RED Episode #47: 2018 Jeff Galloway Half Marathon

Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia and the 5th Anniversary of the JeffGallowayHalfMarathonWeekend! It is half marathon time!

RUN

This episode features the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon on Sunday of race weekend. In this race, it was chilly, wet, and sometimes raining, but we got to see some of the best sites of Atlanta.  The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Center, the Atlanta Beltline, the hilly and beautiful Virginia Highlands, and the big finish in Piedmont Park.  Jeff was waiting for after the finish for a photo and the medal was unbelievable!  It was the biggest I have ever seen.  What a great comeback after the injury last year!  It is a friendly, no-pressure way to introduce yourself to this distance with so much support.  It is a must-do for any run-walk-runner.

EAT

We featured small bites and a great mixed drink from The Wrecking Bar Brewpublast year, and since this was a comeback, we had to come back here to feature their awesome brunch.  Country Fried Steak was on the menu and it was perfect.  The gravy included the made in-house cheddarwurst we originally tasted in the corn pups last year. Perfectly cooked steak with a crispy breading was at the heart of this dish topped with a runny egg like my daddy used to make for me as a kid.  So tasty!  We had a couple of other items from their menu, so stay tuned for other tasty brunch treats from this awesome Atlanta find.

DRINK

Did we mention that The Wrecking Bar Brewpub also has a brewery right on site and we tried two of their tasty original beers?  Maltlanta Doppel Sticke and Choco Mountain Imperial Breakfast Stout were our choices.  They are both high ABV but delicious.  Maltlanta had caramel and biscuit notes and Choco Mountain had strong coffee flavors as it had barrel-aged coffee beans used in the brewing process.  We have more to show you from their beer menu as well as cocktails on future quick bites!

THAT’S A WRAP
