On Sunday 7/20 I ran the Napa To Sonoma Half Marathon. If you like wine, beautiful scenery and running then this race should be on your bucket list. If you hate wine and feeling like you're in a postcard then this race would be your nightmare and also we shouldn't ever hang out. I didn't have a stellar performance myself but I still can't get over what an awesome course and race this was. First off, the organization on race day exceeded my expectations. We parked down by the finish line, loaded onto a shuttle and were dropped off at Domaine Carneros.

I pushed through the last few miles and ended with a 2:04, a few seconds off my Zooma time. As long as I live in the Bay Area, this race will be an annual tradition. Honestly I don't think it gets much better as far as courses and scenery go. I think it sells out day of as well so if you're interested, stay on it!

When I found out it was 2:05 I was shocked but not that disappointed. It was a great weekend and fun race and that's what I expected on my tired legs. At least I am consistent. Afterwards I ate ALL the pancakes, showered up and met up with these two for ReNUUNion beers!
