Life is all about pairings: husband & wife, brother & sister, peanut butter & jelly, gin & tonic, and the best pairing of all…wine & running. I’d like to welcome you to the lair of a passionate runner and wino.


December 26, 2011 marks a seminal moment in my life. It’s the day I stepped on the scale and was aghast to see 226 lbs staring back at me in red digital truth. Yikes…time to focus on cardio!

Seminal moment #2 occurred March 18, 2012 at the Quincy Half-Marathon. I finished my first race in 1:42 (not too shabby), but what’s more significant…I caught the running bug!

Since then I’m 2 marathons and 4 half-marathons deep…and counting. Let’s just say I’m addicted to the pain.


As a former sommelier and current wine enthusiast, wine is central to what I enjoy. I love spending my free time with the ones I love. About 10 years ago I found out that these moments are enhanced to memorable heights by simply injecting a bottle of great juice.

Cheers and I hope you enjoy my slant,
