Today is a big day for Peanut Butter Runner. One year ago I launched this healthy living blog!
I thought it would be fun to recap some of the highlights of the year and I’ve included a little video at the end of this post with some thoughts and news about the future of the blog.
So without further ado, here are the major milestones from my first year of blogging.
I wrote my first post on April 16, 2010 – Sauces, Strawberries and Squats. I think it’s a pretty telling demonstration of what PBR is all about – food, fun and fitness!
I ate a lot of overnight oats…and you guys loved them too! The overnight oats recipe is the most popular post on my blog!
A delicious breakfast, especially for the warm summer mornings that are soon to come.
I am dreaming of running this race again one day!
I taught a LOT of BodyPump classes! I love BodyPump and have so much fun teaching it! I also started teaching general strength training classes at another Y. Read all about how I got my start teaching group exercise here.
I set a half-marathon PR. I finished the Thunder Road Half Marathon in 1:52:12.
I was able to leverage my Marine Corps Marathon training to set a new PR! Half marathons are awesome – half the distance, twice the fun! 🙂
I know that I’ve talked about it so much lately but I am so happy that I decided to go through with teacher training. It was a transformational experience and truly one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
And so far, so good! I am completely in love with teaching group exercise/yoga and am so grateful for all of the opportunities I’ve had over the past year. I’m so pleased with the direction that things have been going lately and feel inspired and insanely happy!
I took my passion for teaching to the blog with my first video post. Foam Rolling 101 was a big success and I’m looking forward to many more video tutorials if you guys are game! I take requests. I know that “Toned Arms 101” is one you want to see…what else?
And speaking of videos, I filmed a short thank you/news video for you today! A million thank you’s for being the BEST blog readers ever!
Here’s to an awesome first year for PBR and many more to come!
