Agata and Marcus have noticed that after most sporting events in which we participate; the post celebration wine celebration is almost guaranteed.
So we thought, maybe there is a way to optimise the two activities.
And so we participated in the Half Marathon at Arnex sur l'Orbe just north west of Lausanne.
It is a marathon with Wine :-)
The principle is simplicity itself, at refreshment stops you have the chance to have Water, Wine or a combination of both! In fact the organisers also put on a good spread of food too. How did we do?
Did I forget to mention Fancy Dress
Degustation means wine tasting
First Water stop. Marcus could not find any wine
Marcus the daredevil (I mean, he's risking local Swiss white wine :-)
Competitors who did not stop for wine kept overtaking us. Surely though, we'd catch them on the hills [well, we always say that]
Kids are helping, but distribution water only
Always time to stop and admire a Classic Citrown
And then it was over oh so quickly ...
A good time was had by all. Reasonable prices, Good Weather, Exercise, local wine tasting. Optimisation! It does not get much better than this.
