What I've Been Working On This Summer

I can't believe it's already August! Summer is almost over, and I can smell the faint smell of pumpkins as I (impatiently) await fall.

As much as I hate to use the term "busy," that's exactly what I've been. Between my day job, Work For Your Beer, vacations, and generally trying to maintain my sanity, it's been a busy summer. 

A lot's been going on over at Work For Your Beer behind the scenes, where we have exciting things in store coming this fall. But in addition to what people don't see, I've been busying keeping their blog updated with new content and making fun videos for social. (But really, this video involved running, beer, and donuts--amazing!)

In addition to my content, we've taken on some contributing writers whose content I edit. I love that people are excited to get involved in growing the beer fitness community.

I also recently took a media trip to The Omni Grove Park Inn. If you ever plan to visit Asheville, you must go. The views are gorgeous, and there's so much history. You'll be able to read all about my experience on the Work For Your Beer blog soon!

Since I updated y'all on what I was working on in a post this spring, I wanted to share what else I've been working on this year in case you missed it.
