RED Episode #46: Barb’s 5K at the JG 13.1 Half Marathon Weekend

Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia and the 5th Anniversary of the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon Weekend!

RUN

This episode features Barb’s 5K, the first race in our weekend celebrating the 5th Anniversary of one of our favorite races.  We also got the chance to run with some great people from the Extra Mile Podcast Group. If you have not listened to the Extra Mile Podcast or Extra Mile Podcast: Galloway Edition, you are missing out. Kevin Gwin is the host of these two awesome podcasts about running and this group is so motivational.  We ran through Piedmont Park.  Although it was wet, raining, and very cold compared to Florida weather normally, we had a blast with these people and in the beautiful setting of the park. Barb Galloway even met us at the finish and congratulated us on finishing the race.  We loved every minute! We hope you’ll join us next year!

EAT

Whenever we come to Atlanta, we make it a tradition to eat at Trader Vic’s.  Home of the original Mai Tai, their food is also an amazing taste of the South Pacific.  We had the Pupu Platter called Cosmo Tidbits on their menu.  Ribs, perfectly battered and fried shrimp and delicious ribs from their unique wood-fired ovens that you can see as you sit and sip on your Mai Tai.  We also had their delicious Morel Mushroom appetizer.  It is a must-have from their menu.  These appetizers are why we almost never get to the main entree.  We also had a Hot-Buttered Rum as part of our dessert.  Buttery, cinnamon, and sweet flavors warm you from head to toe.  (I know this is the eating portion, but it was so good, I couldn’t help but mention it.)  If you come to Atlanta, come to Trader Vic’s.  Their entrees are also dynamite, but their appetizers are shareable and very filling. 

DRINK

Right after Barb’s 5K, we went to Orpheus Brewing.  They hosted a special event celebrating Barb’s 5K and letting us try their tasty beer.  We had a Stout and a couple of sours they had on draft in a beautiful snifter commemorating the race weekend.  We hope they continue this tradition for years to come because the after party had tasty beer and great runners to hang out with and celebrate.

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode #45: Happy 5th Anniversary of the JG 13.1 Race Weekend!

It’s the 5th Anniversary of the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon Weekend!

You all know that this race is near and dear to my heart because Jeff Galloway is my coach.  Jeff is an Olympian and known all over the world for his Run-Walk-Run method.  He and his wife Barbara have put on a fun and inspiring race weekend for the past 5 years.

Jeff and Barb have helped so many people reach their goals, from weight loss through running to completing a marathon.  He is such a friend to our podcast and a mentor to us.  We just had to celebrate Jeff and Barb in this first episode of our series recapping the 5th annual race weekend!

So, we wanted to take the time to say thank you to Jeff and Barb.  Here are some messages to Jeff and Barb congratulating them on these past five years and wishing them many more to come!

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!
