As we head into the Fall, I thought it would be a good idea to do an introduction post. There have been lots of new followers and questions coming in so this is a good time.

I recently became a volunteer run/walk coach for the Team in Training charity of the Leukemia and Lymphoma society and I had to write an introduction to the team so I think I will use that for this post.

Please excuse that this will be in the third person!

Phyllis Strand 

NASM CPT- Health and Nutrition Coach

Team in Training Alumni 

Nike Women’s Half  2013

Chicago Marathon  2018

Phyllis is a dedicated personal trainer and wellness coach based in Norwalk CT. She also works fulltime at a New York advertising agency.

Her introduction to team in training started in 2012 when she began to run her way to a health lifestyle. 

Dedicating her miles to the cause made it all worth it as she was able to learn more about the organization and the mission while training with the NYC chapter.  She ran both the Nike Women’s Half in Washington DC in 2013 and the Chicago Marathon in 2018 with the team.  

She has also completed the NYC marathon and over 15 half marathons. 

Phyllis has experience working with all levels of athletes and looks forward to using the  lessons she learned while working fulltime, training and fundraising to help her team reach (and exceed) their goals.

Phyllis lives in Norwalk, CT  with her husband Chuck, dog Lola and loves working out to keep up with her three grown kids, their spouses and grandchildren. 

I would love to learn more about what you need to do to get started or keep going on your healthy lifestyle.
