RED Episode # 79: Mike Bankhead from the Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards Running Facebook Group

WE RUN, EAT, and DRINK DISNEY on THIS WEEK’S SHOW!

This week we share your listener feedback about keeping training enjoyable when it gets tough.  Thank you to everyone who sent in a tip, trick, or suggestion!  

On this episode, we got to test out our really great audio equipment and talk to a special guest.  When things get tough in your training season, it is important to be part of a training group or online group that understands and can provide support and advice.  The Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards FaceBook group is one of the best.  It was born out of the Be Our Guest Podcast, which is a fantastic podcast about all things Disney (Shout out to Mike, Pam, and Rikki!).  The Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards group on FaceBook started because of a love for all things RunDisney, but members also support each other in all running endeavors and races.

We are sharing our interview with Mike Bankhead, who created the Be Our Guest Podcast Lizards running group on Facebook almost six years ago!  It is almost 2000 members strong.  Mike talks about his journey with running, creating the group, and shares his tips and tricks for a Disney runcation or vacation!  He emphasizes that this group has forged very special friendships and members who cheer each other on have become like family to each other.  He also shares his favorite places to stay and where to eat after you have run off all those calories!

He also shared great resources like The Magic for Less Travel, to help you book a magical Disney vacation and The Mouse for Less, which is the blog that Rikki, co-host of the Be Our Guest Podcast along with Mike Rahlmann, helps to maintain and that gives you tips, tricks, information, and great resources about Disney, too!

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Quick Bite #85: Grilled Avocado and Ahi Tuna at Splitsville

RunDisney’s Virtual Race Series celebrates 80 years of Marvel. While we were up at Disney completing the August 5K in the series, we got some great food at Splitsville in Disney Springs.    

Mike Crave, General Manager, sat down with us and took us through some of his favorites from the menu. The Grilled Avocado and Ahi Tuna is a unique dish that Mike shared with us.  A halved avocado is grilled and filled with a generous portion of seared ahi tuna tossed in spicy kimchee ponzu sauce. it is topped with scallions and spicy mayo and served with sticky rice and crispy wonton chips.  We had the most fun with Mike as he had us flip the warm avocado and squeeze it onto the sushi rice so that it mixed with the ahi tuna to create the perfect bite!  Those wanton chips topped with all the goodness... it is a must for the sushi lover in your life!

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Splitsville.  Mike, was so nice to sit down with us and give us a tour of his favorites from the menu.  There were so many amazing flavors that we couldn’t fit them all in one episode, so we will be sharing them as quick bites.  Everyone should know about the elevated food, drinks, and fun at Splitsville.

RED Quick Bite #84: Grilled Salmon with Mango Chutney at Splitsville in Disney Springs

RunDisney’s Virtual Race Series celebrates 80 years of Marvel. While we were up at Disney completing the August 5K in the series, we got some great food at Splitsville in Disney Springs.  

Mike Crave, General Manager, sat down with us and took us through some of his favorites from the menu.  One of them is the Grilled Salmon with Mango Chutney.  The salmon is grilled and tastes so fresh atop the sticky rice.  The broccoli is topped with a flavorful garlic butter sauce.  This entree would be great after a long run or actually anytime. (Bonus hint:  Mike says it is great blackened!)
