven has a revelation about one of Anthony’s favorite articles of clothing that changes EVERYTHING.

He was dead the whole time!

Monday Survey – What are YOUR indispensable holiday albums and movies?  We want to know so we can talk about them.  Happy Festivus!

 

Season 6: Episode 3 – What the Doctor Ordered

Anthony has some news in this, the third episode of Two Gomers Race a Triathlon.  It wouldn’t be a season of the Gomers without one of them “having some news,” would it?  Also:

Steven runs to work.  It’s snowing in Arizona, but not in Florida…but it is cooler there.  There is a sneakier way to shower.  The women’s locker room is just as gross as the men’s.  Brick workouts do not involve bricks.  It’s possible to not eat turkey for Thanksgiving.  And the Gomers got a cool present from a listener.

Thanks Holly!

Monday Survey:  What’s on your (running, biking and swimming) Holiday wish list?  Let us know so we can put it on ours’, too!

Season 6 : Episode 2 – Naked Dudes On My Left, Naked Dudes On My Right

It’s Steven’s turn to brave the gym and the pool, in this, the second episode of Two Gomers Race a Triathlon!  Here’s what you’ll hear in Episode 2:

There are easy ways to tell the Gomers apart.  Steven has a thing against gyms and needs to get over himself.  Anthony has done more multi-event training.  The guys don’t know how to breathe, or when.  Are women’s locker rooms as open as men’s?  25 yards is nothing like 25 feet.  What the heck is a brick workout?  Blockbuster Video smells like Subway, and Subway smells like BO, and Pizza Hut smells like memories.

Plus, the return of S2R2s, and Listener Feedback impressions!

There he is.

Monday Survey:  Are you doing a Turkey Trot?  Tell us about it!  We want to know!!!!  Happy Running.

Season 6 : Episode 1 – A Before in a Sea of Afters

The wait is over – the Two Gomers are back for Season 6 – Two Gomers Race a Triathlon!  Here’s what you’ll hear in this episode:

The guys (re)introduce themselves, talk about how to tell G1 from G2, and give a little GomerHistory.  Anthony gives the details on his very first swim at the gym.  It is hard to be naked.  Luggage is a good way to carry around your swim trunks.  Swim trunks may not be the best thing to wear while training for a triathlon.  It is hard to breathe.  Goggles rule, but Gomers are SLOW.

Goggles
These are the goggles we’re supposed to wear, right?

And finally, the Gomers answer the question “What distance triathlon will they race?”

It’s gonna be a great season, Nation, we can’t wait to go on the journey with you!  Monday Survey for this week:  What are you looking forward to about Two Gomers Race a Triathlon?  We want to know (so we make sure we do them)!  Happy Running!

Season 5 : Episode 14 – Race in Review (or: Bring a Bag)

The race is over and done, and the guys are on hand to do a full race in review and close up shop on the “Back to the Basics” Season 5.  Join them as they talk overhydration, deep conversations, hitting (or not hitting) the wall, misjudged start times, Parenthood (and 30 Rock and The Office), meeting new members of the Gomernation, hilariously tall half marathon walking teens, juicing, Animal Style fries, and being relieved, for once, that someone ELSE had the biggest Gomer moment of the race.

‘ The guy taking this picture of us and Jules was SO ANNOYED.

And they do it all in one tight 90 minute package.  So enjoy this, the final (and super-sized) episode of Season 5.  Thanks for everything Nation, and Happy Running!

Season 5 : Episode 13 – Race in Preview (or: The Flaccid Palm Punch)

It’s THE WEEK BEFORE THE RACE, and the Gomers are excited and nervous and expectant and freaking out and all the feelings you’re supposed to be feeling before a big race.  Some things that are helping them: A detailed race in preview, words of encouragement from the GomerNation, memories of races gone by…and oh yeah, juicing.

sdf
No, not that kind.

