RED Episode 77: Anchorage RunFest Half Marathon, Glacier Brewhouse, and Moosestooth Pub

RUN

Welcome back to Anchorage RunFest!  This week we recap our half marathon experience.  This race includes beautiful weather with the exception of a really strong head or tail wind from time to time and beautiful mostly off-road course.  It is mainly flat and scenery is simply amazing. Beautiful trails with picturesque water views, beautiful trees, and a paved course.  The time limit is so generous and you get to interact with others on the course that are running the full marathon and the 49k race.  Other runners on this course are so friendly!  The water and sports drink stops as well as port-a-potties are plentiful so you have what you need to be successful.  The medal is a beautiful metallic purple reflective color.  And we ran into Bart Yasso on the way back to the finish line in downtown Anchorage.    There was a complimentary beer from Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse after the race was over.  We’d come back and do this one again!

EAT

After the half marathon we really indulged by celebrating at Glacier Brewhouse.  We’d say that this is a special occasion kind of meal.  Good news:  reservations are taken on Open Table and we highly recommend them.  We had an appetizer of Smoked Salmon Dip that was delicious.  Alder wood grilled entrees are plentiful on this menu, including a Ribeye we had.  We also sampled the Herb-Crusted Alaska Halibut.  We each added a half pound of the Alaskan King Crab Legs because when in Alaska... you know what to do! We finished off the meal with the Original Peanut Butter Pie.  Everything was so tasty and Travis was a great server!  We recommend this place for sure.  We will be talking about their beer on an upcoming Quick Bite, so stay tuned!

DRINK

Moose’s Tooth serves Broken Tooth Brewing Beer and when we were waiting for and eating the amazing pizza that we talked about on Episode 76 , we sampled a few of their original beers.  Dana’s offerings were cleverly named Van Damme Belgian Strong Ale and Darth Delirium Belgian-Style Stout, while Aimee had Chugach Sessions Cream Ale and Hard Apple Ale. They have a wide variety and something for every palate.  We wanted to try them all!

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Anchorage because we couldn’t fit all the amazing food and beverage in one episode, as you can already tell!

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 Quick Bite #45: The Old Seelbach Bar in Louisville

Welcome to Louisville, Kentucky! We are here to run a race that supports the Navy Seals Foundation and attend the Bourbon and Beyond Festival!

RUN

In this Quick Bite, we are just arriving in Louisville.  We check into the Seelbach Hiltonas we prepare for our Joggin for Frogmen 5Kto benefit the Navy Seals Foundation on Saturday. But first, we need to explore our hotel!


EAT

Just inside of the Seelbach Hilton, we found one of the top 50 bars in the world! Right at our hotel, can you believe it? And their food is just one reason why.  Can you say Jerk Chicken Tater Tots? We can say that these are on the "must-eat" list at this bar.


DRINK

We had to try toe Seelbach cocktail, featuring Old Foresterbourbon. Wow.  It is one with the right mixture of sweet and spice to start the weekend off right!


THAT’S A WRAP!
