RED Quick Bite #32: Meet Tegan a Rescue from Fast and Furriest 5K

RUN

The Fast and The Furriest 5K is quite possibly one of the best 5Ks we've run because it benefits the Gulf Coast Humane Society, an organization that supports animals in need.  Please support this great organization by running or walking this race, volunteering, or donating.  You can run, you can walk, and best of all, your dog can participate in the race.  We met some of the best dogs and people.  One dog stole our hearts.  Her name is Tegan.  You can follow her on Instagram here.  

This Quick Bite is her inspiring story.  Jess and Mike recued her from Second Chance Pet Adoptions in Raleigh, North Carolina and recently relocated to the Fort Myers area with her.  Tegan was a hero to everyone on the course that day and we appreciate Jess and Mike telling us her story!

DRINK

Marlins Brewhouse features over 40 beers on tap and crowlers!  We had a great local beer from Scotty's Bierwerks and this brewhouse features all kinds of tasty Florida beer.

RED Quick Bite #31: Dunk this Doughnut Cocktail at Datz in Tampa

RUN

Last June, we launched our podcast, and the first run we ever featured was  the Tampa Beer Run.  Tampa Beer Run  is not only special because it was our first, but because it benefits My Hope Chest, which helps those recovering from breast cancer with reconstructive surgery costs. After the run, we got a bite to eat and a cocktail at Datz.

EAT

Datz is a great place to eat in the Tampa area, only blocks from Bayshore Boulevard, a beautiful stretch of sidewalk, maybe even the longest in Florida, where you can look out over the beautiful Tampa Bay and where we ran Gasparilla in February. Datz features classic comfort food with a twist, has a great brunch menu, and some creative cocktails as well as an outstanding beer list.

DRINK

At Datz we had a great cocktail featuring coffee and a powdered doughnut as a garnish! The Dunk this Doughnut Cocktail is what we are featuring in this Quick Bite.

RED Quick Bite #30: The Farmer at Maple Street Biscuit Company in Jax

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend got off to a great start.  We decided to experience as much of the weekend as possible by completing the Booby Trap Challenge, which is the 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon during the weekend.  And who are we kidding, we love the bling!  When we first featured The Maple Street Biscuit Company, we had just completed the 10K and the 5K.  And we were HUNGRY!  So we had a few of the tasty dishes this rustic community-focused restaurant has to offer.

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company.  Apple butter is my jam! Pun intended.  And The Farmer has tons of it along with tasty chicken, bacon, cheese, and a homemade biscuit to boot.  Guy Fieri perfected the hunch, but can I?

DRINK

No featured drinks in this episode, but The Maple Street Biscuit Company has tasty coffee as well as fountain drinks and more.

RED Quick Bite #29: Flashback to The Dusty Boot at Black Sheep in Jax

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend  is what brought us to Jacksonville and led us to some tasty food and beverages.  In this Quick Bite, we flashback to some that we tried but did not get the chance to share in the original episode from that amazing weekend in February.

EAT

A place to celebrate our accomplishment? Black Sheep in the historic Five Points District of Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.  They are focused on creating delicious dishes using local ingredients.  We took time to talk with Executive Chef Waylon Rivers about what makes this restaurant special.  We featured his pasta dish in RED Episode #20 but he also gave us a great recommendation for a celebratory drink.

DRINK

Black Sheep is home to some eclectic cocktails and Waylon's recommendation was their version of a whiskey sour called the Dusty Boot.  I could have had 3 or 4 of those to celebrate completing our races.

RED Episode #24 Levis JCC Sprint and Sip in Boca Raton

RUN

Last July, we went to Boca Raton to run the Levis JCC Run, Sweat, and Beers Race. We stumbled upon a great race.  It was on a Thursday, and that was the day I had off from work, and it was to support a community organization, so that is why we decided to go.  But we discovered a great organization, a well-organized run, and a great brewery at the after party.  So we registered for their inaugural Sprint and Sip, which was originally scheduled for September.  Hurricane Irma forced it to be postponed until March 2018. It is a great little nighttime race series, all contained within a park, and with beer at the after party.    This time, we got great little medals that double as bottle openers!  If you are in Boca Raton, check these little races out.


