The house is really quiet, but in about 30 minutes things are going to be rockin! The family is taking me to the train station and I am headed to Fitbloggin in Portland.
Nope, not scared. TERRIFIED!
I'm a pretty outgoing person, but I feel like I am late to a really big party. Many (in my mind it's all!) of these people attending already know each other. I have two roommates. I don't know either of them. I have no stories that start with "Remember last year at Fitbloggin....". I have no amazing blog to share. My story, while important, is not uncommon in a large group of fitness bloggers.
I'm going to miss my babies. (When do I have to stop calling them babies?) My husband is doing solo duty for 4 days. The longest I've ever been gone is 2. There are a million things to do at home.
Why am I doing this?
~ I am excited to meet many of the bloggers that I have followed for years. Some of them were the only ones that made me feel normal during my deepest struggles. Now I have to be brave enough to approach them!
~ I love learning about health and fitness. I get to hang out with other people who have common goals. People that "get" a healthy lifestyle tend to "get" me better these day. What, you don't schedule your day around your workouts???
~ The adventure is exciting and terrifying at the same time.
I'm sure once I arrive it will be all good. When I left for college the toughest part was waiting for the plane to depart. *****DEEP BREATHS**** Going to hop in the shower, wake the family, and head to the train station. I'll keep you posted.
