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.
Julie has been running for eight years and gives credit to her husband, Bill, for getting her started. She has maintained a good fitness level but he encourages her to include running in her exercise plan. When not running, Julie enjoys body pump at the Y and biking on the greenway. Over the past year Julie has had the opportunity to coach the Beginner No Boundaries, Funner Runner Half Marathon and 10k Training programs from the Fleet Feet High Point Store. Currently, she coaches No Boundaries in Greensboro. The most rewarding part about coaching the beginner group is seeing the smile on their face after completing their first 5k race and shouting "I did it!"
