If you’re many years past college and have a handful of people outside your family who remember you from way back, you’re lucky. In my case, those people might recall my “trendy” middle school outfits including head-to-toe matching prints, french cuffs and Wigwam socks. They loved me with brown, frizzy hair and braces. They’ve seen me through bad boyfriends, sad breakups and shaky jobs; they’ve celebrated my special birthdays and supported the launch of my blog.
To toast 20+ years of friendship, we recently flew west for the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon. It was a beautiful course, with only a few hills, from a winery to the Sonoma city square. Fueled by rosé wine, fresh food and hearty laughs, check out our 13.1 under the warm summer sun.
Our favorite wineries were Jordan in Healdsburg and Scribe in Sonoma. (In these photos, we are the embodiment of R&R.)
Warming up before dawn at Domaine Carneros in Napa. Hello, beautiful.
Peace, love and running at the start. I wore a New Balance tank and compression tights by Opedix, to reduce lactic acid build-up and resulting soreness the next day. Highly recommend.
And, my FitBit Flex! (It tracks everything from steps and calories to sleep cycle, for those of us who are super curious to see how things measure up–or, just need a little motivation.)
My time? 1 hour, 58 minutes.
So, here’s a toast to power in numbers. And, the power of one.
