RED Episode #42: 2018 Wine and Dine 10K at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida

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!


In this episode, we run the 10K on Saturday of theRunDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  The course is relatively flat.  The first 3 miles was on the road and the last three featured the World Showcase at Epcot.  The weather was uncharacteristically cold, thanks to a front passing through this weekend.  This was the first time my cameraman and I were separated by a corral. But he would not let me fall back to his corral.  So, I had to do this one on my own, while he narrated most of the course for you.


We visited the Coastal Eatsbooth at the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival to have their tasty seafood offerings.  A fondue of shrimp scampi, a luscious crab cake with Asian flavors in a cream sauce on top, and a perfectly-cooked scallop with a corn succotash.  Not a bad first stop on the World Showcase!


After the 10K, we celebrated with a beer.  That may not be the recommended post-race recovery beverage, but we were so happy to complete the first part of our mission here, that we could not help but celebrate with an offering at the post-race party,  Raspberry Rose Alefrom Playalinda Brewing Company out of Titusville, Florida.  Low ABV and a not-too-sweet yet hint of tart raspberry flavor made this a great beverage to sip on while recovering from the 10K.
