We are heading north tonight to cheer on my sister, who is running the Napa Valley Marathon on Sunday! For a countdown to showtime, check out her excellent marathon training blog, Pink, PRs and Pinot Noirs, in which she obsesses about all things pink and her favorite Pinot Noirs while sharing solid running tips. (God love her.) I’m really excited about helping her carbo-load tomorrow, starting with the world’s best English muffin at the Model Bakery and ending with my dad making his spaghetti sauce based on a recipe from the Hotel Danieli that he’s been improving upon for the past 25 years or so. Currently the Sunday forecast calls for 60% rain, so Tiny G has packed his microfiber rain jacket with a concealed hood for foul weather. He wouldn’t miss cheering on his Auntie Claude for the world!
By the way, if you’re wondering what bottle she’ll be cracking open at the end of 26.2, it’s a 2005 Williams Selyem Rochioli Riverblock Vineyard Pinot Noir. What can I say? The girl has good taste.
