It's Really Official Now!!!
I learned that the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon is sold out now. I got a little nervous because I hadn't booked a hotel room for my husband and I for the weekend yet. I headed over to the website to check out the deals they had for marathon runners and to my dismay all of the special rates reserved at the list of recommended hotels for the runners were all sold out!!! I did a little more research and found a place called the Pea soup Anderson's Inn that was available for both nights. The outside looks a little tacky, but when I clicked on the pictures, it seems like a cozy little find. They claim that they offer Danish Style accommodations, which is fitting because Solvang, which is the race location, is supposed to be the Danish capital of America. And an extra bonus is the hot tub for me to relax in after the race!!! Should be a nice weekend. My Mother and Father-In-Law are going down with us on Friday morning and we are going to check out some wineries. Not too much for me the day before the race, though. I'm sure Ross (my husband) and I will be celebrating at the post-race wine tasting and party on Saturday afternoon. I'm really excited that I will have my mother and father-in law and Ross there to cheer me on!!!
