Sarah began running in 2011 as a way to get back into shape after graduating college. As a 3rd generation marathon runner, Sarah grew up attending Grandma’s Marathon each year to cheer on her father and grandfather. After reaping the benefits from running and realizing it was a lot of fun, Sarah joined the MDRA Spring Marathon class in 2012 in order to help her tackle her first marathon (of course it was Grandma’s). Since then, she has had the pleasure of acting as team leader for the group a handful of times, as well as twice serving as a coach for the fall marathon training program. Since 2012, she has completed 32 marathons, spanning 19 states and two international marathons along with a few fellow MDRA members. Sarah works in merchandising at a prominent local retailer, and enjoys traveling as much as possible.