It’s been the Gomers’ ambition, ever since they both had kids in the mix, to record a special podcast about being Dads, living life, staying healthy, and remaining sane.  Now, after weeks of planning and hours and hours of recording, they present to you their 2012 Special Episode, Two Gomers Choose Wisely.

And as you might expect, the episode covers a wide range of topics, including running.  Join the guys as they take an honest look at comparing and judging, making time for important things, deciding what those important things are, life “majors and minors,” finding creative “me times,” chasing and deferring dreams, and doing housework.  All this from that one scene in Indiana Jones!

No, not that one.

Remember, this is also the Gomers’ annual fundraising episode.  So please, if the podcast has inspired, motivated, or entertained you, consider giving when you download.  As always, the guys REALLY appreciate it and couldn’t do it without you!

Season 5 : Episode 11 – Two Gomers: The Unexpected Journey

It’s what wouldn’t fit in the final Christmas Special, and that might be a good thing…as this review of The Hobbit is bursting with spoilers.  Just like that think on the Goblin King’s neck would burst if you poked it too hard with a stick.

At least this image isn’t in 48 fps.

Enjoy the little episode, let us know what you thought of the movie, we want to hear your take!  Happy Running!

Season 5 : Episode 10 – Christmastime Hooray! (or: Running in the snow sucks)

In this, the third and final Christmas Special of 2012, the guys try to cram everything in – so much that they had to split the episode and move their Hobbit review to a separate episode.   They start with some sobering words and thoughts about last week’s tragedy, then move to Week In Review, Gomer’s Favorite Things, and Listener Feedback.  And yes, it’s PACKED with holiday goodness…and JEANS!

Jeans!

Oh and Steven’s impressions are BACK.  Plus, make sure you listen all the way to the end for a Christmas treat!

Thanks for listening this year, Nation!  The Gomers love you and appreciate you so much.  Happy Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

Season 5 : Episode 9 – Christmastime is Near (or: I Quit Oh No Wait I Don’t)

It’s the Gomers’ second Christmas special of 2012, and they are in a festive mood…well, unless they’re talking about rough weeks and rough runs and totally wanting to quit and stuff.  Otherwise, join them as they talk happily about Holiday Wish Lists, band-geek near-death experiences, Christmas movie plotholes, lights on their knuckles, cheese-drenched al dente cauliflower, and not talking about Home Alone.

No, not yet. Still have a LONG way to go.

This week’s Monday Survey – What’s on your NON-RUNNING wish list this holiday season?  And don’t forget that the Gomers’ annual fund-raising special is coming up right after Christmas.  Two Gomers: Parenthood – Choose Wisely.  Get ready, it’s gonna be awesome!

After a week of sickness and travel, the Gomers are back at it again just in time for Thanksgiving.  Join them as they talk Songs To Run To, Turkey Trots, secret vacations, roadside terror, predicting elections, new Wii systems, and this one thing that happens to Steven when it’s cold that he’s wondering whether it happens to anyone else.

Brrrrr!

Season 5 : Episode 6 – Sandy and Star Wars

In an episode that gets both serious and silly, the Gomers discuss all things pressing that are, by now (several days after recording!), completely out of date.  Join them as they talk about their weeks in review, but also the cancelation of the NYC marathon, the upcoming (er, just-completed) election, and, more importantly, the pros and cons of last week’s pop-culture-exploding acquisition.

Monday Survey:  Once again, what are YOUR Songs To Run To?  Have a great week, and Happy Running!

 

Season 5 : Episode 5 – Good Run, Bad Run, Scary Run

It’s a shorter episode this week, but it’s still crammed with Gomer goodness.  Listen in as the guys discuss how to deal with bad runs, how much Halloween scares them, and what to lube when.  Also, they are out of love with the iPad mini.  And there’s this really interesting bit where some absolutely HUGE news is broken, and the guys don’t even realize it.

Obi-Wunder New Management.

This week’s survey:  Let us know your Songs to Run To!  Happy Running!

