Kim is a super cool and is working towards completing 7 half-marathons this year... her 1st (ever) being at the Eugene Marathon earlier this spring. She's headed to Hawaii this weekend, where the lucky girl will race with her husband at the Maui Half Marathon on what promises to be a beautiful course. Next weekend she is headed to Tacoma to join Tall Mom and others at the You Go Girl Half Marathon, which I believe will be #6. I'd say you should check out her blog, but she doesn't have one, but you can check her out HERE on Daily Mile. Anyway, on to the festivities of last night...
Here we are enjoying the fun.
Why yes, that is baby drool on my shoulder, thanks for noticing...
The event was a Chubby Mommy Running Club Social put together by JulieJulie, a super energetic and smiley person who has a fantastic blog that you can check out HERE.
This is a picture of Julie and my super drooly, just figuring out that he wasn't being held by his mommy, wanting to eat and go to bed little munchkin.
Basically it was a night to meet some other local runners and exchange emails in order to possibly create running partnerships. It was also a great excuse to get out of the house, talk about running and enjoy some of Earth Cafe's Raw Vegan Cheesecake (pretty tasty) and Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss IceCream... mmmm.
Also, Laura McClain of Run Momma Run was there and gave away her super cute Runner Girl necklace as a door prize... and guess who won?
Miss "I never win anything, you always win everything"
aka k2323Hopefully, if meeting me and getting to hold my littlest one while I scarfed... I mean politely nibbled at my cheesecake and ice cream didn't make the trip worth while (ha ha) the necklace did. :P
All in all, I had a great time. Thanks to Kim for inviting me, then driving down from Albany to go with me, then telling everyone about my blog and making me feel like a celebrity! Good luck this weekend and next, I'm sure you'll be awesome!
