Boston Marathon Pre-Party Blogger Meet-Up

Hey there!

I have running fever! 😯

After yesterday’s Boston Marathon Pre-Party Blogger Meet-Up at Cambridge, 1.,Β all I want to do is run. And sign up for another marathon. What?! Who said that?

I got running fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!

But, really, I spent nearly two hours straight talking about running, and now I want to sign up for even more races. (I realize I have a problem.)

Fellow bloggers, Lizzy and KimΒ hosted the event, which had quite the turn out of lady runners!

It was so nice to meet and get to know these women, especially since I just discovered the world of running blogs. It’s funny how my Google Reader has morphed from mostly food blogs to fitness blogs in the past several months.

I definitely found some new running blogs to add my daily rotation!

Thanks for a great event, Lizzy and Kim!

Good luck on Monday, runners!!!



  1. That would definitely leave me inspired to sign up for races galore, too! So, what are the running blogs you’ve been liking lately?
    I can’t wait to huddle in the back corner of my office tomorrow morning, sneak-watching the Boston Marathon online! πŸ™‚ GO KARA GOUCHER!!!

  2. Of all the habits to have, running is a pretty good one! Says the girl who spent an hour last night practicing yoga handstands and forearm balance and is now off to class.

    Yay for finding more things to challenge yourself and your body with! And reading about someone’s running or yoga or hiking is much more exciting than reading about their food! (except sushi, that is still exciting.)

  3. Definitely a cool event! The food and the prizes sound awesome. Gotta love finding other like minded bloggers out there. Enjoy Marathon Monday!

  4. You have to be careful the company you keep, or you’ll end up in more races…that’s how I ended up doing a marathon….it’s contagious!

  5. I love running blogs too – and I’m way too race addicted with something like 40 on this years calendar (including triathlons though).

  6. PLEASE share your favourite running blogs! I definitely need more of those in my rss. PLEASE!
    (Blogs are so addicting!)

  7. I agree – Kimmy and Lizzy did a fantastic job! I loved being able to talk to all those crazy runners…and it gave me race fever as well! In fact, I think blogging has been really bad for my race addiction. πŸ™‚

    I also had a similar shift in the blogs that I read. When I first started, I read mostly food blogs (even though mine was not) but then gradually over time I shifted and now I read way more running blogs than anything else. And it only helps fuel the fire, because I find out about all these cool-sounding races I wouldn’t have known about otherwise!

    It was great seeing you yesterday! Hopefully we can plan some more local runner/blogger meet-ups this spring and summer!

  8. This looks like so much fun Tina! I’m going to check out the blogs of some of these ladies because I’ve lost my racing motivation lately and I feel they’d probably help me get it back. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  9. Hey Tina! Thanks for coming! Had a ton of fun : )
    Would love for you to join us next time we all get together for a run and lunch. I’ll keep you posted. Have fun in Vegas : )

  10. So great to meet you yesterday! I love that your running addiction is growing so rapidly! The Boston blogger crew makes me wish I still lived in New England. You guys have an extremely awesome group of local running ladies. I’m glad so many of you are doing the 10k in NYC in June!

    Have fun on your vacay!

  11. I always get the racing itch when I hear someone talk about racing! I have a race in two weeks, so when I hear all about the Boston marathon tomorrow, at least I know I will have my own race to look forward to soon πŸ™‚

  12. What a fun event! It’s so energizing to be around people that share your interests!
    My step mom is running the Boston Marathon tomorrow! I am going to follow her on the runner tracker system that AT&T set-up.

  13. Finally getting to comment on this! It was so nice to meet you and so glad you had fun with all us running bloggers πŸ˜‰ its a fun community!
