A few weeks ago, G and I got an email from Jen asking if we lived near The Glen. She had to go there for a meeting and was hoping we would be close. Two nanoseconds later, I replied back that not only did I live near The Glen, I lived IN The Glen.
It was perfect. Jen would come in the night before her meeting and we would get together for dinner and an early morning run the next day. I was pumped and eager to get to know her "in real life". Since we were late getting to the start at National, I only had the chance to talk to Jen for a few minutes before the race (At which point she said my name wrong. Or so she claims. I do not remember this.)
Anyway, last night, we met for sushi. And had an absolute blast. We laughed a lot. And ate a lot. And probably overstayed our welcome at the restaurant.Jen's first question for us was classic, "Tell me one thing I don't know about your from your blog." And since we share almost everything here, I'm pretty sure both G and I surprised her with our answers. I believe there was even a threat of ending the friendship. And no, I'm not sharing. At least not yet.
Then this morning, long before the sunrise, we met for a five miler decked out in our skirts and knee highs (which managed to get cropped out of all the photos we attempted to take).
The whole visit was a total win.
And speaking of winners, I am happy to announce the winner of my Races2Remember giveaway. There were 130 entries and thanks to random.org, the winner is # 125 ...
