bloggers running

Monday after work I had to the opportunity to meet up with the lovely Amanda from Run To the Finish. She was in Chicago for work and I was actually home! The plan was to meet at her hotel for a run before her client dinner... of course I happened to get a "little" turned around when driving from the office to the hotel so I was ridiculously late. I'm usually early to everything and so my lateness was a little stressful for me. Not the way I hoped to start my first blogger meet-up! Sorry Amanda! Luckily I made it and we headed to the lakefront for a wonderful run. The day had been warm and sunny but as we made our way north the fog rolled in and cooled the city. It was so nice to have someone to talk to along my favorite route. Not sure of the distance because in my hurried state I left my garmin in the car... I'm guessing 5ish miles. Exactly what I needed after a day in the office filing :)

Bloggie meetups are the best! It's fun meeting the people that you have been "talking" to on blogs.

That Lakeshore path is beautiful. :)

It was awesome!! So funny because for whatever I felt like I connected with you from everything you write about and have wanted to run with you for awhile!
