Okay, we gave in and took a picture this time, but it was still a wonderfully excellent evening shared with friends.

One awesome thing about tumblr is that we all KNOW each other. Not just names and faces, but these people know the struggles that I went through over the last 18 weeks to get myself across that finish line yesterday.

I’m so glad that we were able to come together for an evening of delicious food, good conversation, and excellent beer and wine.

I am so honored to be a part of this kick ass community.

Keep being awesome, folks.

You Look Familiar

This morning I was introduced to a new member of our marathon training group. She looked familiar when I shook her hand, but I didn’t say anything. After the run she introduced herself as @runeatlovesleepmn and the mystery was solved!

Can’t wait to get to know another Tumblr while we train.


My day was better than your day.

I picked Becky up from the mega bus this morning. We had a real life coffee date at French Meadow Bakery. It’s so much better in person.

Then we went to packet pick up and got our race goodies.

I made us some lunch and Becky hung out with Little Mister. He used sign language for milk for the first time today while she was here!!!!

Before the tumblr meet up we met Katie at the house that’s she’s looking after. They have maybe the largest window seat I have ever seen!

We went to Bario and had margs and guac so we could catch up. Then headed over to dinner at Di’Amico and Son’s.

We were bad tumblrs and didn’t take photos, but it really did happen. Bob and Sheila were there and we got to meet Ceri (runeatlovesleepmn) and her boyfriend Jesse.

As we were eating the hubby sent that picture of LM. He was exhausted after chasing Becky around and flirting all afternoon.
