Short Workout,and a Blogger Meeting!

I did a short recovery workout this morning. It was supposed to be a 30-40 minute bike ride, but the stationary bike I like at the gym was taken. Since I didn't have time to wait, I just hopped on the treadmill and had a slowpoke walk, 1.55 miles in 30 minutes.

Later this morning, I got to meet Christina, runner extraordinaire and blogger of Lazy Bones Running, in the flesh! She's in the area on business, and she and her boyfriend came to town a little early to explore. It was so much fun to meet them both! After following Christina's blog for quite a while, and hearing her voice on a couple of podcast episodes, it was so cool to meet her in person! We had a yummy brunch at Guglehupf, then did a driving tour of the Duke campus and a walking tour of the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. Thanks, George, for taking this picture of the three of us:

Christina, John, and Lesley

Since I see the campus all work-week long, it was rather nice to see it through fresh eyes, and Christina and John were great company!

I found your blog via Chistina's blog which I follow since March 2010. Of course, I've just seen the image of your meeting with Christina at Duke Gardens. I'm a runner and I like following running blogs in the world.

I can't remember if I found you through Christina or her through you. Anyway, it's been great following both of you and seeing you in one photo is awesome! Have a good week!

Giorgio and Johann, it was a pleasure to meet Christina! She's just as nice as you'd imagine she is from her blog! Though she was in my area on business, we never would've met if it hadn't been for our running blogs! :)

Thanks for reading my last post and for your comment Lesley.
Enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer!
