Recently (well it was awhile ago but this post has been brewing in my head recently) I've read two other blog posts about this topic, specifically here and here.
If you knew me "in real life" you would know that I am an introvert. It's pretty apparent and I actually try to avoid certain social situations from time to time. I also don't like talking on the phone unless it is with Mike or my mom.
It's not like I don't have friends, but I have my select group of friends that I like to hang out with.
Having this blog and joining twitter recently is starting to change that, I reach out to people more often than I normally would.
Some of my internet friends are becoming real friends, like when Mike and I met Rena and her boyfriend Stefan!
Since then we have asked Rena to be on our Seneca 7 relay team and we are going to run in a half marathon together.
I'm also running in a relay with Ali in about a month and I can't wait!
And just tonight I was having a twitter conversation with C, someone who I have never met, about the possibility of running in the Cape Cod Marathon relay (what's with all the relays?) with me and Mike and I think we are going to do it!
There are so many other people who I want to meet and I hope that someday this will come true, but do you all count as my friends without ever having met? Yes, I would say that you do.
Not many of my friends are interested in running and I don't think any of my friends are interested in running AND blogging. As a result, I don't really get to enjoy this sport that I love so much with them (but I am going to go to Turbo Kick with my friend Marissa on Monday since I promised!)
Therefore, keep on being my internet friends and let's enjoy this sport we love so much together! And hopefully someday we will get to meet in real life.
How do you feel about internet friends? Anyone semi-close to Rochester interested in a blogger meetup sometime?
