Who can run like a Goddess

while still here on Earth,

drink the nectar of the gods

in a place that looks like heaven?

The Venue – PRESQU’ILE (press-KEEL) Winery

The winery is located in the Santa Maria Valley on California’s Central Coast, just north of Santa Barbara.

This event is for the novice and avid runners, wine tasters and Greek walkers. There will be wine tasting, music and awards.

Now, riddle me this…

I run through hills;

I veer around mountains.

I leap over rivers

And crawl through the forests.

Step out your door to find me.

What am I? 

Answer:  The Road

So get out there and run!
