So, I forgot to mention in my last post that I injured myself on Saturday morning of the Summit. I’ve been getting this on-again-off-again pain in my knee after running over the last several months, and naturally it decided to rear its ugly head during an attempt at a morning 4-miler with a few of the girls. I made it approx. 1 mile before my knee was in so much pain, I couldn’t go another step. I had to turn around and limp back to the hotel. It was not fun. I share all this because I was sure this would ruin any chance of me participating in Sunday’s 5k Fun Run, but thankfully it ended up being more of a site-seeing walk than a race!
I took a quick shot with the Rocky statue and while, sadly, my dreams of climbing to the top of those stairs with that famous music playing in my head were dashed, I went up as far as I could and still got a stair shot!
The entire crew (those of us who were willing to get up at the crack of dawn, that is) posing in front of the “Love”statue.
After the walk, we went back to the hotel for an oatmeal bar, provided by Quaker Oats.
I topped mine with cinnamon, flax seeds, and a little honey.
Before heading back to my room to pack up, all the Charlotte bloggers who attended stopped for a quick photo opp.
And once, we were packed, Kelly, Stephanie and I took one last roomie shot (Tanya had already taken off for the airport at this point).
After lunch, I headed to the airport for a long trip home, but made sure to pack some goodies from my HLS swag bag.
The summit was definitely inspiring to say the least, and I am so grateful for all the great people I met, in addition, to the valuable info. I definitely hope to stay in touch with them all and attend more blogging conferences in the future!
