Then, I moved up to walking 25 minutes and running five minutes and slowly moving it up to running 30 minutes. It’s what lead me to my first 5k race.

Last week I returned from a speaking engagement at Fitbloggin 2013. I spoke on a panel on monetizing your blog. My point of view came from the ” don’t quit your day job, just enrich it.” Phyllis4fitness features many of the great activities we have been able to bring here at our office thru the initiatives I am working on with an awesome team. Also, the article that I was featured in on HuffingtonPost made it to the AOL welcome screen. Not the picture I would have chosen for all my co workers from my AOL days to see me at, but hopefully they read the article. All in all a great way to end June. Signed, Phyllis4fitness
