I also got to go to a preseason Tampa Bay Bucs game with a great friend, her son and Thing 1. All in all, it was a busy day with a ton of driving, but it was a great day!!
Bloggy meet up was arranged by Robin over at Running Circles Around The Turtles. We all met at Jason's Deli and the food was awesome. Fresh and healthy !!
Now Robin, I have met before. If you've been around a while, HERE is the post where I went over to cheer her on in a race and meet her and The Redhead for the first time! She has been an inspiration and constant motivation since then. She was just as sweet as ever at this bloggy meet up and came armed with table decorations, cute little gifts ( a piggy bank to save for races!) and personalized notes! How sweet is that?!
I also got to meet MJ, from Girl Running, we decided we might have been separated at birth! We both love ice cream in a cone, yogurt with gummy bears as a topping, and we both have Sour gummy lifesavers on our desk right now....so funny!!I am sure if we had more time to chat, we would have much more in common....we were already talking about a running meet up as soon as I can get my mileage up a bit!
My PT, Jan Lawlor, went with me to the lunch too! She's not in the photos, because she was so kind to offer to take the group photo!!
I met quite a few others who run in and around central FL and was jealous of all of the ambitious races they were training for!! A few were training for half marathons, 15K's and even a half Iron Man!! Awesome. Here are a few photos!
I think that whole process deserves it's own post, so stay tuned for that tomorrow!! If you have imbalance issues or pain on one side and not the other, these could be the shoes for you.........
After Orlando, and Clermont, both of which are 1 to 1.5 hours East of my house, I headed home for a quick change and to pick up Thing 1 because we were headed to the Buc's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tampa is an hour West of my house.....a lot of driving today!
A few pics from the game. My friend works for the Buc's and called early Saturday to offer me 4 Club level seats on the 50 yard line with a parking pass....for free...hello?? Who says no to that?? It was very fun , even though they lost!!!
Also, if you haven't noticed, I am up to 90 followers....pretty close to 100. I think I might be able to get my butt in gear for that giveaway I have been talking about! Maybe a 100th post/1st year blogaversary/ 100th follower blow out giveaway...sounds like fun to me!! I even have a few vendors who have agreed to help out !! Stay tuned....the longer I wait, the more swag I might have.....how long will it take to get to 100 followers??????????