EAT

The reason I got so fascinated with this restaurant was that their logo looked like a comic book and caught my eye, but the food is so delicous at Kapow Noodle Bar.  The mural inside is beautiful and the food is next level.  We tried the Sigapore Street Noodles. Their curry flavor and pork belly make me wish I could have it all over again as I write these show notes.  Mouthwatering goodness!


DRINK

Barrel of Monks Brewery is nestled in a little industrial park, but the vibe inside is comfortable with great lighting and barrels mounted on walls.  Swag that pays tribute to classic 80’s movies and video games is the icing on the cake.  The beer is so tasty.  We tried the Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout Den of Sins.  Amazing!

RED Episode #23: Tampa Beer Run Winter Edition

RUN

Last June, we launched our podcast, and the first run we ever featured was  the Tampa Beer Run.  A link to the first episode is hereTampa Beer Run  is not only special because it was our first, but because it benefits My Hope Chest, which helps those recovering from breast cancer with reconstructive surgery costs.  This was a great run in Al Lopez Park and with 4 different beer stops featuring samples from local Florida breweries and one from Georgia.  Don't forget about My Hope Chest’s upcoming GloWalk in April, too, which will be a great time running through the historic Tampa RiverWalk at night! 

EAT

Datz is a great place to eat in the Tampa area, only blocks from Bayshore Boulevard, a beautiful stretch of sidewalk, maybe even the longest in Florida, where you can look out over the beautiful Tampa Bay and where we ran Gasparilla in February. Datz features classic comfort food with a twist, has a great brunch menu, and some creative cocktails as well as an outstanding beer list.

DRINK

On the run, there were four beer stops featuring the following brews:

#1 Terrapin Hi 5 (IPA)

#2 Coppertail Unholy

#3 Motorworks Cruiser Kolsch

#4 Six Ten Tent Beer Lager

Our favorites were the Motorworks and the Six Ten.  We can’t wait to have them again.

At Datz we had a great cocktail featuring coffee and a powdered doughnut as a garnish!  Look for it on a Quick Bite in the coming weeks!

Special thanks to our sponsor, Health I.Q.!  Health I.Q. celebrates the healthy choices people make by helping them find lower rates on life insurance.  If you are a weightlifter, swimmer, yogi, runner, or cyclist, you could get rewarded for the healthy lifestyle you are living.  For more information and to see if you qualify, go to www.healthiq.com/red or mention the promo code RED when you talk to a Health I.Q. agent at 1 (800) 549-1664.  A big thank you to them for sponsoring this week's show.

RUN

Last weekend, we participated in the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic.  The PGDC in Tampa, Florida has a variety of distances you can run during the weekend both timed races and races just for fun, and we selected the half marathon as the second part of our Treasured Chest Challenge (running the Donna Half Marathon and the Gasparilla Half Marathon).  It was a hot and humid day.  I’m not gonna lie to you.  I finished the race very slowly and it was HOT and HUMID.  I made the mistake of not hydrating enough before the race or during, so I suffered afterward, so much so that I almost had to skip the eating and drinking portion of our podcast.  But I rallied back to feature a couple of great places.

EAT

A place to celebrate our accomplishment? Kojak’s House of Ribs.  A South Tampa staple since 1978 and a recommendation coming directly from my camera man, who was born and raised there, Kojak’s ribs are a must when in Tampa.

DRINK

We headed to Tampa Bay Brewing Company to try a flight of locally brewed beer.  TBBC is in the heart of Ybor City in Tampa, which has a lot of interesting hot spots.  What did we drink to celebrate the completion of our Treasured Chest Challenge?  A flight, of course!

RUN

Last weekend, we participated in the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic. One of the biggest highlights of the weekend was being able to interview Meb Keflezighi, who is an inspiration to us. He is the only man to win a silver medal in the Olympics (Athens 2004), win NYC Marathon (2009), and win the Boston Marathon (2014). Watching his success was inspiring to us, but even more than that, his humility and the way he lives his life with faith, family, and education as top priorities is a key reason he inspires those around him.  He also has a foundation and through it helps support and encourage people with goals in much the same way he was supported by his family, his faith, and the community around him.  We interviewed him at the Expo and wanted to bring you that interview in its entirety. 

We will feature the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic,Kojak’s House of Ribs, and Tampa Bay Brewing Company in a full episode later this week.

