RED Episode # 79: Mike Bankhead from the Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards Running Facebook Group


This week we share your listener feedback about keeping training enjoyable when it gets tough.  Thank you to everyone who sent in a tip, trick, or suggestion!  

On this episode, we got to test out our really great audio equipment and talk to a special guest.  When things get tough in your training season, it is important to be part of a training group or online group that understands and can provide support and advice.  The Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards FaceBook group is one of the best.  It was born out of the Be Our Guest Podcast, which is a fantastic podcast about all things Disney (Shout out to Mike, Pam, and Rikki!).  The Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards group on FaceBook started because of a love for all things RunDisney, but members also support each other in all running endeavors and races.

We are sharing our interview with Mike Bankhead, who created the Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards running group on Facebook almost six years ago!  It is almost 2000 members strong.  Mike talks about his journey with running, creating the group, and shares his tips and tricks for a Disney runcation or vacation!  He emphasizes that this group has forged very special friendships and members who cheer each other on have become like family to each other.  He also shares his favorite places to stay and where to eat after you have run off all those calories!

He also shared great resources like The Magic for Less Travel, to help you book a magical Disney vacation and The Mouse for Less, which is the blog that Rikki, co-host of the Be Our Guest Podcast along with Mike Rahlmann, helps to maintain and that gives you tips, tricks, information, and great resources about Disney, too!


Are there races we should try?  How do you mix up your training to stay motivated for the longer runs?  Want to reach us with a tip, trick, or recommendations?  Our email is Or you can call with your “runcation” tips at 941- 677-2733.

RED Quick Bite #54: Wine and Dine Episodes Coming and a Special Thank You to Everyone!

We fully intended to have episodes out this week from our incredible weekend at Walt Disney World for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  We had to hit the ground running in our day jobs, and that caused a slight delay.  

We will have the episodes out next week and we think they will be worth the wait!  So please, stay tuned.

Also, thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement through each and every episode, but especially this weekend.  It meant so much to us!

Tune in next week for some awesome shows!

RED Episode #27: Star Wars 10K at Walt Disney World in Orlando


In this episode, we recap the Star Wars 10K that was part 1 of our First Order Challenge in Orlando at Walt Disney World. 

You can find out more about this Orlando and Walt Disney World race weekend on Run Disney’s website.

It was a nice and flat course that started through the streets around Magic Kingdom (not inside the park), then took us inside Hollywood Studios, along the water and the awesome scenery of the BoardWalk, and we finished running through a short portion of the World Showcase at Epcot.


At the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, we had so many delicious offerings to choose from, and the Northern Lights (the Canadian area of the World Showcase).  We headed there for dessert.  Can you say warm maple pound cake with peach compote and sweet corn gelato?  We can...


Also in the area best known as Canada but currently known as the Northern Lights during the festival, we discovered that there were several tasty beverages that we needed to try.  One was a Maple Popcorn Milkshake featuring Crown Royal Maple Whiskey.  And of course there was a beer flight, but this one has a special place in our hearts because Unibroue beer helped us recover from Hurricane Irma in 2017.  Here’s what we got to sample:

Unibroue Maudite Amber Ale

Unibroue À Tout Le Monde Saison

Unibroue Éphémère White Ale
