Taryn states, “…Being involved in many different sports and activities has helped me to appreciate the fun, fairness and participation and sense of peace and well-being you get by trying your best.  This may lead to an awesome feeling of well-earned accomplishment, or disappointment of losing, which sometimes teaches me more and forces improvement.  I believe if you always try your best at everything you do, you won’t have any regrets and may surprise yourself with how far you can go.”
