RED Episode #26: 2018 Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon in Orlando


In this episode, we recap the Dark Side Half Marathon at the 2018 Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend. You can find out more about this Orlando and Walt Disney World race weekend on Run Disney’s website.

It was a nice course that started through the streets around Magic Kingdom (not inside the park), then took us inside Animal Kingdom and the beautiful new part featuring Avatar-themed adventures. We reached the 10K mark outside the park and headed to Hollywood Studios, along the water and the awesome scenery, down the BoardWalk, and we finished with a lap around the World Showcase at Epcot.


At the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, we had so many delicious offerings to choose from, and Mexico is one of our favorites. Chilaquiles was our selection and it did not disappoint.


Also in Mexico, was the tasty Rose Margarita.  It was not too “floral” in flavor, but a perfect blend of tequila and sweetness to complement our dish.

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.
