I had an amazing racecation in Napa Valley. I was picked to be a race ambassador for the Zooma Women’s Race Series Napa Valley Half Marathon last Fall and I’ve been excited about running this race ever since.
We enjoyed lunch and wine tasting at V. Sattui Friday.
We also visited St. Suprey.
Friday evening we picked up our packets and there was a “mocktail” party at the hotel.
Saturday morning the race started at 7am. We took the shuttle from the hotel. The weather was perfect. It was around 54 degrees when we started.
In the distance we could see the hot air balloons over the vineyards. So beautiful!
The race isn’t huge, so the course isn’t crowded. The whole vibe of the race from start to finish was so welcoming. There were lots of racecationers running.
We finished the race and both agreed we really enjoyed it. After returning to the hotel and resting for a bit we headed out to visit a few more wineries. Heitz Cellars produces some of my favorite wine, so that was must for me.
We decided to be spontaneous and try one we had never heard of before and stopped at Whitehall Lane. Loved it! They having a surprisingly large selection of great wine.
We finished the evening with dinner at Chef Michael Chiarello’s Bottega. Dinner was delicious! Before heading out of town we stopped for breakfast at Chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery. It is worth the wait in the long line! It was a perfect weekend of running, wine tasting, great food, and beautiful weather.
Feetures socks was one of the sponsors of the Zooma Napa Valley Half Marathon, so I decided to share the love and giveaway a pair of Feetures socks. I love the pretty turquoise color. FYI, they are size medium.
