Running is becoming my thing again. With the help of some of my great runner friends, I’m getting better and faster. When I run, I’m just focused on the next step in front of me. It’s my own form of meditation. I focus on my breath and just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
There are many health reasons for running like helping to prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. Running can even make you happier according to research. But the real reason I run? To not feel guilty about eating some of the food that I love.
This weekend is the tastiest 5K in town – Culinaria’s Wine and Beer Run. Runners literally run for food. That’s me: Will Run for Food.
Culinaria is San Antonio’s not-for-profit organization that strives to grow the city’s culinary community, Its sixth annual 5K Wine & Beer Run will be on March 18th! Runners will trot through the beautiful Shops at La Cantera for 3.1 miles, and afterwards, will enjoy a reception of sips and tastes from some of the best restaurants around. All levels of runners are welcome to register. Awards will be given to the first overall finisher in each category. All runners will receive a bib, timing chip and t-shirt and the first 1,000 runners to pick up their race day packet will receive a free goodie bag.
More of a foodie than a runner? No problem. Non-runners can purchase a Race Day Reception Ticket the day of the race for $20 and enjoy the food and festivities, without breaking a sweat, after the conclusion of the race. All registration proceeds and donations will go directly to Culinaria and Culinaria’s farm.
Grab some friends and register today for the tastiest 5K in Texas – no training necessary.
