I am beyond excited to be attending Fitbloggin this year - September 20-23, 2012 in Baltimore!! I know I only started blogging in May, but the community is so inviting, engaging and encouraging that I feel like I have been a part of it for years. For those of you who don't know, I am leaving my current job in Chicago and moving to Boston on January 29. In my current job, I wouldn't have been able to attend Fitbloggin so I am super excited that with the big life change I can attend.
I remember seeing everyone's pictures, tweets and blog posts from last year's event that I knew I wanted to attend. There are so many fit bloggers that I interact with on a daily basis that I would love to meet in person ... and now I have the chance!
I also am looking forward to learning from these people. There are some amazing bloggers out there that I know will make me a better blogger - and person - as well. Big props to Roni who puts this whole conference on.
I'm pretty stoked to be hitching a ride from Boston to Baltimore with Tara and Meegan - two of my favorite twitter friends - and rooming with the only and only Jan - who has been a motivator of mine for awhile.
I am pumped and thank my wife for letting me spend the $$$ to go. :)
Additionally, I am proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and attending an event!! I technically will not have met any of these people in person before and that can be scary. But, the information we have shared together through tweets, blog, Facebook and e-mail, make me more comfortable with them than some people in my everyday life!
Oh ... there is also a 5k where I believe people where some kick ass outfits. I will need to start planning mine now...
Will anyone else be attending Fitbloggin '12? I cannot wait to meet and connect with all of you!
