Figures I would learn of this event, but also find out I cannot run for almost another 10 months after Achilles tendon surgery (insert your squeemish sigh here).
Anyway, on Saturday, October 17, beginning at 10am in Portland, the folks at the Maine Running Company will combine a non-competitive run/walk with the sampling of food and wine. Patterned after the Le Marathon du Medoc in France, which is not about how fast you finish, but about the food, fun, and wine!
In fact, there is no timing of the event, but strategically placed “aid stations” to assist “racers” with their glucose, alcohol, dairy, and chocolate levels.
What’s better? The Maine Running Company will host a “Training Session” at their store located at 563 Forest Avenue in Portland, Maine, on Thursday, October 8. What a great way to get in shape for the big race and meet some of your fellow competitors! Definitely going to be a blast!

Best of luck in your “Training Session” and the “Big Race”. Probably the toughest 5k of your life!