Season 5 : Episode 4 – Stretching in the Dairy Aisle

In our continuing quest to record an episode under an hour – we fail again.  Oh, but this one is PACKED.  Back to the Future plot holes.  Stretching (or not stretching) tips.  Reverse glottal fries.  Training schedules.  Hipster quandaries. Dressing room misshaps.  And the best thing of all:  A good week of running!  Huzzah!  Oh, wait, not QUITE the best thing:

Maybe HE should try some skinny jeans.

It’s a lot of orchestra chat to start this episode out, but the guys do their best to bring it back to running…most of the time.  Listen in as the guys talk increasing running distance, forgetting to stretch, and of course – balancing running and real life.  Also Goonies, robots, New Jersey, and iPhones 5s.  Plus, is this the guys’ favorite movie?  This week, maybe.

This week’s Monday Survey:  What are your stretching tips?  How long?  How hard?  Which stretches?  Do you use any equipment?  The Gomernation wants to know – Happy Running!

Season 5 : Episode 2 – First Injury of the Season

The boys are getting back in the groove of things – that includes on the road, on the podcast, and on the dance floor.  But is there such a thing as too much of a good thing?  Yes.  Yes there is.

asdf
The exact moment Steven’s foot got re-injured.

Join the Gomers as they spend time talking about their last week in running, traveling all over the country last weekend, going (or not going) vegan, gearing up for a training plan, and yeah, Fall TV.  And more Fall TV.

asdfasdf
Oh THAT’S where the cameras are.

This week’s (cheesy) Monday Survey:  What’s your favorite part about running in the fall?  Enjoy the podcast, and Happy Running!

Season 5: Episode 1 – Back to the Basics

Season 5 is upon us, and things may seem familiar.  The guys are training for the same half-marathon from Season 1, they are listening to the same music to get pumped up, they have some of the same hopes and fears from four years ago…and yeah, they still love talking running, TV, movies, tech, and everything you’ve come to expect from the Two Gomers.

The Gomers reunite, AND the cast of Full House reunites!

Enjoy the premiere episode, complete with Week in Review, Gomers Tips, Songs to Run To, and Listener Feedback.  Talk about back to the basics!

Season 4.5 : Episode 8 – One Gomer Can’t Understand What Bane is Saying

How Gomerish is it that the finale of a season is mostly about Movies and TV?  Answer: very Gomerish.  Join the guys as they burn off some podcast material here at the end of the summer and talk all things Batman, Olympics, and quinoa pronunciation, in that order.

Princess Diaries 3

The Gomers are taking a break till the end of September, see you in Season 5!

Season 4.5 : Episode 7 – The Not-Quite-Finale

The original plan was for the guys to wrap up things this episode, but they got talking so much about whether becoming vegans would affect their running, they had to ONCE AGAIN push the Summer TV and Movie Chat and Olympics Chat to another episode!

That’s cool, enjoy this episode as the guys talk food, running, and whether “Gomer” should be allowed in Words With Friends.  Plus, an intro that will dazzle you with its amount of tangents.  Seriously, it’s pretty astounding.

It all starts here.

Join us in a couple days for our for real finale!  Happy Running!

Season 4.5 : Episode 6 – Return to the Road

The Gomers are back after their small hiatus, since there’s a race to review, a return to the road to dissect, and the Olympics to start (but not finish) to analyze.  Join the guys as they talk about their month in review, what makes a hometown a hometown, Abraham Lincoln’s big year, The Brad’s new baby, and oral fixations.  Plus, how proud they are to run with their wives.

Gomers 2 and 2.5, racing together.

Happy Running, and see you in a week for our Season 4.5 finale!

Season 4.5 : Episode 5 – The Run in Review and The Cliffhanger

The 3rd Annual Gomer Group Run was a big success, and the guys break it down in this latest episode in their off-season.  New friends, old friends, the kids’s run, and the negative impacts of a bike on Anthony’s body – it’s all here!

