Boy, oh boy, time flies when you’re having
run fun! It’s Sunday, and that means it’s already time for the Weekly Wrap! I’m linking up with Wendy over at Taking the Long way Home and Holly at HoHo Runs for this week’s wrap-up. Be sure to check out their blogs, along with the other linkers! You may just find some new blogs to love!
It’s been a little bit of a weird week with travel to California for the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon (recap coming soon). This is how my week went:
Monday: 5 mile run. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it was really hot and humid. Seriously, when is this weather going to improve???
Tuesday: 45 minute strength training workout and a short swim. Baby steps (or paddles, if you will).
Wednesday: 12-hour work day.
Thursday: 3 mile run followed by a short swim. The weather was much better and a lot less humid. Finally.
Friday: Travel day. My husband and I flew to San Francisco for the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon on Sunday. We enjoyed an amazing dinner on Half Moon Bay with one of my friends and stayed at her place for the night.
Saturday: Rest day and visits to some wineries. Awesome idea before a race. Or maybe not. We had a 4-pour tasting at Stag’s Leap and a 5-pour tasting at V. Sattui. V. Sattui turned into a 20- (or so) pour day. An exaggeration? I’ll plead the 5th. We checked into our Napa hotel, where we stayed for race weekend.
Sunday: 13.1 mile run. I’ll recap this amazing race later in the week. We were treated to a beautiful night sky the night of the race. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but that small dot to the left of the moon is Venus!
Tomorrow we will head to the Buena Vista winery for a complimentary V.I.P. tasting (I’m apparently an influencer’)! Buena Vista is the oldest winery in California, so we are really looking forward to this visit! From there, we will head up to our friends’ winery in Healdsburg, and then will spend the night in Santa Rosa.
On Tuesday we will head back to my friend’s house in the Bay area, and then will fly back home to reality on Wednesday.
It’s been a good week for me. A little bit of running, enjoying some fantastic wines, and meeting up with one of my best friends. The weather here in wine country has been amazing!
How was your week? Have y0u ever run a destination race? What’s your favorite?
