Elite Marathoner Sara Hall on Loving the Work & Grind
Fueling The Pursuit
“For me, it's trying to be really present with what I'm doing at the time and not bringing the other things into what I'm doing at the moment. So, if I'm with my kids, I'm not also doing core work and multitasking.” - Sara HallHey, what's up everybody, it's Jon here. Thanks for tuning into Fueling the Pursuit presented by UCAN. Today's guest is Sara Hall, the fastest active women’s marathoner in the US today.Sara has been competing at a high level in running since her high school days back in the late 90’s. Today, Sara may be 37 years old, but she has no interest in slowing down anytime soon. For as long as she can, she’s set her sights on realizing her potential before the window of opportunity to do so closes. During our conversation with Sara, it becomes clear that being present is one of the keys to her longevity and recent successes in the marathon. Even though she’s a mother of four beautiful daughters, she shares why having less time helps her get the most out of every activity on her daily schedule. I truly believe our conversation with Sara will inspire you to enjoy the journey and all of the challenges it will bring.Show Notes(1:12) Home base for the family…(2:51) Olympic track trials, a drive to compete, and a love of pain…(7:26) The transition from high school to college, and adapting to a different level of competition…(10:47) “So to all of a sudden feel like I was missing the mark all the time was really difficult.