Group
Always an amazing time with the GomerNation!

Also, the Gomers hash out what they are feeling about the last year or so in their (running) lives, and leave us on a bit of a Cliffhanger, but ever story needs some tension right?  Make sure you check on FB and Twitter for more updates, Nation!  Happy Running!

Season 4.5 : Episode 4 – Plantar Fasciitis, Avengers, and Gomer Group Run

(or: Gomer 1 had no idea who the Hulk was)

 

It’s a good one, folks:  Injuries! Cooking Shows!  Daytime Anchor feuds!  First Father’s Days!  Somewhat spoiler-free blockbuster reviews!  Final Gomer Run Preparations!  And the Gomer Movie Ratings System explained.  That should last you for another long run, huh?

Season 4.5 : Episode 3 – The Bumper Sticker Debate

What, two episodes in two weeks?  That’s what happens when the guys haven’t recorded for a while – they have a hard time stopping!  In this episode, they bring back a couple long-dormant segments:  Songs to Run to and Eat and Run.  They also make an interesting discovery while digging deep into some Listener Feedback, share some college memories, and discuss which is worse – a room full of bassoons or a room full of trumpets.  Oh, and then there’s the 26.2 Bumper Sticker Debate of 2012.

To stick or not to stick?

Also, make sure you Save the Date for the 3rd Annual Gomer Group run, June 30 in Madison!  Hope to see you there, Happy Running!

Season 4.5 : Episode 1 – False Start

Uh oh.

Looks like the Gomers have done it again.  While not a surprise, the guys are disappointed to have to announce that the Red White and Boom! Half Marathon is not going to work for them this year.  Wanna know why, get some details, and hear what is most likely a little more processing about it that you needed?  Then this, the first episode in the fourth-and-a-half season, is just what you’re looking for!

Plus we talk about Modern Marvels: Beans, fat suits on skinny celebs, and the Kansas City Royals. Or something.

Oh, THOSE Royals.

Thanks for sticking with us, even when things change.  You’ll hear from the Gomers again soon – till then, Happy Running!

It’s here – Season 5 of Two Gomers Run For Their Lives!  Get ready for some good old fashioned Gomer introductions, Gomer Seasons in Review, Gomer reflections and predictions, and of course, Gomer Tangents.  It wouldn’t be a season opener (or a Gomer episode, for that matter) without them, right?

If you can guess how THIS comes up, you get a prize.

It’s gonna be a great season as the guys gear up for the Red White and Boom! Half Marathon in Minneapolis on July 4th.  And, as they say several times, a perfect time to start as a new listener as the guys get back to the basics in many ways.  Hope you enjoy this preview, Happy Running!

Off-Season : Two Gomers Review the BOB Stroller

OK, so Anthony’s 4-word review of the BOB stroller turned into a not-so-mini 36 minute Minisode.  Sue us!  We figured no one would complain…so enjoy this tangent-filled, gear-specific, up-to-the-minute episode on your weekend run.  Happy Running!

Off-Season : March 2012 – Glottal Fries

The Gomers are back for their March Off-Season episode, and they have a lot of catching up to do.  Join them to hear how their months of running have gone, whether or not their yearly mottos are sticking, how Anthony’s holding up as a new Dad, how Steven’s holding up in 2 feet of snow, and, most importantly, the Spring TV and movies they’re watching.

OK, that’s not true – the most important thing is the new Half Marathon they’re running, which will also be the focus of the upcoming Season 5:  The Red White and Boom! Half Marathon in Minneapolis on July 4th, 2012!

We need to buy some flag shorts…

Enjoy the podcast, and Happy Running!

Off-Season : Feb 2012 – The Pilgrimages

As promised, the Gomers’ monthly off-season update podcast is here!  And for the first time, the guys are recording in the same room – and that room is in one of the Gomers’ actual homes.  Flagstaff is the place, Steven’s home turf, though only a month before they were together in Tampa.  The guys relate their stories of runs in both places, and ask themselves if the grass is, in fact, greener.

