Two years ago, in 2012, I discovered that there was a blogging conference called fitbloggin. I discovered it as it was going on and totally missed out. In 2013, fitbloggin was held in Portland and I just couldn’t swing the airfare. When fitbloggin 2014 was announced to be held in Savannah, I booked my conference pass as soon as I could and reserved a room!
The week leading up to fitbloggin, I was pretty excited. Definitely ready to head out to Savannah, especially as the pics started in the facebook group prior to Thursday, but for some reason, I could not motivate myself to pack. So I did what EVERYONE does… and waited until last minute 🙂 (No lie, most of this recap is going to be in pictures, because EVERYONE LOVES PICTURES!)
By the time I finally did get packed up, my roommate was already en route and my pug knew something was up…
There was a terrible disaster when I got to the airport… apparently, even though I booked my flight in February, they oversold the flight (as they are legally allowed to do) and when you are the last to check in, you get screwed… which I was and thought I would get screwed. I spoke with the gate peeps and with a manager and after calling for volunteers, was finally able to get seated on a flight. And when I got to Savannah I set an alarm to check in at 9am Saturday morning for my return flight.
Kat picked me up from the airport and we rolled back to the hotel and I got checked in!
While I was getting situated, Kat was hard at work:
After stopping and dumping stuff in the hotel, we went down to the reception and then headed out for FOOD! I landed around 5:30 and got to the hotel at 6. I was BEGGING Kat for food throughout the reception — hehehe.
Linzie crashed our dinner date, via facetime and we had a nice chat and showed him ALL OF THE SUSHI!
After that we strolled around Savannah and headed back to the hotel to rest up.
Kat and I went down to the hotel gym to get in a workout in our inknburn and we saw Erica at the gym
We met up with Shannyn at breakfast the next morning and decided to shower up, hit a session and then explore savannah!
and then we met up with Brandon
and we all had a beer and a shot. We walked around Savannah with our beers (open container laws of GA – three words, beer. to. go.).
As we were walking around Savannah, both Shannyn and I discussed how things move at a much slower pace in the south.
