I previously mentioned that I was going to be running the Las Vegas Marathon this year because of a running blogger conference that is currently in the works. What I didn’t mention is that SkinnyRunner asked if I wanted to be one of the speakers…. and I said YES!
Now it’s official… I am up on the site!
If you know me, you know this is a big deal. I am
deathly afraid not the biggest fan of speaking in front of large crowds, so this will be something new and challenging for me, and will definitely push my boundaries.
But I am really excited!
I figure if I am going to talk about something in front of people, running would be the thing I would want to talk about. I mean I talk about it forever to anyone who will listen already, so this shouldn’t be too hard.
Details about the weekend are still in order but it has been titled Urban Running: Blogger Summit and there is a temporary site up with information. If you want to be on the list to get information email firstname.lastname@example.org and say you are interested! It’s going to be a blast and the more interest they get the better it will be!
I do need a little bit of your your help…
If you were going to go to a conference like this, what topics would you want to hear about?
I need ideas!
- Balancing working full time with a training plan/time management/tips for fitting running in
- How to make your own training plan/training plan tips
- Fueling for runs
- Running clothes
Anything else running related!
Let me know what you would want to hear about or any ideas you have!
I am so excited for this and I hope to see a bunch of you there! The more friends I have in the audience the better.
Do you like public speaking?
I ran for ASB Treasurer during my junior year of high school and had to give a speech in front of a lot of people during my campaign. It was really scary but one of the most rewarding experiences because it went so well and I had a blast! I did end up winning, so was treasurer of my high school my senior year… yes I wanted to be an accountant back then too… yah yah.
