ABOUT ME:Taryn square

I am a ultra road/trail runner whose running background began at age 8 when I ran my first race, a 1-miler, with my uncle who is an avid marathon runner. My journey continued into high school and on through college where I ran cross-country and track.  Now, running distances from local 5ks all the way up to ultra-marathons. Currently, my primary focus is on training for longer endurance races. When not pounding the pavement or pushing through a grueling trail run, I enjoy hiking with my 5 dogs. I currently work for Georgia Game Changers Running Co. Savannah and hold training certifications from Road Runners of America- Certified Long Distance Running Coach, International Sports Sciences Association- Certified Fitness Trainer. Background with coaching at many different levels include, High School Cross Country, Local Running Groups, One on One coaching for 5k-Marathon Distances.
