Nearly two years after meeting and saying we should go for a run, I finally met up with Ben for a fab little 8km jog around the Cotswold Water Park.
We met both at a running/writing workshop and kept in touch through Twitter. Mutual interests of running/blogging/adventure means something to talk about over coffee which lasted longer than the run.
Twitter is great for meeting people; I’ve met quite a few random twitter strangers in real life after chatting virtually. A lot of the time it seems to do fitness type stuff. I ran down Victoria Peak in Hong Kong with a guy I met on Twitter. I cycled London to Paris with a load of strangers after chatting to Sophie Radcliffe on there.
Disclaimer: always stay vigilant and try not to meet up with weirdos, exercise caution!
Luckily all the people I’ve met are bloody brilliant 🙂
