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 Episode 58 Fast and Furriest 5k, National Empanada Day and National Beer Day

RUN

Aimee had to work, so Dana went to a favorite race of ours here locally, The Fast and the Furriest 5K at Hammond Stadium. It benefits The Gulf Coast Humane Society.  That race has it all.  It is a flat course and the race is held early in the morning before the humidity that is slowly ramping up for the summer gets too bad.  The real plus?  Dogs!  On the course, you get to run with so many adorable dogs. there are kiddie pools that double as water stops for the puppies.  And he saw a favorite puppy that we featured on a quick bite last year, Tegan the Tripawd! It’s a great way to get in a training run, get a cute medal, be around some great pups and support a cause at the same time!

EAT

It was National Caramel Popcorn Day this weekend, so Dana headed to Wild About Popcorn on Saturday after the race to pick us up a couple of bags to celebrate.  He brought home Dill Pickle - what an unexpected and incredible flavor.  It was tangy and tasted legitimately like a dill pickle.  The Salted Caramel Popcorn was so sweet and had amazing crunch from tasty caramel coating and just the right hint of salty goodness. Wild About Popcorn has great flavors and they do shipping as well as being a popular spot for locals.  Thanks for helping us celebrate!

It was National Empanada Day on Monday! So we headed to one of our favorite Cuban Bakeries, Azucar, here in Cape Coral.  We had their beef, chicken, and ham and cheese empanadas.  They do it right.  The crust is tender and flaky and the filling is warm and spiced just right.  The sauces are tangy and compliment the empanadas perfectly.  The beef empanada was served with a garlic and lime sauce while the other two were accompanied by a smoky mustard sauce.  This place is full of flavorful options, so if you are local and live in the Cape Coral area or dropping in for a visit, check it out!

DRINK

It was also National Beer Day on Sunday.  You know how we love beer!  We were still dreaming of the awesome beer we had in Lexington last weekend, so we headed to a couple of local spots to get some Lexington Brewing Company offerings.  Keg and Cow, a local bar has quite an extensive number of taps.  I think we counted 49!  There we got to celebrate with Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.  Then we moved on to 10 Twenty Five.  They are also a local bar named after their address with some great offerings on tap.  There we found the Kentucky Blackberry Porter that we got to try last week on the tour of the brewery.  It was amazing, just like we remembered!  Not overly sweet but true blackberry flavor.  It was a great way to celebrate National Beer Day!

RED Episode #54: Mebisode at 2019 Gasparilla Distance Classic

At Gasparilla Distance Classic Weekend, yes we ran a half marathon, but we also got to catch up with a very special guest...Meb Keflezighi!

He is the only man to win the New York City Marathon (2009), an Olympic Silver Medal (Athens 2004), and the Boston Marathon (2014).  We were so lucky to interview him before our race back in 2018 at Gasparilla, but Liam from Hawi Management arranged for us to have a few minutes with a very busy Meb Keflezighi to talk about his new book, 26 Marathons: What I Learned About Faith, Identity, Running, and Life from My Marathon Career.  Thank you, Liam!  It comes out on March 19th and we have to say that we have already pre-ordered it and can’t wait to read it and listen to the audiobook on our next long run after its release!

Meb is such a humble and genuine man. He has gone through so much adversity in his life and turned it into success.  He knows so much more than how to win, train for, and complete distance races.  He knows the importance of family and community.  He is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and this latest book is only one way he does just that.  He supports other runners, no matter their level, and gives back to the sport endlessly.  He even spent time telling us about a couple of races he is involved in coming up in California that give anyone a chance to accomplish, explore, and indulge. I hope we get to do them soon!

We thank Meb for the precious time we spent talking about these life lessons from the book as well as what he has on the horizon this year.  We know from our talk that this book is not just for runners, but a book for anyone who is looking to be successful in the marathon of life.
