Good afternoon! Megan and I ran 6.0 miles this morning. It was obvious that we BOTH appreciated having a running partner today!
We managed to squeak out the mileage at a decent pace, but I had to stop and ask her if we could walk several times towards the end. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m fully recovered from my illness yet. She said she didnâ€™t mind, and thatâ€™s one of the things I like about running with Megan â€“ sheâ€™s flexible.
- Duration: 1 hour, 3 minutes
- Distance: 6.0 miles
- Mile 1: 9:58
- Mile 2: 9:48
- Mile 3: 10:21
- Mile 4: 10:27

I came home and crashed on the floor. I only let my dogs lick my face after a run since Iâ€™m getting in the shower anyway!
I think they like the salt? Eww. 🙂
I showered, iced my knees, and ate another Glo bar (my stash is rapidly dwindling):
Worked a little, and then I made lunch:
I had Lentil soup from Wolfgang Puck, which looks disgusting but tastes amazing:
And about 1.5 servings of crackers with cheese:
Iâ€™ve been tweeting like a madwoman about the Fit Blogginâ€™ 2010 conference. Fit Blogginâ€™ is a conference for those that blog about fitness, wellness, good food, and a healthy lifestyle. Itâ€™s an opportunity to connect, learn, grow, and network.
Fit Blogginâ€™ will take place on March 20, 2010 in Baltimore, and Iâ€™ll be speaking on the panel called: Beyond the Blog: Publishing Books and Other Forms of Media. Iâ€™m excited to be on the panel, and hopefully it will help me get over my public speaking nerves before my book tour! 🙂
One of the things I liked about Fit Blogginâ€™ is that there are two â€œtracksâ€ for the attendees, so you donâ€™t have to listen to a panel that doesnâ€™t apply to your goals or interests. Panel options include:
- â€œDonâ€™t write about junk science: How to critically evaluate researchâ€ OR â€œBlogs, Accessibility and SEO: Dispelling the Mythsâ€
- â€œGetting Noticed: How to Pitch to Traditional Mediaâ€ OR â€œWordpress from .com to Self Hosted: An in Depth look into one of the Most popular Blogging Softwares out thereâ€
- â€œBeyond the Blog: Publishing Books and Other Forms of Mediaâ€ OR â€œBody Image and Blogging: What are we teaching our kids?â€
- â€œUsing Social Media to Reach Goals: The Power of an Online Communityâ€ OR â€œMaking Money From Your Blog: Should You? Could You? How?â€
Everyone gets to attend sessions on yoga and strength training, as well as the keynote speaker (to be announced). Plus â€“ thereâ€™s a cocktail party and a fun run! The complete detailed schedule for the conference is available here. This conference is definitely aimed at bloggers, but I think readers would get a lot of out it, too.
I hope you join me in Baltimore! :) I love to meet new people, so donâ€™t be shy if you feel like you wonâ€™t know anyone â€“ youâ€™ll know me! Tickets are $75 on the early bird special, but that only lasts until SATURDAY. You can register here.
Are you going to Fit Blogginâ€™ or any other blogger conference in the future? Itâ€™s fun to go from â€˜electronic friendsâ€™ to â€˜real friendsâ€™ with people! 🙂