Join the guys as they talk about their months in review, Queen Amidala’s vocal prowess, alternate endings to the Back to the Future movies, what’s coming for Season 5, and the most miraculous substance ever offered in packet form.

But what would it taste like on a Five Guys burger?!

Thanks for listening, and Happy Running!

Season 4 Finale : Episode 10 – The High-Def Mirror

Update your Season 4 Challenge Status here!

How many miles are you  committing to run in 2012?

New Years’ has come and gone, and so has Season 4.  And it’s time to take stock on weight lost, distance run, and lessons learned.  Join the Gomers in this, the season finale, as they discuss their (and the Nation’s!) one-word resolutions, the difficulty of looking in the mirror, incompetent Witness Protection Programs, and Gomer2’s extreme distaste for all things Dane Cook.

Except for this.

Thanks for a great season, Nation!  Make sure you join us in the yearly running goal, and you’ll hear from the Gomers again soon.  Happy Running!

How many miles are committing to run in 2012?

Season 4 : Episode 9 – One-Word Resolutions

Update your status in the Season 4 Challenges here!

2011 is over, and the guys spend this special, shorter episode discussing resolutions – theirs and the Nation’s – for 2012.  Join them as they reveal their one-word commitments, and discuss their running and weight-loss goals as well.  Plus delusional Star Trek captains, hipster journals, and Home Alone what-ifs.  Oh my!

Look what ya did, ya little jerk!

Thanks for a great year, Gomernation!  And here’s to a healthy and happy (running) 2012!

Update your status in the Season 4 Challenges here!

 

Season 4 : Episode 8 – 2012 Year in Preview

The Gomers recorded their final Christmas episode before heading home to the midwest, and it’s a fun and festive one.  Join them as they start talking about what happens after Season 4 comes to a close, give a couple more Christmas Songs to Run To, and spend a lot  of time sharing their Gomers’ Favorite Things, Stuff Edition.

Oh yum.

A heartfelt Merry Christmas from the Gomers, Gomernation!  Enjoy, and Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 7 – Never Look Josh Groban in the Eyes

It’s snowing in Flagstaff and sunny in Florida, but the Gomers are having no problem connecting on their one true passion – Christmas – in this, their second Holiday episode of 2011.  Join them as the talk cold-weather running, soprano sax vs. oboe, Lego separator tools, Home Alone 2 plot-points, and a certain faux-opera singer’s ettiquette demands.

Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Enjoy the season, the guys sure are!  Happy Christmas, and Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 6 – Deciduous Christmas Trees

Update your status in the Season 4 Challenges here!

Deck the halls, ring the bells, and call your mom – the Two Gomers’ Christmas episodes have finally begun! And besides a little confusion concerning what kind of tree is evergreen, the guys seem to be in their element – join them for Christmas light-color pros and cons, Turkey Trot Reviews, the return of Gomers’ Favorite Things, and, of course, in depth discussion of their favorite movie ever.

Or maybe the other one is their favorite movie ever. Can’t remember.

Happy listening, Happy running, and Happy Christmastime!

Season 4 : Special 1 – The New Normal

Head over to the Gomer Store to download the Special!

“Two Gomers New Normal” is the first special of the fourth season!

Head over to the Gomer Store and download (and donate if you’d like!) and join the guys as they discuss how to stay running – and stay healthy – even when your life changes…and changes…and changes.  It gets pretty deep, but not to worry, there’s plenty of fun – including John Hughes (and Candy) chat, new poop revelations, discussion concerning the dangers of Chili’s Too!, and questioning the alive-ness of the Golden Girls.

Droppin like flies.

Remember, to hear the full episode you have to get it through the Gomer Store – there’s an option to get it for free, of course, but please feel free to support the Gomers with a donation!  A $2.99 donation gets you in a drawing for one of the last 2011 shirts, and anything above that and you’re entered into a drawing for a brand new 2012 shirt…SIGNED BY THE GOMERS!  Or not, your choice!

