Run Eat Tweet AZ Meetup

This weekend I went on my first meet up with my new running group RunEatTweetAZ!!  They are such a fun group of people!  Most of us "met" on IG and through the blogging world.  Meeting this way allows for us to really get to know each other ahead of time, completely diminishing any nervous, awkward, or forced conversations.  It's hard to believe that this was the first time that I had talked to most of these people face to face!

We met at Camelback Mountain to hike the Echo Canyon Trail.  To say we were hiking was maybe the understatement of the century.  We were straight up scaling rocks, holding on to support rails, or large boulders, for the majority of the time!  What a rush it was!!


According to my Strava, we gained just over 1900 feet in elevation!  The hike was about 2.8 miles round trip.

 I was on a "hiker's high" for the majority of the day, elated from the amazing views, new friendships, and great workout.  Even though I didn't feel sore that day, let me tell you, its been two days now and I am still sore in my shoulders and butt!  I cant wait to add this hike to my cross training regime once the weather cools down a bit.

I am also super excited about my next meet up with Run Eat Tweet AZ!  Next month we are going to run miles with meaning, doing a virtual 5K for a one of our members, Traci's daughter's friend, a local 21 year old named Courtney who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of Liver Cancer.  If you are local we would love to have you join us on August 10!  If you can't make it, that's the best part about a virtual run, you can complete it in your own time and place.  The most import thing is showing our support for Courtney and her family.  You can find out more information and register here.
