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

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’…

Martin Ranch. They had wine too.

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).

Stay Rad,

    Aaaaaand this is why I never did the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half when I lived there, even though it was insanely convenient. Passport weekend wins.
