RED Episode #36: Cape 5K and a Fundraiser at No. 3 Craft Brews


In June, we started the Run Disney Virtual Running Shorts Race Series.  This is an Incredibles-themed series of 5Ks this summer.  Complete one in June, July, and August plus get a bonus medal.  

For the month of August, and the Dash and Jack medal, we ran a local 5K, the Cape 5K. We got a free entry for it because we volunteered at the water stop in a 5K for 3D Racing, a local organization that helps certify courses and time races, earlier this summer.  Rachel, the owner of our local running store, The Run Shoppe, and the one who helped us find the right shoes almost 9 years ago when we started running, heads up that organization as well.  Can’t beat that, right?  

The course was flat and shady, which can help us during those long, hot, and humid summer months in Florida.  It was also the second half of our long training run. We got up early in the morning and did 3.4 miles in the neighborhood before the race, so we could get our full 6.5 miles from the training schedule for the Wine and Dine 2-Course Challenge.



We ate delicious ribs after the race!  Normally, we feature a restaurant where you might be able to go and explore some local food.  This episode is a bit different because we headed to No. 3 Craft Brews to help support a fundraiser for a local firefighter who lost his life earlier this summer. No. 3 collaborates with local food trucks to bring together great beer and food, so, while this particular food item was not something that is normally here, usually, on a weekend, you can find something great in the world of local food trucks to explore here.  We hope these ribs make a repeat appearance because they were meaty, smokey, and cooked perfectly!


No. 3 Craft Brews collaborated with Big Blue Brewing to release “0603” Smoked Porter.  0603 was the badge number of Michael Camelo, Jr., the firefighter who lost his life suddenly and tragically about two months ago.  100% of the proceeds go to the family of this fallen hero.  This Porter pairs perfectly with the ribs.

If you want to support the family of Michael Camelo, Jr., you can go to No. 3 Craft Brews or Big Blue to toast in his honor or you can contribute to the GoFundMe page set up to help support his family.

RED Episode #22: Gasparilla Half and Treasured Chest Challenge

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.


Last weekend, we participated in the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic.  The PGDC in Tampa, Florida has a variety of distances you can run during the weekend both timed races and races just for fun, and we selected the half marathon as the second part of our Treasured Chest Challenge (running the Donna Half Marathon and the Gasparilla Half Marathon).  It was a hot and humid day.  I’m not gonna lie to you.  I finished the race very slowly and it was HOT and HUMID.  I made the mistake of not hydrating enough before the race or during, so I suffered afterward, so much so that I almost had to skip the eating and drinking portion of our podcast.  But I rallied back to feature a couple of great places.


A place to celebrate our accomplishment? Kojak’s House of Ribs.  A South Tampa staple since 1978 and a recommendation coming directly from my camera man, who was born and raised there, Kojak’s ribs are a must when in Tampa.


We headed to Tampa Bay Brewing Company to try a flight of locally brewed beer.  TBBC is in the heart of Ybor City in Tampa, which has a lot of interesting hot spots.  What did we drink to celebrate the completion of our Treasured Chest Challenge?  A flight, of course!
