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 Thanks, and Happy Running!

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 ( if you’re willing to help us locate and isolate clips as well! Happy Running!

New to the Two Gomers? Start Here!

If you’re just finding us because of the recent shout-out on Stuff You Should Know, this is a great place to start: our most recent “Race in Review” from this past January. Another great starter episode – one a bit more typical of the podcast – is Season 7 Episode 4, “Hometown USA.” Then, feel free to listen from the beginning, our whole crazy journey is there for the listening! Welcome to the Gomernation!


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 sometimes all those things at once). It’s an instant classic you won’t want to miss!

Happy Listening, and Happy Running!
