When I was contacted a few weeks about a new run in Woodinville put on by Destination Races Wine Country Half Marathons, I was excited to try it but was a little worried because I am in no shape to run a half and I didn’t think I would have enough time to train. My last big run was the 10km up in Whistler in June and we’ve been indulging a lot this summer. And then I saw that there was a 2-person RELAY option. This means I can run half the half and get a partner to run the other half. So I’ve convinced the hubby to help me with this run and we are running our first race together and I couldn’t be more pleased. Friends have run the Destination Race in Kelowna BC and have said it is awesome and I checked out the route map for this run and it looks like we will be taken through some gorgeous Woodinville scenery.
Half a half marathon is just a little over 10km and for a fun course and fabulous post-race events, I can totally do this!
What could be better than running and wine? (For 21+ of course!)
Now I’m just trying to decide if I should run the first half or the second half. I’m thinking I will do better running the last half so I get to see the finish line but running the first half might leave me better rested for the after-party. Will I see you running next weekend too?
(PS. Disclosure: The hubby and I received complimentary running entries but I was not required to post and I will definitely have to RUN this one so the ideas and feelings I have about this endeavor are totally my own.)
(PPS. We have now had no school for 3 days and this is the longest summer I’ve spent with my kids since they started preschool. A run like this one couldn’t have come at a better time.)
