Eleven months ago, Zoë (Run, Zoë, Run) and I met for our first bloggy meet-up run on the Cedar River Trail for 11 miles. It was the last long run for our first half marathon coming up at the end of November.
LB (Muddy Runner) happened to be in Seattle on a work-related trip and was knocking out his first 18-miler ever in preparation of his first full marathon.
Guess who Zoë and I ran into that day?
It was pouring rain. I had elbow puddles. Zoë had sudsy knees. LB was…tired.
Yesterday was a little different. First of all, it wasn’t raining. Second, we planned the meet-up: no running, just breakfast. T Junior tagged along. And then there’s Goober, who is due any day now.
Also, let’s not forget to mention that, combined, we’ve completed eight half marathons and two fulls (those are both LB’s, of course). Wow, not bad for a year.
How fun. I love bloggy meetups! We need a You Go Girl reunion dinner next year so you can come too!
No way!? That is so cool!! I remember the first meetup! Has it been a year? Wow!!P.S. you look FAB! And Zoe, poor Zoe! I can't wait for Goober to come out and meet the world!P.P.S. I miss WA. =(
love what running can do! very cool!
Much like our first-ever meeting will stay with me forever, so too will Sunday's. I was very lucky to have gotten the chance to run into both of you back in 09 and once again lucky to have gotten the chance to return to Seattle this year. I will go back one day to run an actual race there, whether it's the Rock n Roll or the Marathon the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I'm hoping it will be in 2011 but one day soon I'll earn a medal on a trip to WA.Thanks again to you and Zoe for a memorable Sunday morning.
Very cool! Glad you were able to meet up. Did T Jr take the photo?!
What an awesome post! I just left a message over at Zoe's blog, too, wondering how she's doing ~ knowing we're down to the wire. What a difference a year makes! You have each come so far. That's really cool! And I love the pic. Tobi, aka Busy Running Mama, and I are also celebrating our first 'meet-up anniversary,' recently running a 3-miler and planning the Founders' Day 10K where we first met last year. Isn't it great to meet such amazing people through blogging?? *hugs* from Orlando! You've been on my mind lately. So nice to see your big smile!
That post was short, but very sweet! Nice memories!
What a nice reunion!! You are looking so slim, lady!
That is such a difference in a year!
Super fun! You all look so great in those pictures!
That's so cool! I'd love to meet some of my blog friends!
