Who


Anyone can attend! Bloggers, blog readers and anyone interested in networking with bloggers are invited.

What


The BLEND Retreat (named so because we wanted to combine “blogger” with “friend”) is a relaxed, laid-back retreat for healthy living, food and fitness bloggers across North America. Instead of focusing on seminars and speakers, the focus will be on friendship and having a weekend away to get to know one another in real life.

When


Blend Retreat 2014 is scheduled for June 6-8, 2014 in Park City, UT. If you’d like to come, go to the Registration page and find details there.

The Hosts


Lindsay Wright – NASM-certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor and stay-at-home mommy all rolled into one.  Author of the healthy living blog, Lindsay’s List, Lindsay is crazy about brownies, making lists and breaking a sweat!

Janetha Gallegos – Author of the food and fitness blog meals & moves.  Janetha, a Salt Lake City native, is married and has two dogs whom she considers her children, because she likes animals better than most humans. She can be found at the gym, in the kitchen, or sleeping.

Lauren Martin – Author of the healthy living blog, Me And The Mountains, Lauren enjoys living life in her new home state of Colorado.  She’s one of those lucky few who gets to hike and ski and frolic outside.  You can find her with a Chaco tan line most anytime of year.

Reply

Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut February 8, 2012 at 11:32 pm

Hey I just wanted to point out there isn’t a ticket cost anywhere (that I can see) on the site.

I think I remember Lindsay saying it was $75 is that correct?

Thanks! :-)
