Dash and WINE
Ok so it’s really Wine and Dash, but we did dash before we wined.
Tonight I did something BOLD and joined a running group. I randomly got an email from a work contact about this meet-up and it sounded right up my alley. I present to you…WINE AND DASH, the best new thing in running.
The gist is this. Runners meet up at a local restaurant, Cafe Cattura, and are given the option of running 1, 2 or 4 miles. All paces and abilities are welcome. You go out, run, sweat and enjoy the company of other runners and then you go back to the restaurant and are welcomed with icy towels, delicious cheeses, the coolest t-shirt ever (how badass is that logo?!), and WINE. Forget water after a run in the 95 degree humidity (although they had that too). Wine is the answer.
I really enjoyed the run and meeting folks who were also interested in hitting the pavement in August. We all agreed that the treadmill was getting a little old and we just couldn’t muster up the courage to run outside alone (the heat can really mess with one’s motivation). I think we all suffered a little bit, but running towards a carrot in the shape of a big ‘ole glass of Sauvingnon Blanc really makes the discomfort a lot more tolerable.
Looking forward to next week’s run…I hear Pinot Grigio calling my name!
