ABOUT SARA

Sara originally started running because she had too much energy and enjoyed beating the boys in the mile in PE. Her love of the sport grew as the sport grew her into the person she is today. Her first love was the 800m but she has also grown to love the longer distances over time. A fast, middle-distance style track workout is her favorite part of training and probably what she is best known for and you'll probably find her singing and dancing before practice or on the warm up, most likely with AC. In her future, she looks forward to trying some new things on and off the track! She loves her track family and how they have supported her through the years. Cal Coast has been a great way to settle into "adult life" after college and it has been great to continue to run with high school best friend and teammate Emily Taylor!
