Welcome to Peanut Butter Runner. I’m Jen and I live in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am a personal trainer, yoga teacher, marketing and social media freelancer, blogger and published author. In September 2011 I left a six-year career in marketing and advertising (read the story) to pursue fitness, yoga and writing as my full-time work. These days I spend my time teaching yoga, training clients, writing and doing marketing and communications work. Here in Charlotte, I am a lead teacher and marketing director at Y2 Yoga and I train clients at Metro Fitness Club.

I am super passionate about empowering other women around their strength and the infinite possibilities that their lives hold. I am very grateful for a career that allows me to help others find their healthiest, happiest and strongest selves.

I published two books in 2015, Ultimate Plank Fitness: 101 Plank Exercises for a Strong Core, Killer Abs…and a Killer Body and The Complete Guide to Yoga Inversions: Learn How to Invert, Float and Fly with Inversions and Arm Balances. Both are available for purchase from Amazon and major retailers.


I started Peanut Butter Runner in 2010 and I blog about a variety of topics including (but not limited to…you never know what you might read here!) what I’m eating, recipes, workouts, running, general fitness/exercise topics, yoga, life balance, career development and my two sweet golden retrievers, Sullie and Zoey.

And yes…I eat a lot of peanut butter. 😉
