Blogger buddies are the best

When I started blogging back in 2008 I never would have guessed that I would meet so many great people.There are a few in particular that I have really enjoyed following along on their adventures.

I "met" Alison when I first signed up for Ironman Arizona, a race she had also registered for and it was fun being able to talk to her about training and racing in the lead up to the ironman.  When I got injured and had to pull out of the race it was nice to be able to live vicariously through her and watch as she crossed the finish line and become and ironman.

A few months back I commented on one of her blog posts. She had just finished her last freezing swim before IMAZ and had a picture on her blog of her post-swim...( yes I stole this from your blog Alison...hope you don't mind!)

Anyone that knows me well realizes that I can't stand the cold and so when I saw this picture of Alison I had to comment on how awesome her mittens were.  And the next thing I knew....

Yes...she sent me a pair....

She is the bomb...

Now my digits will never be cold again.


  1. As someone who has actually tried on those pair of mittens, Alison is INDEED the bomb. And Canadians really are the NICEST people. :)

  2. Aww shucks - thanks! And I totally agree... I love how blogging has introduced me to new friends from all over the place!

  3. Totally awesome, I love those mittens too :) It is neat to make connections....
