Sarah Cummings – Balancing All The Things

Carrie chats with Sarah Cummings, the 2021 JFK 50 Mile Champ! They talk about how missing an early turn in last year’s race added onto the mental pressures of this year’s race, overcoming injuries, the team aspect of ultramarathoning, finding a way to fit in all the training, and so much more.
