Two Gomers Run For Their Lives

Health & Wellness Podcasts >

Since 2008, the Two Gomers have been getting off the couch and doing things they never thought they could do. First, they trained for a Half Marathon. Then they went for the full. After that, they tried to run 26.2 in under 5 hours (the Sub-Five Strive). After a fourth season of some major life changes (a new baby for one, a new job for the other), and Season 5 where they went back to the basics, learning to train for a Half Marathon all over again, Season 6 is upon us: Two Gomers Race A Triathlon! Join Steven and Anthony as they continue to challenge themselves, run (swim and bike) ridiculous distances, and go off on about a dozen entertaining tangents per episode. Whether this podcast motivates, entertains, or inspires, we hope you enjoy Two Gomers Run For Their Lives! Happy Running!
