This week, we start to recap our amazing 2019 Wine and DIne Half Marathon Weekend. We start with all the pre-race festivities, including Packet Pickup, Expo, and a chat with Olympian and America’s Coach, Jeff Galloway. He discusses considerations for those of us who are running the 2-Course Challenge and it applies for anyone who may be thinking about it in 2020!
Carb-loading for your races at Disney? Look no further than Harvest Bistro. Located on the ground floor of the Hilton Bonnet Creek, it has something for everyone in the family, including a dynamite breakfast buffet that we have had before as well. We dined there on not one but two separate occasions during our stay, so we had the chance to sample pasta from both the regular and Marathon Weekends menus. All four dishes were so flavorful and filling! What a great way to get fueled and ready for a successful race.
Myth Bar inside the Hilton Bonnet Creek is an amazing bar and has a special place in our hearts because that is where we uploaded our first podcast episodes and shared them to Apple Podcasts (formerly known as iTunes...). Have you tried their charcuterie plate? If not, you should. But, more importantly, since this is the drink segment of our show, we have to talk about the Goldmine as one of the best celebratory beverages we have ever had. It is tobacco-infused bourbon, ginger ale, and “gunpowder” which is cocoa powder. It is strong, smokey but with a hint of sweetness. Such a great beverage to sip in the bar right by the fire pit while watching the Walt Disney World fireworks show, without having to fight crowds!!
THAT’S A WRAP
