In June, we started the Run Disney Virtual Running Shorts Race Series. This is an Incredibles-themed series of 5Ks this summer. Complete one in June, July, and August plus get a bonus medal.
For the month of August, and the Dash and Jack medal, we ran a local 5K, the Cape 5K. We got a free entry for it because we volunteered at the water stop in a 5K for 3D Racing, a local organization that helps certify courses and time races, earlier this summer. Rachel, the owner of our local running store, The Run Shoppe, and the one who helped us find the right shoes almost 9 years ago when we started running, heads up that organization as well. Can’t beat that, right?
The course was flat and shady, which can help us during those long, hot, and humid summer months in Florida. It was also the second half of our long training run. We got up early in the morning and did 3.4 miles in the neighborhood before the race, so we could get our full 6.5 miles from the training schedule for the Wine and Dine 2-Course Challenge.
We ate delicious ribs after the race! Normally, we feature a restaurant where you might be able to go and explore some local food. This episode is a bit different because we headed to No. 3 Craft Brews to help support a fundraiser for a local firefighter who lost his life earlier this summer. No. 3 collaborates with local food trucks to bring together great beer and food, so, while this particular food item was not something that is normally here, usually, on a weekend, you can find something great in the world of local food trucks to explore here. We hope these ribs make a repeat appearance because they were meaty, smokey, and cooked perfectly!
No. 3 Craft Brews collaborated with Big Blue Brewing to release “0603” Smoked Porter. 0603 was the badge number of Michael Camelo, Jr., the firefighter who lost his life suddenly and tragically about two months ago. 100% of the proceeds go to the family of this fallen hero. This Porter pairs perfectly with the ribs.
If you want to support the family of Michael Camelo, Jr., you can go to No. 3 Craft Brews or Big Blue to toast in his honor or you can contribute to the GoFundMe page set up to help support his family.
THAT’S A WRAP
