  12. Taconya Goar says:

    I am challenging myself in 2013 by running my very first half marathon. Running has become such a big part of my life and the added health benefits are a great bonus. I’m training for PR’s, making sure I do extra stretching and yoga for injury prevention, and will be adding more strength training to improve my all-around running performance.

  13. I got a new job at the end of last year, so I’m working to stay up on all the industry trends and ingrain myself in the new culture.

    I’m also working on a half marathon PR and keeping up with CrossFit!

    By taking time to properly introduce the passion of running to my daughter (a heart patient) who enjoys spending time on the pavement with me even though it is difficult to keep up. As runners, we often get so focused on our training that we unknowingly overlook those who actually encourage and support our goals and missions.

We will complete a team 5k in May–together!