RED Quick Bite #28: The Bouncy HuntERs from the 26.2 Donna Marathon Weekend

 The Bouncy HuntERs are a group we met on the Social Shakeout Run at Southern Grounds Coffee on Friday of our Donna 26.2 Marathon Weekend two weeks ago.  Andi Sharp, who started the group to benefit the Donna Foundation, took time to talk with us about the group that raises money for the Donna Foundation to help finish breast cancer, her personal endeavor with Gr8ful G8als, and what it is like to experience the Donna Marathon Weekend for the first time.  She will also be runending the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic this weekend as part of the Treasure Chest Challenge we will both be completing.  We have linked to her Facebook group here so you can find and support their endeavors.

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend continued on Sunday.  We signed up for the Booby Trap Challenge.  That means we were scheduled to run a 10K and a 5K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday (or runners can choose to do the full marathon instead of the half as a part of their Booby Trap Challenge).  The Half and Full Marathons are run at the same time, with a 7-hour time limit on the course for both races.  The spectators make this race, cheering us on with hilarious signs, offering beer, mimosas, doughnuts, and more.  The fellow runners motivating each other are inspiring.  The feeling of this half or full marathon is something everyone must experience.

EAT

A place to celebrate our accomplishment? Black Sheep in the historic Five Points District of Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.  They are focused on creating delicious dishes using local ingredients.  We took time to talk with Executive Chef Waylon Rivers about what makes this restaurant special and then we sampled an amazing pasta dish, Spaghetti Alla  Chitarra.  Winter squash, pecorino, garlic, sage, rosemary, and sunflower seeds make this a mouthwatering must have!

DRINK

Intiuition Ale Works is a great brewery in Jacksonville.  We got the inside scoop from Bronson Olympia, a Tap Room Manager there.  (They also serve appetizers, small plates, and sandwiches from Black Sheep!)  We recommend the Jon Boat Coastal Ale as a lighter brew perfect for a hot day or our personal favorite, the Underdark is an Imperial  / Double Stout that is aged in Willet Rye Barrels for a year and only released in February.  So lucky we were there!

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company. We decided to try their waffle, complete with bacon and asiago cheese in the batter, salted butter, and warm made-from-scratch maple syrup.  Don't worry, we tried biscuits and their biscuit sandwiches that we will feature in upcoming quick bites, too.

DRINK

Main & Six is one of the newest breweries in the Jacksonville area, and it pays tribute to the community.  Co-Founder Dennis Espinosa talks about how he got started and takes us through a flight of his tasty beers.  Our favorite, of course, was the Hazelnut Coffee Stout, which was a collaboration with Social Grounds Coffee Company.  Although Main & Six has only been open for three months, the beer is on point and it is a spot you need to visit when in Jacksonville.

RUN

Jeff Galloway 13.1 is a race that is near and dear to my heart because Jeff Galloway has been my run-walk-run coach for so many years.  He and his wife Barbara are such geniune and supportive people who are passionate about running.  Their beautiful half marathon and 5K courses support great causes like the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and the Piedmont Dog Park as well as the Donna Foundation and Team 413.  The half marathon course takes you through some of the best sights you can see in Atlanta.  This year, the race was a challenge for me becuase I rolled my ankle before mile 1 and had to fight to finish.  Next year, I will come back stronger and more careful than ever to highlight that beautiful course.  It was a race that tested endurance, mental toughness, and dedicaton.  The people on the course, especially the 4:30 pacers and that great group of ladies who finished just ahead of us and stayed to cheer us on, as well as Jeff at the finish, were wondeful to us and we can't thank them enough!  Next year will be great!

EAT

The Wrecking Bar Brewpub is located in a renovated and hisotric space in Atlanta.  The food we had - the corn pups - were incredible! 

Wrecking Bar cheddarwurst, cornbread battered and fried, then served with curry ketchup & yellow mustard.  Melt in your mouth tender meat and the sweetness of the cornbread along with the tart and tang of the dipping sauces... just incredible.

DRINK

The Wrecking Bar Brewpub has homemade ginger beer, lime, and bourbon in their kentucky mule.  It was perfect for bourbon lovers or anyone who likes a moscow mule but is looking for a twist. Their drink meny is eclectic and beer selection is vast and has somehting for everyone, too.

