Welcome back to another episode of the Run Eat Drink Podcast!
On Sunday, August 6th, America's Coach and Olympian, Jeff Galloway, hosted a 3-hour running school in Orlando, Florida at the Track Shack. This gave me a great opportunity to share with all of you what his method is all about and why it works. It was such a great experience, and afterward we sampled some tasty food and beverages right around the corner at Santiago's Bodega.
In part three, we explore the resources that Jeff has to offer on his website. Anyone, from someone just getting started to an elite runner, can use his method to improve time or train to cross that finish line for the first time and feel great after the race. These resources include books, videos, a run-walk-run timer, resources for recovery like the BFF massager, and a variety of support from e-coaching to race retreats, local galloway training groups, and customized training.
He also mentions his JG 13.1 Race Weekend and I did not talk about it in the interview, mainly because I was so honored and a bit "starstruck" to be talking to Jeff, but we have run both Barb's 5K and the 13.1 for two years now. It is one of the best race weekends out there. There is no pressure because the course time limit is 4 hours and 30 minutes. It is run-walk-run friendly, of course. The Atlanta sites are amazing on the courses and the finish, with Jeff there to congratulate you whether you are first or the very last runner, is incredible, too. We cannot wait to feature that race on this podcast, and he has special guest and Olympic Gold Medalist, Billy Mills, coming to give a motivational and inspirational talk. It will be a great weekend!
In this episode, we also feature another amazing tapas dish from Santiago's Bodega, Patatas Bravas. It was tasty, and it was different from the version we had at Patio Tapas and Beer in Boca Raton at the Run, Sweat, and Beers 5K in July. Both are worth the trip, let me tell you!
