It's Saturday night and it's Ladies' Night . . . what a great time!
Saturday night was the 3 Rivers Running Company's 2nd annual Ladies' Night Out sale. This event is held at the only running specialty store in Northeast Indiana. I attended last year's event and definitely place it in the category of "very valuable" to my growth as a runner. Just like last year, I learned so much, met so many people, and had such a great time.
Well, for starters - I didn't know that some running skirts have compression shorts under them while others have an attached wicking brief. I have always wondered what, if anything, was inside, but you don't just get to ask strangers on the street or just lift up the skirt at the store (that's kind of perv, isn't it?). Anyway - I learned it now so I won't have to be peeping.
To top off the evening, I had arranged with my running partners "C" and "L" to come along with me (bummer that "L" stood us up). I had also promoted this event with my Spring Into Training Participants and 5 of them were there (including 3 of the gals I hung out with on Friday night until 1 a.m. - GREAT to see you "B", "R", & "M" - and it was great to see "R's" daughter "M" . . . thanks for coming along.
A week ago, Kimbelry from Healthstrides asked if we were coming up for the sale and we jumped on the chance to meet up. It was at last year's event that "C" and I met Kimberly. She's a GEM! We haven't seen her since the W.O.O.F. back in November (I can't really believe it's been 6 months- let's not let 6 more months pass before we see you again!) A few days ago, Holly from Rustbeltrunner suggested we get a bloggy photo at this event - FAB idea. I love running . . . and blogging, because you get to meet awesome people like Kimberly and Holly.
