RED Episode #69: Your Running Mantras, Point 57, & Big Storm Brewing Category 3

RUN

We asked:  What are your running mantras when things get challenging on a run or during a period of injury?  You submitted some great feedback.  We share and discuss what keeps you going when things get tough.

EAT

It was a training week for us, so we explored and indulged in a local restaurant, Point 57, right here in Cape Coral.  We were there for brunch, but they also have the regular menu available all day.  Aimee had the Cast Iron Ribeye with a blue cheese fondue in a skillet served with an onion, green bean and bacon hash.  Dana had the Crispy Pork Shank with blue cheese grits and apple chutney.  So tasty!

DRINK

At Point 57, there are some pretty tasty cocktails and local brews on tap.  Aimee had the Dead on Bourbon, which is worth ordering for the presentation in a smoking skull, rye whiskey, coffee flavors, and a bit of spice.  The Summertime in Mexico is tasty as well. Tequila, spiced pear, cardamom, lemon, honey, and maple make this a refreshing and unique cocktail on a hot day.  Dana had Islamorada Sandbar Sunday, which made us recall the trip we took to their taproom last October.

Yes, we also had a great time this weekend at Big Storm celebrating the release of their Category 3 Belgian Trippel.  Thanks to everyone who was able to join us live!  At 9.5 ABV, the darker golden body and strength of Cat 3 is far and away heavier than Category 1, and vastly different from Category 2, with its dried fruit notes and darker body.  We also got a bonus release to try, Bromosa Tangerine Brut IPA.  Yep, Aimee loved it!  Shocking! Tangerine flavor with a bit of hop but not too much on the end of the sip, it was not overly sweet, but the fruit aroma and flavor were just right for a hot Florida day.

RED Episode 55: THE SAINT PATRICK’S DAY EPISODE! Training for Run the Bluegrass & Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery

Welcome to our first official audio episode of the Run Eat Drink Podcast!

RUN

This week, we are off the road and training for our next big race!  We are excited to get to Run the Bluegrass at the end of this month in Lexington, Kentucky.  Jeff Galloway is our coach and he has assigned us a long run of 15 miles.  We talk about why.

EAT

We had a Saint Patrick’s Day pre-party the night before our run at  Nice Guys Pizza with their Ruben Pizza, which was amazing.  After completing our 15-miler, we needed celebratory food, of course!Our post-run food was from another favorite place, Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery. Shannon Yates, owner and chef, was putting together killer Corned Beef and Cabbage, and with a little twist that makes it unique and tasty.  And as a bonus, we ran into Morgan Wright, or Morgan the Moose, our local celebrity from American Ninja Warrior, so we were able to wish him good luck as he heads to Atlanta for ANW Season 11!

DRINK

Nevermind Awesome Bar and Eatery collaborated with Big Top Brewing in Sarasota to create Shamrock Shannon Stout.  This was a great way to celebrate completing the 15 miles.  Why?  It is smooth, not bitter, and it has been aged in Tullamore Dew barrels!
