Napa Valley Turkey Trot and Lot’s Of Rain

The 2nd Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot was this past weekend.  Faith and I have been so looking forward to running this race again for our second time.  A beautiful morning in the Napa Valley, the cool crisp,  late Fall air and the sun coming up and shining down on us as we run 3.2 miles.  WAIT … what?  Hold on, let’s back this up. If you live hear or have been paying attention to our California rain situation, you would know that we are in dire need of water and a good hearty rain season.  Did we think that on the day we were to get up early and head out for this event, that it would be that particular day the good graces of mother nature would pour down on us?  {Literally}. Well, she did.  Waking at 5:3o a.m. to make coffee, I stared out the window trying…  Read More…

Napa Valley Turkey Trot 2014

It’s back and it’s in the wine country.  The 2nd Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot.   So excited, I loved running this 5k with daughter last year.  It is located at the Napa Valley College.  The route is great, just enough flat, with a touch of hills and slope {not too many}.   Last year they had walkers, runners, strollers and dogs.  Everyone is welcome to join in and the morning is full of great energy. The Turkey Trot and Salvation Army work together to feed 100 Napa families {or more}.  This run is not only fun, but a great way to support around holiday season.  Families and runners can donate turkeys and/or food for the drive. The event is Saturday, November 22, 2014 and there is a discount code you can use for $5 off your registration TROTTER So are you going to be heading out for the Turkey Trot? Have…  Read More…

My Emotional Turkey Trot

This past weekend was rather special as I was able to run the First Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot 5k event which supported the Salvation Army.  I was very pleased to have been given two race tickets {one for Miss Faith and myself}. The morning started out a bit chilly, but amazing for a November day in the wine country.  This particular day was special as we went as a family.  My hubby and son watching and cheering us on, while I was able to run with our daughter.  Faith and I have done a Color Run together, but this was different.  There was a special “something” about this run with her.  Maybe it was because it was her first timed race with me, maybe it was watching her excitement as we got close to the start time, maybe it was her telling me to “keep up” and not slow…  Read More…
