Wow, what a fine group of athletes! Half- Marathon runners. All sizes, ages, level of fitness… all up at the crack of dawn to enjoy the Oregon wine countryside. We stood by the great fir trees by our driveway to cheer them on… they smiled back & said thanks for coming out to support THEM… can you believe? Our own B & B hosted runners.. at 0515 we served coffee, juices, bananas, cold cereals, baked healthful oatmeal (with nuts, chopped apples & craisins), blueberry muffins and morning glory muffins… bowl of fresh cherries…
Now on to the celebration with liquid fruit of the vine.. wine
tasting festivities in Carlton, “Who’s on Third” in downtown
McMinnville, and continuing with most wineries through the long holiday
weekend. Lobenhaus Bed and Breakfast and Vineyard loves the Vine Run Half Marathon!
Hopefully this inaugural event will continue annually.
