A Love of Running

Tara knew she had a love for fitness and exercise as a child. She started running at the young age of 7 and knew right away this was her sport. She played numerous other sports but running was her niche. She enjoyed this sport so much that she ran up until she gave birth to her four children. Tara also completed the NY Marathon 8 months pregnant. Tara has completed 42 Marathons and hundred of races worldwide.

In addition, she has won many 5Ks and placed in the top of many long distance runs. In 2008 Tara placed in the top 500 women for the NYC Marathon.

Everyone has their legacy and for Tara her legacy has always been helping people to get fit!
