Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Medoc Marathon

Making it to the finish line of a 26-mile marathon is a grueling test of stamina that few people are capable of completing. But what about a full-fledged marathon that includes runners in costume, 22 wine tasting stations and an oyster bar along the route? The Médoc Marathon, a raucous, wine-soaked run that takes place every fall in the heart of ’s legendary Bordeaux region, is just such an event. Bob will need to get himself in top shape not just for an intense physical test – but for a psychological one too. How will he keep himself focused on the finish line when there are so many mouthwatering and potentially impairing temptations threatening his progress? His challenge is to remember that even though it may seem like a party (that’s what the other 8000 runners seem to think), it’s still a race – and a long one at that. His reward? A whirlwind tour through some of the finest wineries in the world – and the chance to win his weight in first-growth Bordeaux.
