Do you remember that book? It was one of my favorites as a kid. I loved the idea that behind the a non-descript looking door was a world so different than the world around them. On my run today, I realized that as a blogger, I feel a lot like that.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my life but I also love know that my phone, computer and iPad are gateways to this amazing world where fitness rules, people are nothing but supportive and inspirational and companies are in it for more than just the bottom line.
I consider you friends. Yes, I know, we’ve never met but does that really matter? We talk everyday, and sometimes multiple times. And you’ve supported me through what has been the most difficult thing I’ve ever gone through and continue to deal with.
Now, there are times when these two worlds collide and when they do, I have to say that the result is just as amazing as expected. For example, I’ve been able to turn virtual friends into real friends earlier this year when I met:
- Madeline from Food, Fitness and Family
- Kristen from The Concrete Runner
- Annica from Annica Nicole
- Michelle from Confessions of a Recipe Junkie
I consider these girls friends and am so thankful that we’ve had the opportunity to meet.
That’s why I’m so excited about next month’s Hood to Coast. Nuun, an amazing company that not only sells a great product but has an immense passion for the people that drink Nuun, is bringing over 30 amazing women together to do something we love..Running.
Not only is this going to be like any other experience I’ve ever had but I’ll get to open the door to the wardrobe a little wider and let these women into my life a little bit more.
If you’re a blog reader, my advice…get involved…comment, engage, talk. Hopefully you know blogging is more than just writing an article, it’s about connecting which is the reason I do it.
Have you ever had the chance to meet your favorite bloggers? If you could meet anyone who would you like to meet?
