Time to Sweat and Drink Some Wine
If there’s ever been a reason to drink red wine, this might be the answer we’re looking for: “Antioxidants in red wine called flavonoids have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) levels and increasing the production of good cholesterol.”
This, according to Leta Shy, writing for the Women’s Running Magazine, suggests that a glass of red wine is perfectly acceptable for some out-of-this-world health benefits. If it works for the European Society of Cardiology, then it certainly works for us!
Carly and Marc have been working for years to make people healthy and happy through exercise. Now, it’s come to a great realization that not only do runners like to work out and get a huge puddle of sweat going, they also like to celebrate. And celebrating with a glass of red wine sounds absolutely amazing!
Where: Iron Plow Vineyards – Columbus, NJ
When: Sunday, July 22, 2018
Time: 10 am to 12:30 pm
What’s it all about: We start with a Runner’s Bootcamp session (think planks, donkey kicks, and single leg deadlifts). Then we are off for a two-mile run through the vineyards and mixed terrain. Finally, we meet back at the winery for a well-deserved glass of wine!
Why? Because it’s RUN day FUN day SUNDAY! What’s better than getting your sweat on with a fun group of like-minded people and starting your day off with a scenic run and relaxation at a beautiful winery. (And if that isn’t convincing enough, there will be a few prizes too!)
We’d love it if you shared this with your friends. We know there are a lot of wine drinkers out there who are looking to try new wineries, so give them that chance!
