MudGear shares another profile of an OCR athlete who is making a statement: Tara Skinner.
I used to weigh 271 pounds and have kept the weight off for ten years now. OCR helps me keep it off because it gives me a reason to go to the gym or go on hikes now. Its not just to keep looking a certain way, it’s to be able to perform well at these races. One of the reasons I enjoy racing alone is because it gives me time to truly listen to my body and see what its telling me it needs me to work on.
