I’m now an editor at Runner’s World

I am very pleased to announce I recently accepted a position as associate editor of multimedia at Runner’s World and I literally could not be more excited! This news is truly a testament to how running has completely changed my life during the past year. Before I started running, I was committed to becoming a traditional journalist- maybe breaking into the political journalism realm- but, as I continued to run and blog about health and wellness I realized how huge of an impact health and fitness journalism has on communities.

As more studies develop in regards to health and wellness, making exercise and nutrition accessible to everyone is becoming more and more important. Once I started to recognize this, I made a decision to focus on health and wellness reporting so I could make exercise, and especially running, accessible for anyone. Although I’ve never claimed to be an expert, I think through reporting on different issues pertaining to running, people are able to get the information they need to start their own “journey to fit.” Runner’s World is dedicated to educating and informing readers about all-things running and is focused on speaking to all runners, regardless of skill or experience level. I am really looking forward to becoming a part of a team that has such a strong dedication to spreading the message of health.

While accepting this position means I will be leaving my family and my closest friends to move to Runner’s World headquarters in Emmaus, PA, it’s going to be an amazing opportunity that I’m sure will open up doors for my career. I just wanted to send out an update to everyone and to thank all of my friends and family (and my dedicated Fit Girl Happy Girl readers!) who’ve been so supportive of me during this whole process!

  1. This is incredible news! I couldn’t be more excited for you! Now maybe we CAN run a race together someday, you’re only 1.5 hrs away! Congratulations, this is well-deserved!

  2. Congratulations! (I sing with your dad occasionally and he sent me your blog). What a dream come true! I, too, know that running changed my life and helped me through a few cancer adventures. Looking forward to reading your work on RW! Liza (www.marathonb4mastectomy.wordpress.com)

  3. One more congrats to you! Though I don’t know you beyond enjoying your blog, I was genuinely excited to read this. Seems like a great opportunity. My wife grew up in the Allentown/Emmaus area and it seems like there is some good running amongst other things of course.
