IMG_20160625_171305Yesterday I attended the Wicked Wine Run which was 5k of hills through beautiful Stoller Vineyards in Dayton, OR.

BEAUTIFUL property!

BEAUTIFUL day!

 

 

But man….

Hills.  Where did all the hills come from???Screenshot_20160625-205231

 

After a week of stomach issues and 4# weight loss, participating in a 5k run wasn’t the smartest move.  But I finished it.  10 minutes slower than I had planned and with a few moments where I truly wanted to turn around and head back – afterall, heading BACK was DOWNHILL!!

 

 

 

 

IMG_20160625_202905Music was great, food was great, wine was excellent.  And I was surrounded by friends and family including meeting another Coach I “knew” through social media but hadn’t met in person!

 

A really special moment for me was crossing the finish line with my stepdad and my husband.  They stayed beside me the whole way even when I was walking slow as a turtle.  It meant a lot that my stepdad drove two hours each way to walk with me (I know he hoped I would be able to run it).  My nephew lapped us and all I really saw was a blurr running by.  Ah to be a teenager with all that energy!

 

IMG_20160625_215230I cannot wait to see the pictures when they are posted on Friday by the company who organizes the event.  I am sure I will grab some and post on here!

Look how cool my husband looks.  How does he look so cool when I was a sweaty mess?  I love you Mr.Hall.

 

Until next time,

PEAS OUT!
