One Month until FitBloggin’11!

We can hardly believe it either! Just one more month until we mix and mingle in Baltimore!

Our apologies for the lack of updates. We’ve had a new addition in the FitBloggin’ camp. He decided to start early, throwing the rest of the staff (me) off schedule. Have no fear. the conference is still full steam ahead and we’ve been making some amazing progress!

In this update:

  • Last Day to Reserve Your Rooms!
  • Schedule Updates
  • Couch to 5k Updates
  • Sponsors
  • Have Questions?

Last Day to Reserve Your Rooms!

Today is the last day to reserve rooms in the FitBloggin’ room block. Friday and Saturday rooms are still available. However, the hotel is completely booked the Thursday night of the conference. I have word from the hotel that  The Residence Inn downtown and the SpringHill Suites Downtown still have openings. Click here to also see additional hotels within walking distance of the conference.

Schedule Updates

We continue to update the schedule online. The conference official kicks off Friday morning with the New Balance 5k/1mile Fun Run/Walk and ends Saturday evening at 5 p.m. after our keynote speakers, Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy. However, there will be early registration and a small informal mixer Thursday evening. Click here to see the current schedule.

Couch to 5k Updates

We are currently in Week 5 of our Couch to 5k series for those training to run at the conference. Even if you are following your own training plan, be sure to check out the posts and participate in the discussions. Holly Perkins is sharing some great information and is currently taking running-related questions. Click here to check out the latest post and ask your question today!


FitBloggin’ 11 will no longer be accepting sponsorships at this time. Interest in the event has been overwhelming yet again this year. Please click here to see the list of current sponsors and be sure to reach out to them out on Twitter!

Have Questions?

We are currently in the process of writing the conference FAQ. If you have questions about anything from logistics to sessions, please let us know by replying to this e-mail or leaving a comment on the blog.

We’ll be in touch soon with more updates. See you in a month!

    Hi Roni,
    Do you know if there is parking at the hotel for non guests and if they will validate it for Fit Bloggin? I won't be staying at the hotel, and I'll have a vehicle to get back and forth.

      There is a parking garage but they will not validate. Even guests have to pay. If I remember correctly (I will have to check with them) it's $14 a day.

    I hate to have to ask this, but is there a way to transfer my registration to another person? My friend and I have found ourselves unable to go and need to sell our tickets. That is, if we can even find people to buy them! I'm so bummed I'll miss it!! 🙁

    I have FitBloggin on the brain today!

    What do I wear to the conference? I glanced at the agenda & Zumba is in between two other sessions I'd wear business casual clothes to but can I get away with active wear for sessions? Do people change in between? I'm a nerd! I know but I was just curious.
