Thanks to all our patrons and everyone in the Runcation Nation for your support and encouragement. Because of you, we have been able to keep the show going over the last two years, and now that the races are returning, we look forward to meeting up with you, too!
We want to shout out everyone in the Runcation Nation who ran for The Donna Foundation. Whether you ran virtually in Jacksonville with Dana or offered crowd and online support during our live chats, you all made it a wonderful weekend. Dana celebrated love over fear and had an incredible weekend because of all of you.
While many of you ran DONNA, Darlene put another state on the map, and she is so close she can taste the finish line! Congrats on your Mississippi River Half, Darlene!

This week, we highlight the start of the 2023 Destination DONNA Marathon Weekend. Dana flew solo in Jacksonville, so he discusses the experience of the 5K because it had a completely different venue and feel this year. Did he love it? Would he want the course to be the same in 2024? Find out.
We featured Wicked Barley back on Episode 51 for food and beverage. Dana wanted to kick off the weekend right, and since he was staying mere moments away from this favorite of ours, he returned to have some tasty food at Wicked Barley Brewing in Jacksonville. Is it still the same menu? Is the quality still next-level? He gives his honest review here on the show.
Dana was also right around the corner from Veterans United Craft Brewery and took the opportunity to revisit various favorite styles from the menu. He also checked out the space and some live music there, too. Has it changed? Is it still a favorite? These are questions he answered this week.
THAT’S A WRAP!
Of course, there is more to explore, and we can’t wait to bring you this year’s finds from the weekend! Stay tuned for a recap after this emotional and incredible race weekend.
