Wine and Running… I’ve had better ideas in my life.

October 14, 2012

The first weekend of October is almost always an especially busy one for me.

For the past 5 years, I have been a participant in the San Jose Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon.

For the past 2 years, I have also enjoyed the benefits of the Santa Clara Valley Passport Weekend.

Consequently, my 1/2 marathon times have been suffering for the last two years.

But…

How could I ever pass this up?

The cheese was good, but this cab was great.

With wine like this, I don’t even need the shade… Okay… It helps.

Wine at Hecker Pass Winery… Lots of wine… Seriously… They offer WAY too much wine at their tasting room… An irresponsible amount… Just sayin’…

On the real…

I really do love these passport weekends…

I just wish they weren’t the same weekend of my 1/2 marathon.

For proof that wine and running don’t mix, check out these pictures (The best/worst picture is #18614127).

Two out of three…

September 19, 2011

After a long day of work last week, I was not in the best mood.

I still had to hit up the gym as part of my training for the Dodge San Jose Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon.

After literally running in place for an hour, all I wanted to do was take a nap…

But I knew I still had dinner to make.

So imagine my surprise when I came home to find Kara had made me this…

Simple pasta with marinara and a green salad with roasted beets. Simply awesome!

And poured me this…

Clos la Chance 2007 Estate Zinfandel

Sometimes, it’s the simple things that warm my heart.

I love my wife!

I just wish she didn’t make me watch this…

Oh well…

Two out of three ain’t bad.

Stay Rad,

Jeff
