Posts Tagged ‘San Jose Rock n Roll Half Marathon’

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.


How could I ever pass this up?


Wine and Chocolate Pairing at Sherman Cellars (The Downtown San Jose Tasting Room of Creekview Vineyards)


Wine and Cheese at J. Lohr


The cheese was good, but this cab was great.


Wine and Tri Tip Sandwiches at Guglielmo


Wine, Music, and Shade at Aver Family Vineyards


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


Wine and Whimsy at Satori


Oh… And fresh squeezed Zinfandel juice!


Wine and Sausage at Solis


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.


Spanish Wine and German Spice Mixes at Monte Verde Vineyards

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,



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…

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,
