I Love Bloggers

Last month I realized it had been a really long time since we had a Bay Area Blogger meet up which made me sad.  I checked my calendar and sent out a quick email to a bunch of bloggers, and it actually ended up magically working out! 

I was really excited both to see some old friends and to meet some new ones.  The Bay Area blogging community has definitely grown and there were lots of new faces I was so happy to meet!

We met up in Danville in the East Bay this morning and had quite the crew!

Alisyn, Naomi, Page, Kristen, Caitlin, Kerry, Layla, Beth, Courtney
Alyssa, Tara, Audrey, Jana, Katie, Megan and me!
Missing: Cate


We all set out for our own distances and paces and pretty much everyone had someone to run and chat with which was great!

I had a great 6 mile recovery run with Alyssa, Layla and Megan after yesterday’s awesome 20 miler.

After the run we headed over to Peet’s to get coffee and we all ended up sitting around talking for a good couple hours.  It was so fun to hear everyone getting to know each other and make different connections.  Bloggers are the best! 


It was such a great morning and I was so happy that so many were able to come!  We definitely will be having more in the very near future.

Have you met any bloggers in person?

I have actually lost count of the number I have met!  I have been so fortunate to meet so many great friends through blogging and can’t wait to meet many more!

    Wait, there is a running blogger meet up in San Francisco? How do I get myself on that list?

    I haven’t met any bloggers in person, yet. I’m hoping to meet a few when I finally get myself out to the Bay Area and perhaps I’ll find myself at the Healthy Living Summit in August.

    So fun! I’ve met a few but there are so many that I really want to meet. I’ve made some genuine friends through blogging and I can’t wait to meet them! I know that Boston 2012 will be a big meet up and I’m so excited!

    I have not met any fellow bloggers in person, but it’s on my list of goals this year. Besides having plans to meet up with some local bloggers soon, I registered to go to a conference specifically to meet a bunch of bloggers whom I have known for at least a year. Can’t wait!

    I had such a great time – thanks for organizing, Aron!

    First, thank you for tagging everyone in that pic….I will memorize for next time!

    Second, today was SO great. A huge eye-opener for me in the world of blogging. Putting real people’s faces to online personalities kind of changes the way I might approach blogging. You’re going to make me way cheesier, I know it…

    thanks again for organizing! can’t wait for the next one

    I haven’t met any bloggers yet, but I’m still pretty new. I can’t wait to go to my first meet up!

    How fun!! I met a couple bloggers when I ran the Nashville marathon. It was a great time.

    I’m jealous of your huge meet up! Meeting bloggers is always such a fun time….hopefully I’ll be out west again soon. :)

      Next time you come out I will most certainly organize another massive meet up in honor of your presence ;)

    I think everybody in my life right now (excluding work), I met through the internet in some way. Even my job, I have because of someone I met through Blogger. It is amazing, isn’t it? Sorry Boomer and I could not make it this morning, I had to work all day. Next time. ;)

    I have around ZERO running/fitness bloggers around me so I get ZERO blogger meetups. totally sucks.

    Thank you so much for organizing this…it was awesome!

  13. marlene June 27, 2011 at 8:06 am #

    So awesome!!! Glad you were all able to get together and what better way than with a run!

  14. Sarah June 27, 2011 at 9:02 am #

    That is so awesome you guys could all get together for a run! Since, I’m new to the blogging world I haven’t met anyone yet. This is such an amazing community of bloggers and I can’t wait to get more involved with it!

    I’m so jealous!!! I just started blogging (and running) and I live in the bay area too!! Can you guys include me next time you have a gathering? Would love to meet some runners in the area!
