Water to Wine Half Marathon Recap

Finally posting some photos from the Water to Wine half marathon a few weeks ago! Better late than never right? Located in the beautiful wine country right outside of Healdsburg in Santa Rosa, we had so much fun at this race. Personally, I think its so much more fun to run with girlfriends. We chatted and encouraged each other the whole time, and the wine at the end was a major motivator to get to the finish line. I didn’t set a goal time, but we finished in 2:04. With another marathon in the books, I’m going to set a goal of 1:50 for my next half coming up in October. Time to train!!

Post race we decided to do a wine a food pairing at the winery (Kendall Jackson). The food and wine were both phenomenal! Not to mention, the winery is the perfect setting for a race.

Throwing my feet up after the race was much needed! Also swapped my asics for these Nikes. The most comfortable shoe ever.

Thanks to run wine country for putting on such a fun event! I would definitely recommend this race to those in the area.

Do you have a race coming up? Please do share!

I have a few other marathon articles and training guides: here, here , here, here and here. Happy reading!
