Tara Dower is a thru-hiker turned ultra runner who has proven to be a dominant competitor since she came on the scene just over 18 months ago. With podiums in 11 of her 12 races to date, including a 2nd place finish at the mega-competitive Run Rabbit Run 100, 2023 is looking to be a promising year. Huge shoutout to our friend and listener Jay Pounds for putting Tara on our radar! Tara was kind enough to sit down with us and talk FKT's, her performances at Umstead 100 and Run Rabbit 100, dealing with anxiety on the trail, and more. Take us for your long run to catch all the value that Tara dropped and like, comment, and let us know what you thought. Enjoy the episode, and be sure to follow Tara on Instagram and her YouTube channel @taratreks for all kinds of great thru-hiking and ultra related content.
