Wine, Running and Travel

Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner? Me neither. That also means I've been planning well into 2016 for running. Aside from the marathon, the other race I'm most excited for is the Wine Country Half Marathon in Loudoun County, Virginia.

The first weekend in June I'll be headed down for a little R&R in wine country. Does it get any better than that? The team reached out to me last year and unfortunately schedules didn't allow for us to coordinate.

I'll be experiencing the full VIP package and can't wait to tell you about it!

According to a press release, "Destination Races, based in Sonoma, California, is the pioneer producer of the Wine Country Half Marathon Series. Founded in 2004, the Wine Country Half Marathon Series consists of seven races across prestigious wine regions in North America. Offering unforgettable experiences on and off the course, including the popular post-race wine and music festival, runners travel far and wide for these boutique destination races. The race series attracts elite runners as well as food and wine enthusiasts who share their common bond of running and celebration. The Wine Country Half Marathon Series has limited fields in each event to ensure the participants and their guests can enjoy all the race weekends have to offer, including exclusive winery tours, plus receptions and dinners featuring the local bounty at esteemed wineries and other unique venues."
