If you read my other blog, Mommy Reporter, then you know that this past weekend I attended BlogHer 2012 in New York City. While I was there I met Kate Gosselin… you know, the reality show mom with eight kids and all the drama that happened with her and her ex-husband? Anyway, she made an appearance at the conference and I had a few moments to chat with her, and I casually mentioned that I heard that she now runs marathons.
As soon as I said that, it was like we had an instant connection. She began telling me that she does both marathons and half-marathons and how she is so “addicted” to running. I told her that I completely agree and that I’m currently training for the Rock n’ Roll marathon that will take place here in Las Vegas this December. She then told me that the Rock n’ Roll marathon series is one of her sponsors and that she will be running in the race too. And then… she actually took my information so that we could possibly chat at the race.
Now, do I really think we will connect at that race? Yes and no. Yes, because I believe that anything is possible, and no because I may be so nervous at the race that the last thing I will be thinking about is saying hi to Kate Gosselin. But whatever… we shall see and only time will tell.
But I did enjoy meeting her and I look forward to getting ready for this race… wish me luck!
