The following is from Rebecca's website.
As the founder of Runner’s FUEL, she aims to inform and motivate competitive and recreational runners of all ages and fitness levels with creditable and practical nutritional information. Her ambition is to sort fact from fiction and provide a common-sense approach to eating and running well.
1. When I started Runner's FUEL my main mission (and still is) to educate runners of all fitness levels with creditable yet practical nutrition information. Creating a blog and a social media presence was my first step since it was an inexpensive way to communicate with like minded people.
2. With an online platform I have been able to reach runners from all across the world! Many consulting and other media opportunities have stemmed from online connections. You never know who is reading, following, or re-tweeting your messages.
3. My advice for anyone starting a blog is to find a "ninch" and stick with it. Also be transparent and vulnerable to let people get to know the real person behind the keyboard. Most dietitians can relate to many ordinary people with the same struggles or life events. People enjoy feeling connected on a personal level not just throwing out information.
4. My favorite post was my first post back from maternity leave and trying hard to figure all this out and how to balance. It was written straight from the heart and I even re-read it when I need a pick me up! My Personal Journey back to the Runner Within - This is a daily journey!
