Inspiration

This year has been a real test for everyone and I am sending all of the squad a huge HUG and hope you stay well.

I started to think about what Strong By Strand means. It has become my platform to share my helath and wellness journey in the hope that I help someone else along the way.

Thats a pretty lofty goal and one that I did not take very seriously, and that changes now. I am committing to making this the best platform it can be so be on the lookout for lots of new content.

I promise no doomscrolling or difficult phyical challenges will be coming your way. The best way forward is one step at a time and with this blog and a each other we can keep moving in the right direction.

Stay Strong,

Coach Phyllis

Bloggin again!

Bloggin again!

Hey Squad,

I have not forgotten about you over the last several months, but my blog fell out of the top ten things I need to pay attention to.  Its been so busy with 90% amazing events like my daughter Laura’s wedding, family vacations and re connecting with old friends. 10% has been challenging, events like a concussion and post concussion syndrome, losing a dear young man and my personal summer (aka menopause).

But thru it all, running kept me sane.  I love all kinds of exercise but running is like home to me.  So if you are up to it, I will be taking you along the ride as I return to Fall race season.

First up – Rock and Roll VA Beach.  Or otherwise known as phyllis vs. Hurricane like winds and rain.

I discovered the movie From Fat to the Finish line on Amazon video the other day and as luck would have it, some of the runners featured in the movie will be there at a screening on Saturday night and they have a booth at the expo.  I am excited to meet them because they are all dealing with the same issues I have – keeping the weight off and staying healthy. They were also featured on the Another Mother Runner podcast

I will close this post sitting with a tennis ball on my hamstring, and sharing with you my race day mantra:

She believed she could, so she did. 

Cheerfully yours,
