One of the main reasons for coming to the Garden Party in Sharon Springs, NY was of course to meet Josh and Brent. With that though came some fear. Not fear of meeting them because of fame, but a fear that they wouldn't be as genuine as they seemed. These are guys who have inspired me and many others to live their dreams and reassured us all that with desire and hard work, anything is possible.
I have been a huge fan of the Beekman Boys, watching their show, reading their books and blogs, and cheering them on while they ran the Amazing Race. They seemed so witty and good-hearted in my mind that I was afraid that they would not be in real life. Within the first 3 seconds of meeting these guys it was easy to see that they are as real and gracious as they come. No amount of fame has changed them, and it was truly a pleasure to meet them. I was a huge fan before, and somehow if it is even possible, I am a bigger fan tonight.
