Fit Blogger We Love: Peanut Butter Runner

On Peanut Butter Runner, Jen chronicles her healthy lifestyle as a yoga teacher, marathon runner and healthy cook. And her anecdotes about her life with her college-sweetheart-turned hubby and their dog Sullie are too adorable to miss! The “fit, fueled and fun” blogger has an infectious smile in every race or exercise photo, which makes fitness look so enjoyable (because it can be)!

Five things I can’t live without: Garmin 305, peanut butter, Manduka yoga mat, iPhone and of course my sweet husband and golden retriever!

My favorite way to work out: I love running, practicing yoga and strength training.

My biggest indulgence: Dessert…pretty much daily! It’s an emergency situation when there is no ice cream in our freezer. Also, I love to bake so it’s not unusual to have homemade treats around the house.

I’m happiest when: I’m teaching. I teach yoga as well as BodyPump and other strength training classes. I am so motivated by the energy that my students bring to class and by their commitment to be healthy and do something good for their body and mind. No matter what is going on in my life, teaching always puts a smile on my face and takes me to a happy place!

My “I Did It” moment: Completing yoga teacher training. I struggled with the decision to commit to the training. Was it the right time? Was I ready? Could I make it work financially? Could I handle the time requirements? Eventually, I realized there was never going to be a perfect time so I took a leap of faith and went for it. The 200-hour yoga teacher training ended up being a transformational experience that set so many positive things in motion. It gave me confidence and enthusiasm to accomplish personal goals and inspired me to live a fulfilled and passionate life.
