“Wining” + Running makes for a perfect day!
I have to say I am having a great “end of the year, birthday month”! I was recently invited to pretty cool birthday party hosted by my new friend Carrie from KOZ Events. The party was a day of wine tasting and running. Yes, it’s possible and yes, it was perfect.
I had NO IDEA Ramona had wineries! We ran from Carrie’s place to Kohill Winery, Principe Di Tricase Winery and later to the Cactus Star Home (links listed below).
Even though there were three stops, the “running” tour took most of the day. Each stop was approximately a mile away. Carrie had it all set up. You could run, bike or shuttle to each spot. One person set up the cheese, sweets and crackers at each stop, each person had a wrist band for wine tasting ($1 each spot) and the running route marked and easy to follow.
If you are looking for something cool to do with your running buddies, the Ramona Wineries is it. The area is pretty secluded and if you’re lucky, the weather is perfect. I mean, it’s San Diego, what more could you ask for?
CHECK OUT 4 REASONS to do a RUN AND WINE Event
Learn how wine is created and what to look for in a good wine. The owner’s of each winery love talking about wine, what they are working on and how they created each bottle they sell. Best way to learn and be inspired.
Drink wine with friends. For me, hanging with friends and reminiscing about the season is fantastic. Yes, I am a running nerd. So, hanging with like-minded athletes and sharing next year’s goals is so much fun!
Team building. Another plus about this wine tour, there were a few of us who train together AND we are on the same competitive team. The only time we see each other is on race day. It was nice to sit and have a glass of wine with “the ladies” my team and bond!
End of season celebration. For the serious runners and those serious about running, I am pretty sure your running season is all planned out, right? Why not plan a “end of the season” party/event with a “Running Wine Tour”? It’s all of the above + a celebration you survived another running season.
