The Comeback Girl
Her story has really inspired a lot of people who have suffered injuries and have been unsure about how to train through them and get stronger again. Additionally, she has inspired and motivated some women who have wanted to test for the fire department. I have received emails and have had people approach me at certs asking about her, how she is doing, and have asked me to tell her how encouraged they were by her grit and heart.
These are some of the comments to her article:

Nice work, Tara. Your really ARE an inspiration to so many and I am incredibly proud of you - your tenacity, strength of will and character, and your incredibly big heart. When Tara comes to the gym, she lays it all out and gives every bit of what she has to give - no matter where she is at in her training. We can all learn from her drive. NO matter where you are at in your progress, fitness level, injured or not, you can improve if you put your mind to it. Thanks for showing us how, Tara!
