I did something last night that was a bit outside of my comfort zone. I think it’s important to occasionally do things that make you a little scared, as you normally end up walking away saying, “I’m so glad that I did that.”
Last night I ventured over to the other side of the city, the Federal Hill neighborhood, for a Baltimore Healthy Living Blogger happy hour at the Rowhouse Grille. The bar opened up a room on the second floor just for us, and believe me those $4 glasses of wine definitely came in handy as an icebreaker for the initial meeting.
It’s funny walking into a room full of girls very much like you. With a passion for fitness, writing, running, healthy eating, adventures – or in most cases, all the above. I’ve come to realize throughout the past couple of years the average person doesn’t find it quite as riveting as I do to discuss injury rehabilitation, different brands of running shoes, and my love/hate relationship with hot yoga.
Last night wasn’t the case. And it was really cool.

In short, my hope is that last night was the start of some new friendships. I had the opportunity to meet eight other awesome Baltimore-based girls, who all have quite the story to share. Their own blogs are listed below.
