BLOGGER ENCOUNTERS!!


Guess who I had lunch with today?


Sherly Perly!! What fun! She's here in Austin from Florida, visiting her sister Joyce. The three of us had lunch and what a grand time we had! Talked and talked and talked for 2 hours. Joyce is a marathoner, too. So we all had lots to chatter about. I met Shirley at Ironman Florida in 2006 and it was great to see her again.


Be sure to go to her blog and click the link to see her video-entry to Team Evotri, a community of athletes who use their own endurance-sport experiences to reach out to challenge others to pursue active lifestyles. The top ten videos will be available for viewing and voting at Team Evotri on Monday, Feb. 18. If Shirley makes the team (through your votes) she'll be part of this inspiring effort. Plus, she'll get MAJOR schwag!!


Tomorrow I get to meet up with Skatemom! This is Blogger Weekend in Austin!!

Ellie, congrats on finishing the Austin Marathon!!! I know it wasn't your best race time but considering what you've gone through the past couple weeks I think you did great. Hope you're recovering well.

i tried to leave a message on your cell but i kept getting kicked out.

I want to hear more about it! I can't believe you finished after what you said in your message... 25 down!

Thank you again Ellie for supporting me. Unfortunately, I did not make it to round two but there are 2 more team slots and 2 more contests. We'll see what happens!
