Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon
After months of training, Elissa and Dave accomplished their goal of walking 13.1 miles and completing the Healdsburg Half Marathon in Sonoma’s Wine Country on October 20 (Dave ditched the jeans this time around).
The course in Healdsburg started on Lytton Springs Road then proceeded up West Dry Creek Road. The three-mile marker was right by Mazzocco Winery, the five-mile marker was at Passalacqua Winery, and the six-mile marker was at Quivira Vineyards. The race route merged back onto Dry Creek Road, passing by the Ferrari-Carano Winery before finishing right by the Warm Springs Dam.
Elissa and Dave completed the course in 3:37:08. Together with their close family and friends, they celebrated the achievement by using their complimentary wine glasses to taste the wares of the Russian River Valley wineries represented at the finish line.
