I ran out of time to do a full post beforehand so here is a sneak peak of the eats I brought 😉

Pesto, Roma tomato, and parmesan reggiano bruschetta & goat cheese and fig bruschetta.  Full (possibly silly) recap late tonight or tomorrow AM!

Naughty Blogger, Great Morning by Katie

So I didn’t take pictures of my veggie burger at Steuben’s OR my brunch at Mona’s this morning with some new Team in Training friends.  But I can tell you that joining Team in Training to run this marathon is probably one of the best decisions I’ve made.  It’s not mandatory to go to group training or anything, but I’ve already met so many great people!  We met this morning around 7:30 AM and though most of us were strangers, there was none of the awkwardness that usually comes along with a big group of strangers.  As soon as I walked up to the meeting point, people were introducing themselves with big smiles and high fiving, you’d think we just finished the marathon!

Then we started running and after about a quarter mile I was at a comfortable pace with another girl named Kate.  We just chatted the whole time and the run FLEW by.   I met another lady while stretching and found out she just went into remission this past summer and is now running a marathon in honor of herself! AMAZING!  There is really nothing bad I can say about it.  I haven’t made a ton of friends while living in CO and I feel like I just made 10 new ones today, people I would love to run with but that I could also totally have a beer with later.  I know I’m totally gushing but I can’t put into a few words how great the morning was!!

It’s almost 50° here in Denver so I am going to get my butt in gear, make some apps for tonight’s blogger meetup and then spend the day OUTSIDE in the SUN!