Join Anthony in this special interview episode as he talks with The Brad (the Gomer’s unofficial coach and trainer) about his recent experience running the ING New York City Marathon.

The Brad
The Brad’s the tall one.

Happy listening, and Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 5 – And We’ll Make It I Promise

Register for the Season 4 Challenges here!

It’s one week from the first Challenge of season 4, and the guys are gearing up for the upcoming Thanksgiving 5k!  Join them as they talk turkey (and stuffing and mashed potatoes), mile-a-day commitments, Bon Jovi lyrics, spicy brown mustard, and the potential of a certain show’s return.

Coming back?

Monday Survey for next week:  What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?  Have a great week, Happy Running!

Season 4: Episode 4 Part 2 – The Wall of Sound

It’s Part 2 of the very long Episode 4, and the guys are talking running, food, and music.  Join them as they discuss their weight loss so far, the strangeness of the Breakfast Salad concept, and who’s better – Coldplay or Switchfoot.

They wonder too.

Join us on MONDAY when Anthony interviews The Brad about his New York Marathon experience, and then next week for our final episode before the Thanksgiving 5k!  Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 4 Part 1 – The Dash

Ok, so it’s been a strange season, that’s true.  But Anthony is back from his travels, and the guys are ready to talk about their weeks, update each other and the Nation on their weight loss and journeys toward the Thanksgiving 5k, and talk food, TV, music, and all the things you’re used to from the Two Gomers.  Plus a REALLY CREEPY Halloween story about one of these:

Oooooooooooooo.

Hope you enjoy!  And please share your Songs To Run to for this week’s Monday Survey!  Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 3 – Semi-Solo

Register for the Season 4 Challenges here!

Gomernation, some sad news.  Anthony’s grandmother passed away last week and he’s been in WI for the past couple days, unable to record.

But the guys decided that with Challenge 1 of Season 4 fast approaching, it was worth it for Steven to take one (hopefully final) crack at a solo podcast.   But don’t fret, there will be plenty of special guests and fun surprises.

Jess and Jack

Hope you enjoy!  Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 2 – Running With Child

Good news, Gomernation!

BOTH Gomers are back for this, the second episode of the fourth season.  While much of the episode is welcoming Anthony back and catching up on the not-so-insignificant new developments in his life, the guys find enough time (admittedly, not so hard in an hour thirty minute podcast) to update each other on their progess in the Season 4 Challenges, eating habits, Fall TV impressions, and running celebrity sightings.

Hall
95% sure.

This week’s Monday Survey:  Any suggestions for new impressions for Steven to attempt before the Listener Feedback section?  AND…Any tips for increasing speed?

Happy Running!

Season 4 : Episode 1 – Firsts

Make it official!  Register for the two Season 4 Challenges here!

Ok…so things have gotten a little crazy!  But Episode 1 of Season 4 still appears, albeit a little differently than normal.  Obviously, this is going to be a season like no other – and here’s the reason:

Meet Lilianna Georgeson, Gomer 1.1!

So it’s just Steven this time, but he does his best to start the season off with a (relative) bang, catching the Nation up on the two Season 4 Challenges (which you can register for here) and what he knows about how Anthony is doing, and even some fall TV chat.  And wow, Anthony shows up (sorta) for a guest appearance (not really)!

Have a great week, and Happy Running!

Make it official!  Register for the two Season 4 Challenges here!

Season 4 : Episode 0 – The Two Challenges

The Gomers are back with a new name, a new logo, new theme music…and two new challenges as they preview Season 4.  Join them as they lay out the details of what they’ll be doing – and what they’re inviting the Gomernation to do – over the next several months or so.  Plus there’s Emmy’s chat, discussion on how and how quickly previously-pregnant people lose weight, and a touching reading of our worst iTunes review ever.  Which has become sort of a tradition for the Gomers as they launch a new season.

