Looking at the calendar I realized that I have another Friendiversary this time of year. Jess at Blonde Ponytail HERE and I met at a Bloggy meet-up hosted by Stacie HERE on 10-9-10, I was in Portland to cheer Amanda on for her Marathon. Having both been college athletes we had an instant connection, hard to believe that this time last year Jess didn't have a Blog. I WISH that she and Coach lived on the west side of the state because we would be STELLAR training buddies.
I like to celebrate Friendiversaries, first off because it is a funny word and second, it is fun to see how far we have come TOGETHER.. There is a special bond formed when you run with someone. What happens on the run stays on the run!!! Thank you Jess and Amanda for being my buddies, my spare bedroom is open whenever you want to crash at Casa-de-Tall Mom.
I have been BLESSED to meet amazing people through Blogland. I am always talking about my "friends" and that is what I consider my Bloggy Buddies, regardless of if we get to see eachother daily or not.

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.
In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer.
