In reality it was a meet-up, but my Baltimore Healthy Blogger Meet-up felt eerily similar to a blind date. Let me explain:
When Jenny emailed me asking if I wanted to be a part of a Baltimore Healthy Blogger meet-up, I was a bit nervous. #1 – I don’t consider myself a healthy living blogger. I see myself more as lifestyle blogger who is trying to be healthy. Yet, with my newfound running hobby (in addition to my Barre Fusion addiction and affinity for BodyPump) I thought I’d give it a shot. #2 – I feel like I can be loud, have a tendency to talk a lot, and be a bit awkward.
I entered The Rowhouse Grille Monday evening with butterflies in my stomach & a husband at home who said he’d be my out if I needed one. I honestly felt like I was going on a semi-blind date. I had read the blogs of some people there, but it was my first time meeting everyone in real life.
I took a deep breath, made my way upstairs, and met a group of fun, energetic, lovely young ladies who I feel will inspire me (and you) to try new things more often.
Let’s meet them, shall we?
Kerry – The Adventures of Z & K
Megan – Outlaw on the Run
Dani – DaHartAttack
Kait – Making A Run for It
Brittany – Barr and Table
Kate – Sunshine and the Bear
Caitlyn – City and the Cubicle
Lauren – Breathe Deeply and Smile
Others that were invited by couldn’t make it:
Coco – Hot Coco(a)
Colleen – Jimmy Choos on the Treadmill
Jami – Fit Jams
Jenny – Love, Eat, Run
Kaitlyn – Simply Complicated
Katie – Skinny Minnie Moves
Kat – The Road I’m Running
Laura – Hell On Heels
Mary – Azn Starlette
A pretty good group, if I do say so myself! Many thanks to: Caitlyn for organizing the event, Kate for the photo, and the Rowhouse Grille for providing an intimate space for us to meet. (We had the second floor and a group of bartenders all to ourselves.) Hopefully, you’ll be seeing a lot more of these lovely ladies as we all grow closer and explore the world of healthy living in Baltimore!
Ever been to a meet-up? If so, please tell me you can understand my blind date analogy…
