RED Quick Bite #51: Tiki House in Key West


This Quick Bite continues our week-long look at trip we took to Key West to run the Southernmost Half Marathon at the beginning of October.  This continues our post-race celebration along Duval Street in Key West.

We used to watch Tiki Bar TV religiously.  We loved all the tiki drinks they would make.  We have a set of our own geeky tikis fromThink Geek.  So this place, Tiki House, was just our speed.  We wanted to hang out at this little place and have several tiki beverages, but we only had time to try their signature drink, the Zombie.  It was deadly delicious!  We will be back and you should stop by, too!  Great drinks, great atmosphere, and a great bartender make this a place to have a drink and stay a while.

RED Episode #18: Off the Road Again

Special thanks to our sponsor, Health I.Q.!  Health I.Q. celebrates the healthy choices people make by helping them find lower rates on life insurance.  If you are a weightlifter, swimmer, yogi, runner, or cyclist, you could get rewarded for the healthy lifestyle you are living.  For more information and to see if you qualify, go to or mention the promo code RED when you talk to a Health I.Q. agent at 1 (800) 549-1664.  A big thank you to them for sponsoring this week's show.


In this episode we show you what we do when we are off the road and training for upcoming races.  During the week, there are strength training, yoga, swimming, and running days.  This happens to be a day when we practice cadence drills.  A running drill in Jeff Galloway's training programs at, this drill helps you create quick turnover during run-walk-run intervals.


No, this week we are not indulging.  We make spring rolls, which are a low-calorie snack or lunch option.  

These spring rolls include:

Rice Paper Wrappers

Steamed Shrimp

Sliced Red Bell Pepper

Pre-Shredded Carrot

Sliced Hot House Cucumbers soaked in Rice Vinegar

Sliced Jalapeno

Cilantro Leaves

That is what was in our version, which was inspired by this recipe from Food Network .


This week, instead of a cocktail or craft beer, we show you what we do to jazz up water to keep us hydrated.  We add fruit to our water and often use no sodium sparkling water to vary up our beverages.  To have more fun, we put the water in these Star Wars tikis from ThinkGeek.
