I am going to Los Angeles in October for the SHAPE Magazine Blogger Meet and Tweet! I couldn't ask for a better opportunity to find fitness motivation. I'll spend the day surrounded by fitness bloggers, SHAPE magazine editors, industry experts, and amazing sponsors! I'm certain that attendees will have a blast checking our the latest trends and new products! Even though I am not at the top of my fitness game, I've learned that the Fit Community is a supportive and welcoming one! I think mostly because everyone remembers their starting point to get fit (or get back to being fit)! All levels, body types, and age groups will surely be represented! I can hardly wait!!!

I LOVE receiving inbox surprises when I check my email! Don't you?! Today's tidbit that has led to such a giddy feeling that has lasted ALL day: An exclusive invitation to the Blogger Meet & Tweet with SHAPE magazine! My RSVP was sent immediately and it's official, I'm going!
With a flooded email inbox, it's easy to miss some great opportunities. Trust me, I've missed out on a grand thing or two (or 100) simply because I missed the email. Lesson: check your email closely - you don't want to miss out! I'm definitely not missing out on this gem!
Did you know that Fitness Magazine and SHAPE Magazine have merged? Check out posts from earlier this year to learn more: SHAPE Magazine and Fitness Magazine to Become One Super Magazine and Merging Fitness Magazine into SHAPE to Create Leading Media Brand in Women's Active Lifestyle Category.
In 2013 I attended the West Coast Fitness Magazine Blogger Meet and Tweet (#FitBlogLA) and had an AMAZING time!
The #FitBlogLA event is where I had the chance to meet some of my favorite fitness bloggers in person! I still keep in touch with a couple of them. I can hardly wait to see them in October! I get to reunite with Melissa who blogs at The ValentineRD (check out her post about the 2013 event and her picture of all of the swag goodness) and Melissa who blogs at Melissa Running It. These SoCal moms are in their 40's (like me) and have hero status in my book! They remind me that you CAN be fit in your forties! Check out our time doing Pilates together in a blog post from earlier this year: WundaBar Pilates San Diego.
The 2015 event will make a return visit to the Annenberg Community Beach House. Take a peek at the picture below from my first Meet & Tweet. The venue was amazing and the energy was awesome! I had a migraine that day but pushed through and made the drive up from San Diego. TOTALLY worth it.
I didn't see any media postings about a Blogger Meet and Tweet for 2014 so I was absolutely THRILLED when I received an invitation for 2015.
Stay tuned for my event post and look out for the hashtag #ShapeMeetTweet as I am sure that there will be a lot of social media shares!
Will I see YOU there? Please leave me a comment if you are! I'd love to follow you on social media if I am not following you already!
