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

RUN

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.

EAT

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...

DRINK

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


THAT’S A WRAP!

RED Episode #24 Levis JCC Sprint and Sip in Boca Raton

RUN

Last July, we went to Boca Raton to run the Levis JCC Run, Sweat, and Beers Race. We stumbled upon a great race.  It was on a Thursday, and that was the day I had off from work, and it was to support a community organization, so that is why we decided to go.  But we discovered a great organization, a well-organized run, and a great brewery at the after party.  So we registered for their inaugural Sprint and Sip, which was originally scheduled for September.  Hurricane Irma forced it to be postponed until March 2018. It is a great little nighttime race series, all contained within a park, and with beer at the after party.    This time, we got great little medals that double as bottle openers!  If you are in Boca Raton, check these little races out.

 

EAT

The reason I got so fascinated with this restaurant was that their logo looked like a comic book and caught my eye, but the food is so delicious at Kapow Noodle Bar.  The mural inside is beautiful and the food is next level.  We tried the Singapore Street Noodles. Their curry flavor and pork belly make me wish I could have it all over again as I write these show notes.  Mouthwatering goodness!

 

DRINK

Barrel of Monks Brewery is nestled in a little industrial park, but the vibe inside is comfortable with great lighting and barrels mounted on walls.  Swag that pays tribute to classic 80’s movies and video games is the icing on the cake.  The beer is so tasty.  We tried the Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout Den of Sins.  Amazing!

RUN

Last weekend, we participated in the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic.  The PGDC in Tampa, Florida has a variety of distances you can run during the weekend both timed races and races just for fun, and we selected the half marathon as the second part of our Treasured Chest Challenge (running the Donna Half Marathon and the Gasparilla Half Marathon).  It was a hot and humid day.  I’m not gonna lie to you.  I finished the race very slowly and it was HOT and HUMID.  I made the mistake of not hydrating enough before the race or during, so I suffered afterward, so much so that I almost had to skip the eating and drinking portion of our podcast.  But I rallied back to feature a couple of great places.

EAT

A place to celebrate our accomplishment? Kojak’s House of Ribs.  A South Tampa staple since 1978 and a recommendation coming directly from my camera man, who was born and raised there, Kojak’s ribs are a must when in Tampa.

DRINK

We headed to Tampa Bay Brewing Company to try a flight of locally brewed beer.  TBBC is in the heart of Ybor City in Tampa, which has a lot of interesting hot spots.  What did we drink to celebrate the completion of our Treasured Chest Challenge?  A flight, of course!
