Wendy Garrett lives by one mantra: “Life is tough, but I am tougher.”
And if anyone knows how to be tough, it’s Garrett.
Garrett practiced endurance at a young age when she started taking gymnastics at 6 years old.
When she turned 23, she gained a passion for running. “Running gave me a goal,” said Garrett, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “I was used to having a goal in gymnastics and having an outlet. It was my therapy.”