If only a one-star review felt this good. CHILDISH VIDEO GAME ALERT!

Just to be clear, the two challenges this season are:

1.  PR in a Thanksgiving 5k

2.  Lose 10 pounds by 2012

Commit to these challenges with the Gomers, lose weight, and run for your lives!  Enjoy the season, and Happy Running!

 

Season 3.5 : The Gomers Look Ahead, Part II

Welcome to Part II of The Gomers’ longest episode to date – almost 2 full hours of looking forward, pontificating, tangenting, and baby-talking.  Sheesh, hope you have a long run coming up so you have time to listen!  If not, do it in small, manageable chunks.  When they start talking ABSOLUTE BEST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER, you’re almost there.

Starman
Recognize this famous movie location?!

Thanks for listening, Happy Running!

Season 3.5 : The Gomers Look Ahead, Part I

Summer is coming to a close, and the Gomers have decided to look ahead.  Join them as they make a valiant attempt at an impromptu and candid conversation about what’s next for the Gomers, and come surprisingly close to a conclusion.  Also, it wouldn’t be an episode of the Two Gomers Podcast if there wasn’t a healthy amount of TV chat, especially with the new fall season on the horizon.  You might be surprised about what they’re looking forward to…then again, you might not.

Not likely.

Expect Part II of Looking Ahead early next week.  Happy Running!

Season 3.5 : First Annual Two Gomers Labor Day Virtual 5k/10k

Enter your finishing time here (column G) or take a look at the results!

What was meant to be a 5-minute announcement for the First Annual Two Gomers Labor Day Virtual 5k/10k turned out to be a 20-minute podcast.  Shocking, huh?  Listen as the guys catch up, preview next week’s Looking Ahead episode, and close up the summer in movies.

It’s official – it’s the movie of the summer.

Have fun, and Happy Running!

Enter your finishing time here (column G) or take a look at the results!

Season 3.5 : Gomer Summer Update 2011

Yes, there’s a Gomer Group Run update.

And a summer running update, too.  But mostly this episode consists of the two guys catching up, as they’ve  been state-hopping for the past two months.  So get ready for conversation on topics ranging from Harry Potter to how Tony’s baby’s doing, from Bon Iver to which Star Trek captain is best, and from Abraham Lincoln to the star-studded cast of Camp Cucamonga.

Do the rap, Urkel!

Please enjoy each and every minute of the 84!  Happy summer, and Happy Running!

Season 3.5 : Gomer Extra – Try to find the announcement among the tangents!

The guys try their hardest to make this a simple reminder about the Gomer Group Run coming up on July 16th…

…but it’s been so long since they recorded that they end up talking about McDonald’s Sweet Chili Sauce, Steven’s high school french class, and an alternate universe Marty McFly.  Of course.

Enjoy, and please responde si vous plait on the Event Page ASAP!  Merci!

Season 3 : Episode 13 Part II – Did we fail?

Stop!  If you haven’t listened to the latest Special, Two Gomers’ Life Lessons, do it before listening to this episode!  Download here!

It’s the Season 3 finale, and it’s a doozy.  While there are plenty of chances to tangentize (which they do, and we learn the true definition of “amateur” because of it), the guys focus their attention on one topic: What to do with the fact that their goal, publicized in the title of this months-long season, went unmet.  Other questions inevitably follow:  Will they ever do this again?  How does one motivate oneself to keep going?  Can you learn from failure?  Was it failure at all?  Why God?  And of course: Who am I?!

Steven gave a VHS copy of this movie to Anthony for a groomsman present. True story.

Also, the guys share several final Songs to Run To (and Songs They Ran To), spend some time looking back at this season and seasons past, and start the inevitable conversation of What’s Next?

From the Gomers to the Gomernation, thank you for joining us this season.  Have a great summer, stay cool, never change, BFFs forever…and Happy Running!

P.S. A quick message about shirts at the end!

