I will be recapping FitBloggin most of this week but I wanted to start with what I learned about myself from FitBloggin ’12. What I learned about myself during this awesome weekend is the most invaluable information that I took home with me. I discovered a confidence in myself that I never knew I had and with this confidence I was able to do things I never thought I could do like speak in front of a group of people. In the coming weeks I think you will see my new found confidence in both my blogs and vlogs.
I met new friends and reconnected with some old ones which made this weekend even more amazing. Tamara from FitKnitChick was the best roommate I could ask for and our hotel stay was mostly great except for the obnoxious people in the next room who were super loud both Friday and Saturday night until they finally got kicked out of the hotel. The Hyatt Regency was nice enough to give us a partial credit on our room to help make up for the disturbance.
It was an amazing experience to take a trip by myself and I definitely would love to do this type of trip at least once a year. Amtrak was an awesome way to travel to Baltimore but when I packed I forgot to leave room for all the swag I would get which left me worried about how I would get all of it home on the train. Luckily for me Jill Hanner was driving right past my town and offered to give me a ride home!!!
The weekend ended even better than it began and I am so grateful for having met so many awesome people!!!! Next year FitBloggin will be in Portland, Oregon and I am hoping I will be able to attend!!!!
