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.

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.

RED Quick Bite #25: Night Runner 270 Shoe Lights

This is the first Quick Bite from the 2017 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World. 

At the start of any race weekend at Walt Disney World, it is time to pick up our race bibs and check out the expo.

At the expo, we met Renata and Doug Storer, who were featured on Shark Tank for their Night Runner 270 Shoe Lights.  These are great for safety when running in early morning or after dark in the evening.   They took time to talk with us about their product.  Check out their website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube to find out more. 

My husband purchased these lights and we will be reviewing them in a later episode, but here, we interviewed Doug and Renata, not because it is a paid advertisement, but because we believe in staying safe as runners and this is a great product that helps us do just that, so we decided to feature it on the podcast.
