Recorded May 1, 2018
Sarah is a nurse anesthetist and the runner-up finisher at the 2018 Boston Marathon. Sarah is a Utah native and competed for Weber State University where she holds the Big Sky Conference record in the 10,000 meters (32:51). She ended her collegiate career early due to a navicular stress fracture. Sarah lives and trains in Tucson, Arizona with her husband, Blake, and border collies, Indy and Basin. She loves mountain biking, hiking, scuba diving, and wildlife watching. She also enjoys cooking and experimenting in the kitchen to, as her husband says, “find ways to making healthy food taste good.” She is very passionate about family and rooting for the success of her 6 siblings (1 sister and 5 brothers). She has a close relationship with her parents, who instilled a passion for running early as they would take her for runs before school on the trails in Ogden, Utah. Sarah’s husband is an orthopedic surgery resident at the University of Arizona.
