RED Episode #43: 2018 Wine and Dine Half Marathon - A Comeback!

Welcome to Orlando, Florida and Walt Disney World for the 2018 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, Two-Course Challenge, and Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

RUN

In this episode, we run the half marathon on Sunday of theRunDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  The course is relatively flat and takes you from Magic Kingdom parking lot to Animal Kingdom and the beautiful Pandora area then to Hollywood Studios before finishing around the World Showcase at Epcot.  My cameraman narrates most of this episode because he wanted me to run "my race at my pace" for this comeback.  It is a comeback because we were picked up at mile 10 of this same half marathon last year. So we had to return and finish what we started.  A year later, 50 pounds lighter, and feeling good on race day, this was an emotional one for the books!

 

EAT

We visited theFlavors from Firebooth at the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival to have their smokey and delicious offerings.  The Piggy Wings are pork wings with a Korean BBQ sauce and a tangy slaw.  The smell of the booth alone is worth Disney bringing it back next year.  We had more from the booth because of the fantastic aroma, so stay tuned for Quick Bites with more to share!

DRINK

Flavors from Firealso had an interesting bourbon beverage called the Swine Brine.  Jim Beam, lemon juice, apple cider, and dijon mustard!  Who thought to put all that together?  A genius, that's who. 

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Quick Bite #55: A Pre-Race Chat with Olympian Jeff Galloway!

Here's our first Quick Bite from the 2018 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekendand it's a big one... an honor to talk with Olympian and America's Coach, Jeff Galloway!

He was so nice and knew how much this weekend as well as his race weekend coming up in December mean to me, so he offered to sit down and have lunch with us and talk about last minute race tips for this weekend.  Jeff has been our e-coach for many years now, and his expert advice and training plans make all the difference.  He is such a generous and kind man with a wealth of knowledge for everyone in the walking,  run-walk-run, or running community.  We are so glad we got to sit down with him and get some advice.  Our cameraman will tell you that it calmed my nerves tremendously!  

(This was not a paid advertisement in any way.  I am just really lucky to have such a great friend and coach who is willing to share his knowledge on the podcast.)

We will see him again for his race weekend and it's the 5th anniversary of his Jeff Galloway 13.1 Half Marathon Weekend.He just recently did a medal reveal on YouTubeand it is huge!  What a feeling it will be to have Jeff at the finish as we receive that 5th anniversary medal. I can't wait!  Check out the videoand the race. Come join us!

RED Quick Bite #54: Wine and Dine Episodes Coming and a Special Thank You to Everyone!

We fully intended to have episodes out this week from our incredible weekend at Walt Disney World for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  We had to hit the ground running in our day jobs, and that caused a slight delay.  

We will have the episodes out next week and we think they will be worth the wait!  So please, stay tuned.

Also, thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement through each and every episode, but especially this weekend.  It meant so much to us!

Tune in next week for some awesome shows!
