IronWoman Tara Norton is Finding Strength Through Adversity


Triathlete, Ultra-Marathon Runner and Coach Tara Norton shares her secrets to finding strength through adversity

Multi-talented athlete Tara Norton joins Sara Gross and Alyssa Godesky to tell her story of finding strength through adversity.  Tara explains how she ran a double Tara Norton, Triathlonmarathon with a stress fracture in her femur and lived to tell the tale. A former professional triathlete, Tara had 25 Top 10 placings in long distance races during her career. Now a coach and a mom, Tara sets her sights on longer races and in 2016 took on the Ultraman triathlon in Hawaii – 10km (6.2mi) swim, 421km (261mi) bike, 84km (52.4mi) run. Known for mental toughness, Tara shares her wisdom and answers questions from the Women for Tri Facebook group. Sarah McPherson also drops by to tell us about TriEqual’s new initiative, Change Makers.  You can apply for the Change Makers Initiative here.  And we also hear how Alyssa is handling two Ironmans in two weeks in New Zealand.
