Do you have a quote that guides, inspires, or embodies your training/racing/life?
“I can, so I will."
Why do you run?
Every time I lace up it feels like I'm stepping out onto a ledge - what does THAT day have in store? The fact that mere hours can separate the high-highs and low-lows is maddening but thrilling. When it goes well, more speed, more confidence, more walls to break down, more scary goals I never dreamed of tackling. When it doesn't go so well, it fuels a drive to try harder, do more, and be better. It's vicariously productive cycle and I don't see myself getting out anytime soon.
What is your favorite place to run?
Current Sarah says: Back Bay Loop in Newport Beach. Nostalgic Sarah says: Millcreek Park in Youngstown, Ohio - where I first fell in love with running.
Running gear you can't live without?
I've slowly learned to let go of some of the "wires" but still love my data, so I'd say my training log. We spend a lot of time together. Other than the obvious material things - blister-less socks, properly fitted shoes, look/feel good gear (looking at you, OIselle), muscle roller, and lemon-lime Nuun.
When you're not running where would we find you?
Yogurtland (just kidding). ((kind of)) Catching a game, playing pretend beer connoisseur, vacuuming up dog hair or making a mess in the kitchen.
What is your favorite post-race treat?
A good, hoppy beer. Ok, that's pre-race, too. (I live by the "all carbs are good carbs" book).
Complete the sentence: If I was stranded in a hotel room with one movie and one book, they would be…
Something I've seen a million times and something a friend (or my father-in-law) recommended. At the same time.
