Race-cations – Wine & Dine!

The hubby and I have been experimenting with something called race-cations. It’s exactly like it sounds, a vacation centered around a race. We did that for OBX and Cape Cod a few years ago. It’s a really fun idea and you get to see parts of a new city you may never see.

Our next race-cation will be… drum roll please…. Disney World!! Yes, that’s right Walt Disney World. After lots of discussion, we will be running the Disney, Wine and Dine Half Marathon, during the Food and Wine Festival this November. (BTW… it’s already sold out)

someecards.com - Let's run 13.1 miles around Disney World because no trip to Disney is complete until someone cries.

When I think of some of my favorite things in the entire world, this event checks off quite a few. It’s got Wine, Running, Wine, Disney World, Wine, Fun Costumes, and did i mention Wine? Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…. it did! One of my best friends, Rockymtpearls (Amy) and her husband will be joining us for the weekend! She and I will be running together! (She’s also amazing cause she and her husband introduced me to my hubby)

That’s really it! In 10 days I’m doing the RnR USA Half Marathon in Washington, DC and I’m excited! Training has had it’s ups and downs. Overall it’s gone well and I’m looking forward to brunch afterwards 🙂

Do you race-cation? Where have you gone? Is there a race-cation on your bucket list? Do you run with friends?

  1. Wine & Dine was how I got my husband to Disney. I’m sure you will be hooked and sign up for more Disney race-cations in the future 🙂

  2. I think the BOLDERBoulder is also sort of a race-cation! Cannot wait for Wine and Dine, though. I know it’s going to be a blast!

    • For BOLDERBolder, we’re going to see your gorgeous faces! There just so happens to be an awesome race that weekend. 🙂 But I see your point.

  3. Very cool! I ran the OBX Flying Pirate Half last year – loved it! And I’ve run Disney several times, but not the wine race yet.

    • Thanks! I’m excited! 🙂 Flying Pirate looks like a fun race. I saw your Goofy Challenge, that looks crazy awesome!
