One of my favorite things I've gained through this experience is some really great friendships. While we may have not met in person, the fact that you take the time to read what I have to say and comment means a lot to me. When I have good news, you're there to congratulate me and when I'm wary of things (see:marathon), you provide me loads of encouraging words!
In the past year, I've been able to have 2 blates! One when this girl Erin came to my city and we grabbed dinner in DC! And a week hasn't gone by since that we haven't texted each other about the randomness of our day, life, running and recipes! The second one was with Megan when she helped kick off my birthday weekend with a great long run! We met at a nearby lake with a great running loop and chatted the whole time. She kept me motivated at the end when I really just wanted to walk. We're both training for marathons right now (they're 2 weeks apart) and it will be really fun to trade stories when we're done! I was also able to crash a blate with Debbie and Meagan at the 3.2 for 32 race at Tech last April!
Now I have a super fun weekend already planned with Kayla and Erin and I can't wait!!!! I started reading their blogs over a year ago and it'll be so cool to be able to hang out with them in person! I know the weekend will go by way too quick but I'll be leaving with such a great memories :)
I really think we should just one giant blogger meet up in a tropical location and somehow get it sponsored so it's free for all of us! Who's in?!
Here's to another great year of blogging!
P.S. Peter has a job interview today for a normal M-F 9 to 5 schedule! Please think lots of positive thoughts for him!!! :)
