Happy Monday Friends!
In case you didn't catch my last post entitled "Uncomfortable," I addressed the fact that I was super nervous about attending my first blogging meet-up, Blend 2012.
I'm happy to inform you that I did survive the Denver airport. But now I'm not quite so sure why I was nervous about it. Just follow the signs and get there early. And find a friend to conquer it with you on the way back...especially if you get there four hours early on the way home.
|How will I ever make that important phone call??|
It was a little embarrassing when I could only get out a strained, "Hi" when Lindsay hugged me and told me it was so good to meet me. Although thinking about it a few minutes later...I was excited she recognized me!
Saturday morning, bright and early, Tina from Best Body Fitness and Lindsay from Lindsay's List led us in an intense and fun bootcamp.
|Lindsay is telling us the importance of staying hydrated at such high elevations|
(If you remember, these gals wrote a couple of guest posts for me for Love Yourself February here and here.)
|I'm the teal jacket waving like a goof.|
It was insane how the elevation can have such an effect! I mean I ran 9 miles the week before..I can't run a couple blocks??

We won, by the way. Team awesome...we can't help it!
|Chobani rep, me, fitmixer dietician Candace, Julie, Ashley|
|Thanks Melissa for carrying all my junk! *Must bring bag for hiking next time.*|
I mean this was a serious hike. We took lots of "photo stops." (aka time to catch our breath!)
How do I know this? My right leg is so sore that I'm hobbling like an old lady today!!
The next morning at bootcamp I tried to make up for it by leading with my left leg in most of the exercises.
|That's my blue booty on the right.|
I had a lot of fun meeting people at the different fitness activities. It really helped to have something to do while meeting people and something to talk about.
Like, "wow I'm dying on this run...is bootcamp over yet??"
**Be prepared for more BLEND talk on the blog this week!**
I had an amazing time and have a newfound confidence in my meeting-new-people skills. Believe me I'm miles away from my "Uncomfortable" post and I need to do a reflection post on this to hopefully help those that have some of the same hesitations that I had going into the weekend.
Have a great Monday friends!!

What was a recent booty kicking workout you had?
Does high altitude affect you?
Many of the photos at the bootcamps were taken by Janetha at Meals & Moves. I appreciate the bazillion photos she took on the trip!
