How much do you love cookies? Especially those at Gideon’s Bakehouse? Well, one Orlando local certainly took it to the next level by creating his own Gideon’s marathon course! He ran a full 26.2 miles between two Gideon’s Bakehouse locations.
Gregory Ryan planned the start line for his marathon run at Gideon’s Bakehouse in the Audubon Park’s East End Market to the finish line at the new Gideon’s location in Disney Springs. Ryan realized one day the distance between the bake shop’s locations was 20-something miles. Why not tack on a few extra miles on the route and turn it into a 26.2-mile course? He came up with a hashtag, #Gideons2Gideons and encouraged his social media followers to donate to the Cast Member Pantry.
He finished his run through Disney Springs. Then he stood in line for an hour at Gideon’s to order a peanut-butter, chocolate and banana cake. It’s certainly a fitting reward for this runner!
