Meeting some famous bloggers!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Guys, a couple exciting things happened this past week!Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...


I got to meet some famous bloggers!


On Monday, I met Ana @ Mother, Hike, Run Repeat at a local coffee shop for a chat. We had been following each other's blogs for several months, and since we live in the same town, it was more than time for us to meet in the flesh!

Ana's blog has just the right mix of running and non running related posts for my liking. You see, when I start reading a blog, I get super nosy as to just the day to day stuff about the blogger that isn't even running related. So while I do love her running posts (particularly her hilarious race recaps), I also enjoy the other topics she writes about.

We chatted for almost two hours and it was quite interesting how alike we are! She was a very fun, bubbly person. I hope I get to hang out with again!

I am sorry we didn't get a picture! Next time!

On Friday, I met Karen @ Running Over The Hill. I don't know how I discovered Karen's blog, but I am so glad I did. She is a breath of fresh air. She keeps everything REAL, which is very refreshing. We have lots in common... We both work at schools, we love to run, and we are awesome cat moms!

Karen and I live about 5 hours apart, so we met nearly halfway for a hike in the Shenandoah Mountains.

I knew Karen and I would hit it off, and whaddaya know, we did! A couple things to know about Karen... she smells really good, she is just as beautiful in person as she is in pictures, she is not afraid of bears like I am, and she hikes FAST. Seriously. This woman gave me a workout!!!! We hiked 8 miles and I was pooped by the time we were done!


We saw this little buddy and he wasn't scared!!!!



Have you ever met a fellow blogger?

I have been getting around these days as I have been lucky enough to meet... 

Heather @ Girl Goes Running

Ali @ Hit The Ground Running

Kristina @ Kristina Running

Lacey & Meranda @ Fairytales and Fitness

By adding in this past week meeting Karen @ Running Over the Hill and Ana @ Mother, Hike, Run, Repeat...I think I can officially call myself a blogger meetup whore!!!!

    2. Thanks! And I have to say that you are the first person to ever describe me as bubbly... most of the time I get "cold and distant", "mean" and my favorite "pretentious". But I have to say that it is better to hang out with somebody who is smart, open minded and funny as you are!

    3. Really!!!??? I think it has to be that we both felt like we sort of knew each other already from reading each other's blogs. So were NOT cool, distant, or pretentious! But then again I didn't try to rearrange your desk. ;)

  5. How fun! Well, you know how truly disappointed I was we didn't get to meet when you were in Colorado, but we will next time for sure. I have already decided that you, Karen, Kristina and I will be having a meet up! I will represent the non blogger, non cat owner of the group, k?

    1. I was disappointed too BUT we will meet someday.

      And yes, you can represent the non blogger and non cat owner because Karen has enough cats for all of us!!!!! ;)

      (Karen, I say that out of PURE JEALOUSY! I want more cats.)

  7. I am cracking up! I smelled good, I am relieved to hear that lol I had SO much fun, I wish you were closer.
    I don't even realize I hike fast! Just tell me to slow down.
    My cats were excited when I got home! I felt guilty I left them again all day Sunday, and now I will be at work for 10 hours, I am like a stranger to them now.

    1. I knew you would laugh when I wrote how you smelled good. I couldn't figure out a way to tell you in person without sounding creepy.
