|Thanks to Lauren (http://marathonlar.blogspot.com/) for the photo!!|
I wanted a place at the expo for Bloggers to meet-up...I figured if we are all at the expo we may as well meet face to face in an organized way.. I emailed the race director, basically asking where would be a good place. she added out Meet-up to the Expo schedule and gave us John Bingham as a celebrity host!! I have a quote from Bingham on my fridge, work wall and my car... I was nervous going in to the event, I basically made up the flow and how things would run. And I HOPED that people would come. I really had no clue what I was going to say until I came across 3 copies of Runner's World from 1997 and then it all came together.
HUGE thanks to everyone who came. Sorry if we did not get as much "Meet-up" time as we all wanted/needed. I had a blast on stage, although there were a couple semi-awkward moments, I flew past it as best I could. After the formal portion we moved to the side to talk and get a group photo. Amazing to meet people who I have only known virtually.
The rest of the weekend is a BLUR of fun with some running tossed in. Posts to come about the Train Like a Mother House Party, Onlineshoes.com/Brooks event, Slumber party at Chelsea's.
Oh and the Rock N Roll Seattle Half Marathon. Spoiler alert, I FINISHED!!
