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!

 

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 #27: 10K at the Walt Disney World Wine and DIne Half Marathon Weekend

In this Quick Bite, we recap the 10K at the 2017 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend. We did the 10K as part of the Two-Course Challenge.

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

It was a nice course that started through the streets around Walt Disney World, then took us to Hollywood Studios, along the water and the awesome scenery as the sun came up along the BoardWalk, and we finished around the World Showcase at Epcot.

Check out some scenery and a recap of what it was like along the course in this short quick bite.

Here is the Course Map that details where we ran on the 10K course:

I discovered what it was like to have some left in the tank at the end of a race to surge and finish ahead of the balloon ladies. For those who don’t know, I talk about who they are in this quick bite. They are such nice ladies that help us keep pace. I just wish I had reserved more for the half marathon because I think my surge here coupled with my previous knee injury had an impact on my Half Marathon performance the following day. More on that in an upcoming episode.
