Back in 2011 I went from being a total non-runner to choosing this race as my goal while fundraising in memory of my friend Kerry who lost her battle with Leukemia and every year it’s a reminder of how far I’ve come and all the amazing friends I’ve made along the way (Wine & Dine 2011 is actually where I met Jenn, Daniel & Patrick who you’re probably familiar with from all my race photos!).
I have to admit I REALLY love this race (running, food and wine?! What’s bad about that!), so I made it a point to do my best to be in front of a computer when the AP/DVC early registration opened this week (I did have a moment of sticker shock when I saw the price, but I knew I’d regret not registering!) and fortunately I was able to get in (the early registration spots were gone in 18 minutes!).
The best part is that this year Jason will be joining me!
Because of his previous job in New York, Jason has never been able to come to Wine & Dine weekend or go to the Food & Wine Festival at all and I can’t wait to share it all with him!
Regular registration opens at noon on Tuesday, March 17th, so if you’re considering registering (or just love reading race recaps!), I invite you to take a look back at my experiences at Wine & Dine over the past 4 years! (I also suggest you be ready and waiting at your computer when registration opens, you need to have fast fingers to secure your spot!)
