RED Quick Bite #30: The Farmer at Maple Street Biscuit Company in Jax

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend got off to a great start.  We decided to experience as much of the weekend as possible by completing the Booby Trap Challenge, which is the 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon during the weekend.  And who are we kidding, we love the bling!  When we first featured The Maple Street Biscuit Company, we had just completed the 10K and the 5K.  And we were HUNGRY!  So we had a few of the tasty dishes this rustic community-focused restaurant has to offer.

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company.  Apple butter is my jam! Pun intended.  And The Farmer has tons of it along with tasty chicken, bacon, cheese, and a homemade biscuit to boot.  Guy Fieri perfected the hunch, but can I?

DRINK

No featured drinks in this episode, but The Maple Street Biscuit Company has tasty coffee as well as fountain drinks and more. 

THAT’S A WRAP!

RED Episode 14: Fit Foodie Flashback

This is a flashback episode.  We registered for the Fit Foodie 5K and planned to run it in September of 2017.  Then Hurricane Irma had other plans and it got postponed to December 2017.  If you all have been following me on social media, you know I had an injury during December as well as a crazy holiday schedule that delayed some of my podcasts.  So this is a look back at a fun race where we met some amazing people. 

RUN

The Fit Foodie 5K course had a long and tall bridge in Clearwater, so if this race series comes back and you need to practice some hills, it is a great one.  The John Hancock Village with food and beverages afterward was a great time.  If you are not local to Florida, they run this series all over the country.  So be sure to check it out near you if it comes back next year!

CHARITY

We talked with Jessica Bomberg, Vice President for Peer-to-Peer Fundraising with No Kid Hungry.  She talked about their amazing organization and what they do to fight childhood hunger. Please consider running next year, donating on their website, or volunteering to help their cause.  (Not a paid advertisement, we just think what they do is great.)

EAT

Next we stopped by to see Rene Marquis cook some Cauliflower Fried Rice.  It had Forbidden Rice, Tofu, Edamame, and more.  The smell of the soy sauce and spices would have made your mouth water and it is healthy.  It was a tasty dish and looked so easy to make! 

DRINK

Next up, Dunedin Brewery and a chat with Mike Graff from sales and distribution.  We tried an Apricot Peach American Wheat Beer they brought along and Mike helped us toast our accomplishment.  It is one of the most established breweries in Florida, so if you are ever in town, check them out!

RED Quick Bite #26: Sparkle Skirts

Our second stop at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend Expo was Sparkle Skirts.  Jill Collins, Expo Manager for Sparkle Skirts, took time to tell us what makes Sparkle Skirts great for running at any distance. 

I ran in a HikerChic Sparkle Skirt at the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend, and it was an awesome experience.  It totally eliminated the need for a running belt at the race. 

If you have any experience with Sparkle Skirts, please share it with us or with the world on social media with #sparkleskirts. Follow them on all their social media outlets @SparkleSkirts.
