Tara is one of those "late in life" runners starting when she was 48. After making some serious life changes and losing a significant amount of weight, she took up running. It took Tara 6 weeks to be able to run a mile nonstop in about 18 minutes. 7 weeks later, she ran in the Women's Only 5K and was hooked on racing. 2 years later she ran her 1st marathon. Running has taught Tara a lot about herself and has shown her that you can do anything once you put your mind to it!!
Fun fact: Tara played coed softball in the Fall. Her favorite race is the Law Enforcement 5K because of the charity it benefits, the Special Olympics.
