Fit Over 40: Life Goal Achieved, Despite Major Injury

member spotlight Oct 25, 2023

Resilient is the perfect word to describe BUFFnation member Taryn Williams. The 43-year-old crushed her first-ever half-marathon in Toronto this October, ranking in the top 35% of her age category.

Her performance is impressive, yes, but what’s even more impressive, is her recovery from a major foot injury in the spring, that had her in a walking cast with no weight-bearing activity for over eight weeks. 

Despite this setback, Taryn adjusted her workouts, continued resistance training, and focused on her nutrition and mindset. Even her Disney vacation on the March break still went ahead despite this major injury. She shifted her perspective, made a decision to make it an incredible experience, and rented a scooter, so she could tour the park with her husband Sy, and daughters Olivia and Isla. The family had a wonderful time.

As soon as she got the go-ahead from her doctor that her foot was healed, she started training for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon - an...