In this episode we run the first of two races in the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon Weekend

RUN 

The Double G is made up of two races: Barb’s 5k on Saturday and Jeff’s Half Marathon on Sunday. On Saturday it is a great 3.1 miles through Piedmont Park.  There is such beautiful scenery and a dog park, which is one of my all-time favorite parts of the race.  This one was so special this year because Barb met us and ran across the finishline with us.  It can be a cold one and we saw snow on the ground, but it is a great way to get a change from the scenery here in Florida.

 

EAT 

The Expo for Jeff Galloway's Race Weekend is held at the Westin Peachtree.  At the top of this beautiful hotel is the Sundial Restaurant.   72 floors up to be exact.  The elevator ride alone is breathtaking.  The food was great as you will see in our episode!

 

DRINK 

Barbara Galloway partnered with Orpheus Brewing to give us a great party after the race.  We got a custom-made glass with the logo from the brewery and the race and sampled four different beers from Orpheus Brewing.  And since we love coffee, you know our favorite one featured a collaboration between the brewery and Java Lords Speciality Coffee Roasters.

RUN

This week we ran the 15th Annual Sarasota YMCA Ringling Bridge Run in Sarasota.  This run benefits the Sarasota YMCA.  It was a beautiful run over the water, included some hill work on the bridge, which is one of the only ways you can get hill work in Florida, and there was no time limit, so it was perfect to get back into the swing of things in 2018!    Special thanks to Sarasota Police Dparmtent for keeping us safe on the course!

 

EAT

Our next stop was Yoders Amish Restaurant, a famous spot for pie in Sarasota.  They have an amazing breakfast, were featured on Man Vs. Food for their delicous friend chicken, but we were there for the world-famous pie.  It was worth the wait!

 

DRINK

Our final stop this episode was Big Top Brewing Company.  We got to try their Ringmaster, an award-wining Raspberry Berliner Weiss.    It is a sour beer but delicous.

RED Episode 14: Fit Foodie Flashback

This is a flashback episode.  We registered for the Fit Foodie 5K and planned to run it in September of 2017.  Then Hurricane Irma had other plans and it got postponed to December 2017.  If you all have been following me on social media, you know I had an injury during December as well as a crazy holiday schedule that delayed some of my podcasts.  So this is a look back at a fun race where we met some amazing people. 

RUN

The Fit Foodie 5K course had a long and tall bridge in Clearwater, so if this race series comes back and you need to practice some hills, it is a great one.  The John Hancock Villiage with food and beverages afterward was a great time.  If you are not local to Florida, they run this series all over the country.  So be sure to check it out near you if it comes back next year!

CHARITY

We talked with Jessica Bomberg, Vice President for Peer-to-Peer Fundraising with No Kid Hungry.  She talked about their amazing organization and what they do to fight childhood hunger. Please consider running next year, donating on their website, or volunteering to help their cause.  (Not a paid advertisement, we just think what they do is great.)

EAT

Next we stopped by to see Rene Marquis cook some Cauliflower Fried Rice.  It had Forbidden Rice, Tofu, Edamame, and more.  The smell of the soy sauce and spices would have made your mouth water and it is healthy.  It was a tasty dish and looked so easy to make! 

DRINK

Next up, Dunedin Brewery and a chat with Mike Graff from sales and distribution.  We tried an Apricot Peach American Wheat Beer they brought along and Mike helped us toast our accomplishment.  It is one of the most established breweries in Florida, so if you are ever in town, check them out!

RED Episode #13: Superheroes Half Marathon at Disneyland

In this episode we run one of our all-time favorite races, the Superheroes Half Marathon at Disneyland in Anaheim California. 

RUN

We run through all of the parks and get a look at the beautiful Paradise Pier in early morning.  Then we run the streets of Anaheim on the way to Angel Stadium.  We run through Angel Stadium and back to Disneyland where we cross the finish line to earn the Black Widow Half Marathon Medal and the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge Medal for completing both the 10K and Half this weekend.  While there are usually more sights to see in Angel Stadium, this was still a favorite and we are so happy we were there one last time.  Keep an eye out for fellow podcaster @RunEatRepeat!


EAT

Yes, we couldn’t help ourselves and went back to Sabroso but this time for their amazing Torta! That is a great sandwich!


DRINK

We headed out to Manhattan Beach and to the MB Post to experience an original cocktail made by one of the bartenders there.  It is amazing and delicious!
