Fitbloggin’ was amazing from beginning to end. From the people I met and the new friends I made, to the things I learned and the things Katy and I hopefully taught others, it was a great conference.
My favorite thing about this year’s Fitbloggin’ was that Roni expanded it to two days. Friday was very fitness centric and Saturday was very much blog centric.
I opted to not stay at a hotel in Baltimore because I figured driving back and forth from D.C. wouldn’t be that bad, and would save me some cash. Wrong. I will not make this mistake again next year.
I had to wake up so insanely early on Friday to beat rush hour and get to Baltimore in time for the 5K.
It was totally worth it though.
Running along the harbor early in the morning was gorgeous. Made me a little bit jealous that Chris gets to run there every day.
The course was an out and back, but only Jenny was familiar with the area. If it weren’t for her we totally would have gotten lost.
We made our way back to the hotel, grabbed some breakfast and got ready for a day full of fitness sessions.
The first session I attended was all about kettlebells.
It was fun watching the ladies demonstrate all the things you can do with kettlebells. The presenters looked so strong. It was a nice reminder that I need to get back on the strength training wagon.
I followed kettlebells up with a trampoline fitness class. Turns out jumping on a trampoline for a really long time will make your legs very tired and your calves really tight, especially if you’ve already run a 5K.
After lunch there were some great sessions on building community and working with brands, and the evening wrapped up with the Fitbloggin’ social.
The evening wrapped up with a fun trek across Baltimore to go to Frank and Nics with my new Fitbloggin’ friends, Heidi, Luke and Matt. I have never been so happy to eat yummy bar food. I was starving after all the working out. After trying to convince everyone they should come see me and Katy present in the morning, I called it an night and headed back home.
