RED Episode #5: Run Walk Run with Jeff Galloway Part 2

Welcome back to another episode of the Run Eat Drink Podcast

On Sunday, August 6th,  America's Coach and Olympian, Jeff Galloway, hosted a 3-hour running school in Orlando, Florida at the Track Shack. This gave me a great opportunity to share with all of you what his method is all about and why it works. It was such a great experience,  and afterward we sampled some tasty food and beverages right around the corner at Santiago's Bodega.

In part two, we explore the science behind the method and how Jeff himself used it to qualify for the Boston Marathon when he wanted to make it back after the tragic events there in 2013.  Anyone, from someone just getting started to an elite runner, can use the method to improve time or train to cross that finish line for the first time and feel great after the race.  

Special thanks to the Orlando Track Shack, Jeff Galloway, and Santiago's Bodega for allowing us to film this episode.  Here are some resources so you can find out more about his method and the delicous food and beverages we tried.

RED Quick Bite #13 Fillabuger Pulled Pork Stuffed Burger at JDub's Not Quite Friday 5K

In Quick Bite #13, we share the Pulled Pork Stuffed Burger we ordered from the Fillaburger Food Truck at the JDub's Not Quite Friday 5K last week. Okay, actually, it was what my husband ordered, but we ordered the Mac and Cheese Stuffed Burger and the Pulled Pork Burger and agreed to share because they both looked amazing and came highly recommended.   The Pulled Pork Stuffed Burger with it's sweet BBQ sauce and crunchy fried onions was so tasty that we could not skip sharing it with you.  it paired perfectly with the Bell Cow (including a shot of coffee) that we did not film, but I had to have it because I enjoyed it so much at Nice Guys and when I saw it there on tap with addition of a shot of coffee, I couldn't say no.  You can check it out in Quick Bite #6.  

If you are in the Sarasota area on a Thursday night, you really should drop by JDub's Brewing, run their Not Quite Friday 5K, sample their tasty beer offerings, and order a stuffed burger from the Fillaburger Food Truck.

RED Episode #4 Run Walk Run with Jeff Galloway (Part 1)

Welcome back to Run Eat Drink Podcast!  

In this episode, I want to share the method I use to train for races of all distances.  I discovered his method in January 2011, when I ran my first half marathon at Walt Disney World.  I was an inexperienced runner who found a book online with a running schedule in it, tried to follow it, and headed to the race.  Mistakes were made.  I would describe that experience as painful and a real struggle, although I crossed the finish line with my husband and accomplished the goal.  At the race expo, Jeff was giving a motivational talk about his method.  He talked about taking walk breaks so you can finish strong.  Those walk breaks are short, 30 seconds or less,  and protect you from running out of gas at the end of the race.  It does not matter whether you are trying to qualify for Boston or complete your first race, he said, you can use this method to pass others at the end, finish with a smile, and still have energy to celebrate afterward.

When we got home and started to train for our next race, his words were in the back of my mind.  I did some research and found that he had a whole program, and that there was "an app for that" from LoloFit. It gives you a training plan based on your goal, a recommended ratio for running and walking, and during the workouts, it is Jeff's voice telling you when to run, when to walk, and dropping in occassionally with motivation and encouragement to keep going.  I cannot tell you what a difference it made in training, motivation, and performance.  I became one of his e-coach clients, and have been an avid supporter ever since!

On Sunday, August 6th,  America's Coach and Olympian, Jeff Galloway, hosted a 3-hour running school in Orlando, Florida at the Track Shack. This gave me a great opportunity to share with all of you what his method is all about and why it works. It was such a great experience,  and afterward we sampled some tasty food and beverages right around the corner at Santiago's Bodega.

Jeff took the time to do an interview with us, and he gave us so much great information, so we are breaking up his interview into three separate podcast episodes.  This is the first part of his chat with us,  Jeff talks about the history of the run-walk-run method and how he became "America's Coach."  In part two, we will explore the science behind the method, and in the final part of his interview with us, Jeff shares resources for anyone out there who wants to use his run-walk-run method.

Special thanks to the Orlando Track Shack, Jeff Galloway, and Santiago's Bodega for allowing us to film this episode.  Here are some resources so you can find out more about his method and the delicous food and beverages we tried.

Quick Bite #9: Patio Tapas and Beer

Happy National Wine and Cheese Day! 

Last Thursday we traveled to Boca Raton for the Levis JCC's Run, Sweat, and Beers 5K.  While in Boca, we got the chance to eat at an amazing Tapas restaurant, Patio Tapas and Beer.  When you check in on Yelp, you get a free Sangria, and it being National Wine and Cheese Day today, July 25th, we thought we'd post our review of Patio Tapas and Beer's tasty red sangria.If you are ever in Boca, you should stop by this small restaurant that is packed full of delicious beverages and tapas.

Question for My Fellow Runners

While this is not a "Quick Bite" or a regular episode, I wanted to put a question out to my fellow runners.  When I can't travel to a destination race, I will be sharing my experiences running, but also asking questions of those runners who are much more experienced than I am.  Like I always say, I am a "back of the pack" kind of runner who makes the most of the race entry fee.  I look to more experienced runners to gain information and I will share what has worked for me in addition to filming the full podcast episodes where I feature a great city, destination run, delicious food, and tasty beverages.  I always say we accomplish, explore, and indulge together.  That accomplishment comes from sharing what I know and learning from the great people I connect with online and through social media.

RED Episode 1: The Tampa Beer Run

Run Eat Drink Episode 1: The Tampa Beer Run

June 10, 2017

Hey, Everyone!  Welcome to our first episode, where we head to Tampa, Florida for the Tampa Beer Run.  Yes, we get to sample beer on the course, but more importantly, this run raises funds for My Hope Chest, which helps women pay for reconstructive surgery after their courageous battles with breast cancer.  After the run, we need to refuel, and what better way than to sample Tampa on a plate at the Columbia Restaurant.  Our final stop on this trip is Cigar City Brewing, where you can spot the rolling of cigars and a long line of tasty beer on tap, and ours is just a sampling of their libations.  For more information, check out the show notes below.

 

 

My Hope Chest

Connect with My Hope Chest at their website and learn about their upcoming 5K Glow Run coming up in April 2018, also in the Tampa area.

Al Lopez Park

This is a beautiful park that is flat and an easy run.  There was no time limit or specific pace per mile you needed to adhere to, so this race is great for beginners or run/walkers.

Tampa Beer Run on Facebook

We paid a reasonable entry fee of $45 dollars and added a VIP ticket for $12 more to get a couple of extra beers at the after party as well as souvenir Tampa Beer Run glasses and a white cotton t-shirt.

Columbia Restaurant

This Tampa staple has been around since 1905, and we happened to sample these:

Crab Croquette

Spanish Bean Soup

1905 Salad

Cuban Sandwich

Cigar City Brewing

At this brewery, there are some amazing beers and here is a list of a few we recommend:

Pollona! With Chocolate! Milk Stout with Chocolate

Caramel Coffee Kölsch

110K+OT Batch #9 Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Imperial Brown Ale

Wasabi Ginger Saison

 

We've crossed the finish line!

Thank you for watching!! Join us next time as we run another destination race, sample tasty beverages, and refuel with delicious food.  We hope this helps you preview some awesome vacation or "runcation" destinations.  If you have any that we should feature, please let us know on Instagram, Twitter, or our website, www.runeatdrink.net.
