I'm an honourary Woo-Hoo!!

That's right blogger folks. I bet your jealous, and you should be!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Lily, her friend Ann, Marlene, and Tiger yesterday at the Scotiabank Expo. It was awesome to meet some of the people whose blogs lift your spirits daily. What a beautiful bunch of people they are! Lily is soo sweet, just like her blog reads, much like a Mother Hen. And she told us we were honourary woo-hoos!! Who can beat that?

Marlene and Tiger were also very nice, and nervous about their first marathon. I saw Marlene come in at the finish line, and her face was so full of pride and excitement. She looked amazing!! I don't think I've ever looked that good finishing. Congratulations Marlene!! You are a marathoner!! I am so happy for you!

Unfortunately I didn't see Tiger come in, so I hope she had a good race, and congratulations. You are amazing Tiger to train and run a marathon while enrolled in university full-time. I don't know how you fit it all in, but you are an inspiration.

Also congratulations to Lily and Vickie on your half marathons!!

As for me, I decided to run the half. It ran it in about 2:02:3-. Respectable, I decided I was better to sit out the full for this one. I have other fulls planned for the fall, so it is no biggy.

A picture of our blogger get together to follow. Thanks for reading!

Hi Melanie, I just read on Marlene blog that you also saw her finish! I'm sorry I missed you, I was hoping to meet you. Maybe next time we'll be cheering you into the finish of your marathon!

We're so special!

It was so great to finally meet you and awesome to see you in the finishing chute!

Can't wait to hear how your race went.

And on a completely unrelated note, you're used to be on WB, right?! I just thought of that after leaving the expo yesterday...

Duh! It seems my post-marathon mushy-brain missed the last part of your post, about deciding on the half. Congrats on a great time! I'd say you have done enough fulls this year already, especially with more to come. Crazy lady. :p
