Strong Women

A few lines from the song

We are all surrounded by strong women! Since this is Women History Month, I want to talk about a few women around me that show their strength everyday. Carolyn is a pediatrician, a writer of book and short stories publish, a mother and a foster mom to 2 girls and is a triathlete. She wrote a story about me coaching her for her first triathlon. The story is, “Hey, 60”, in Running for Good (Chicken Soup for the Soul) book. Kathi but we all call her KT, is business owner and an Ironman. While KT was doing Timberman Half Ironman, her first triathlon, but she had a stroke during the race. KT has no fear and was determine that she was going back to Timberman and complete it. She completed that Half Ironman and other multiple halfs, full Ironmans and marathons since then. She believes go big or go home. Brenda, a heart tech in hospitals, a triathlete, running up Mt Washington again and runs marathons. Brenda wants to run Boston Marathon as a qualifier. Single mom and teacher, Diane, has brought up a strong smart daughter, is a marathoner and triathlete. Sarah is a marketing director with long work hours but still gets her triathlon training done. Kim, Colleen, Carla, Diana, Jackie and Amie are moms that have raised beautiful strong daughters and sons through tough times but are strong and still find time to do there own training. There are so many woman that I can go on and on. They all one thing in common, that is to find balance in their lives to work and train. Tell the women in your life that they are strong and beautiful. Stay safe and healthy! @pamhouck
