Welcome back to Anchorage RunFest! This week we recap our half marathon experience. This race includes beautiful weather with the exception of a really strong head or tail wind from time to time and beautiful mostly off-road course. It is mainly flat and scenery is simply amazing. Beautiful trails with picturesque water views, beautiful trees, and a paved course. The time limit is so generous and you get to interact with others on the course that are running the full marathon and the 49k race. Other runners on this course are so friendly! The water and sports drink stops as well as port-a-potties are plentiful so you have what you need to be successful. The medal is a beautiful metallic purple reflective color. And we ran into Bart Yasso on the way back to the finish line in downtown Anchorage. There was a complimentary beer from Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse after the race was over. We’d come back and do this one again!
After the half marathon we really indulged by celebrating at Glacier Brewhouse. We’d say that this is a special occasion kind of meal. Good news: reservations are taken on Open Table and we highly recommend them. We had an appetizer of Smoked Salmon Dip that was delicious. Alder wood grilled entrees are plentiful on this menu, including a Ribeye we had. We also sampled the Herb-Crusted Alaska Halibut. We each added a half pound of the Alaskan King Crab Legs because when in Alaska... you know what to do! We finished off the meal with the Original Peanut Butter Pie. Everything was so tasty and Travis was a great server! We recommend this place for sure. We will be talking about their beer on an upcoming Quick Bite, so stay tuned!
Moose’s Tooth serves Broken Tooth Brewing Beer and when we were waiting for and eating the amazing pizza that we talked about on Episode 76 , we sampled a few of their original beers. Dana’s offerings were cleverly named Van Damme Belgian Strong Ale and Darth Delirium Belgian-Style Stout, while Aimee had Chugach Sessions Cream Ale and Hard Apple Ale. They have a wide variety and something for every palate. We wanted to try them all!
THAT’S A WRAP
Stay tuned for more from Anchorage because we couldn’t fit all the amazing food and beverage in one episode, as you can already tell!