Season 3 : A Special Gomernouncement: The 2nd Annual Gomer Group Run!

Download the latest special here!

The guys are here with a little announcement:  one month from now is the Second Annual Gomer Group Run!  Join us on July 16, 2011 for a time of fun, food, fellowship, and of course, running!

Last year’s Gomer Run was a blast!

Just wanted to give you a heads up so you can put it on your calendar!  See you Tuesday with the Season 3 Finale! Happy Running!

Season 3 : Episode 13 – Race in Review (or: Marathons are super fricking hard)

Download the Special here!

The Gomers’ Sub-Five Strive at the Minneapolis Marathon has come and gone, and well…they strived!  Join the guys as they begin to process the day of the race, what happened when, why and with whom.  It was a roller coaster of a day, and the Gomers attempt to recreate it in a way that’s honest yet hopeful – a week out, that almost seems possible!  Listen also as they remember their meetings with the Gomernation fondly, and sheepishly try to recall the name of the Gomer Flight Attendant, with no success.

Flight Attendant
Help! We forgot your name! Can anyone help us out?!

This Episode is fully devoted to the Race in Review, and coming next week is the Runner’s Corner with thoughts concerning how they feel after the fact, then SWR2 (Songs We Ran To), and Gomers in Preview…where they begin to attack the “What’s Next” question.  Hope you enjoy, and Happy Running!

Season 3 : Minisode 12 – 20 Hours to the Race

Get the Special, EP, or Shirts by clicking here!

The Gomers are in a rare position:  Both in the same room at the same time.  That’s because in less than a day the season culminates in the Sub-Five, 26.2 effort – and the guys have a lot to say about it.  Thankfully they have the Gomernation’s feedback and thoughts to keep this, their final episode before the race, semi-organized.  It does have a certain feeling of…well…ramdomness, let’s say.  Maybe it has to do with the fact that Gomer2 almost killed Gomer1 last night.  That’s not a joke.

The most fun near-death experience ever.

Join the Gomers as they share their thoughts, nervousnesses, excitements, and fears less than 20 hours from the big event.  We’ll let you know how it goes, Happy Running!

Season 3 : Episode 12 – The Dress Rehearsal

There’s two weeks until the marathon, and the Gomers are preparing – mentally, emotionally, and physically. Join them as they discuss the impending sub-5 goal, and their “dress rehearsals”: The 20 miler. The good news: they went surprisingly well. The bad news: Well, let’s just say it has the potential to be pretty bad indeed.

And, for the last time this season, some of your favorite sections:  Week in Review, True Gomer Confessions, Week in Preview, and 2 new Songs To Run To.  Enjoy, and Happy Running!

Season 3 : Minisode 11 – Home Alone House and Hot Borgs

The guys are recovering from their 18 milers (just in time to run their 20 milers next week) by recording a Listener-centric Minisode.  Hear as they discuss bagels and nipple guards, running sockless, trusting your training, hot Borgs, and their next fundraising goal:  $2.4 million.

Home Alone
It’s within our grasp…

Hope you enjoy, and Happy Running!

Season 3 : Episode 11 – Seemed like a good idea at the time

For the first time ever, the Gomers are recording an episode MINUTES after running their LSRs – the dreaded 18 miler, to be exact.  Great idea, huh?  The Gomers thought so, you’ll have to judge the results for yourself.  Just a heads up – there’s bonking and second (and third) winds all over the course of this one episode, one Gomer ends up on the floor in pain for a while, and neither guy can remember exactly which episode number this is supposed to be, as if that’s difficult to find out.  Plus, Gomer2 almost breaks down just THINKING about LISTENING to Sleepless in Seattle.

Rita Wilson
She got robbed.

Plus all your favorite sections – Weeks in Review, Eat and Run (no wait, scratch that), Songs To Run To, and Week in Preview.  Oh, and did someone say Awkward Current Events Chat?  There’s some of that too.  Happy Running!
