Connecting with an old Friend

Out of the blue today I had a nice surprise and was reconnected with an old friend that I had lost touch with.  How it happened to begin with is not important now but I am super excited about seeing her again.

Since I know she will be checking out my blog I thought I would leave her a surprise.


We have already made plans to get together later this weekend.  Talking with her today made me realize how much I have missed her.  About 5 years has past since we last spoke but on the phone today you would have never guessed that at all.  We picked up right where we left off.

Trail run in the morning is all mapped out.  Now I just need to make sure these legs are ready for 16 miles of beautiful hills.  I will post a product review about the new fuel belt I purchased.  I used it last week but thought I would wait one more week before I offered my opinion.

How Cool Robin!

You know, in my experience, true friends are the ones that time and distance cannot come between. No matter how long it's been or haow far you have gone, you both seem to pick back up like you have been next dorr neighbors and just finished talking the day before about life..........

I would so love to be hitting the trails tomorrow with you guys. But, I have to take the beemer to Touring Sport int he morning for her 24k mile checkup.

Have a GREAT run!

It's always great when you are able to reconnect with a friend you havent talked to in years.

I wish I were doing my 14 tomorrow mornings on the trails

Cant wait for your fuel belt review as I am in the market for a new one

Awwwwwhhh that's wonderful! I always love friendships like that :-)

Wait . . .which belt did you get again? I'll have to go back and check. I so need a new one already, I just can't freakin decide *sigh*

BTW are those your bib numbers in the background? How cute is that!

Good luck on your 16 miler tomorrow!

I love those friends with whom you can pick up right where you left off no matter how long it's been since you last chatted-invaluable!

How nice to reconnect with an old friend! I have some old friends that I've known since I was a kid and whenever we get back together it's like we never grew up (so silly!).

Anyway, hope you have a great trail run this weekend and fun with your friend. Thanks for the comment about my Montana adventures.

That's nice, it's always nice to get pinged from the past.

On another note are they all you bibs and bling on the wall behind you? Very cool!

Best of luck on your 16 miler. Sounds like great fun.

OK ... I'm slow, it took me until this morning to figure out the symbols (more correctly, I had to find my Japanese Character Dictionary). Cool.

Hello Robin!!!! Yep, I'm a blogger. Very new at it. Just need to keep updating it.

Hope you and Scott are doing well. Tell Scott I'm doing 40 miles on Saturday and would love some company. No worries .... I'm not hammering out the speed this week :)
