Bio: Tara's athletic career stretches back to her childhood; she played competitive sports (fast pitch softball, basketball, volleyball) in high school and also played basketball in college. In 2001, Tara decided to take on the challenge of a marathon - she finished the NYC marathon and was instantly hooked on endurance sports. Tara has since completed a total of 8 marathons including Chicago, Miami, Boston and NYC (5 times). In the midst of marathon training and racing, Tara was introduced to the sport of triathlon and completed her first race seven years ago - an Olympic distance race in the Hamptons - and instantly realized her true passion was with the sport of triathlon.

After running Boston in 2006 and setting a PR, Tara decided it was time to take a break from marathons and step up to the next big challenge: Ironman. Four months later, she completed Ironman Canada. Since then she has completed 5 more Ironman races including Ironman Lake Placid (2007, 2008, 2009), Ironman Hawaii (2007), and Ironman Cozumel (2010). Long course racing aside, Tara's true passion and success has come in medium and short course racing with numerous podium and overall finishes.
