Episode 71 | Sarah Sellers

the morning shakeout podcast

"When I finally got to come back to running, my number one goal was no longer [to] run as fast as I can—my number one goal was, 'I don't want to have to give this up long-term again.' And so that was motivation to have proper nutrition and to realize if I have to be five to ten pounds heavier than what I thought my goal weight was, if that's keeps me healthy, then it's worth it."I’m excited to welcome my third returning guest back to the show this week: Sarah Sellers. Sellers, who finished second at the 2018 Boston Marathon, will race this year's Chicago Marathon on October 13. We recorded this podcast in front of a live audience back back in early July at the Sports Basement in San Francisco. Sellers and I spoke for about 35 minutes before we opened it up to audience Q&A.I really enjoyed this one—we touched a on a lot of topics we didn’t cover the first time around back in Episode 28—including her decision to run Chicago this fall and what she’s changing about her approach going into the race; we also talked about avoiding “the comparison trap” and having the confidence in herself to make adjustments to her training when necessary; we got into the steps she’s taken to stay healthy and keep her body strong, her renewed focus on nutrition and being at a healthy weight versus her fastest weight, how she’s learning to prioritize longterm health over short term success, and a lot more.This episode is brought to you by UCAN.

Episode 28 | Sarah Sellers

the morning shakeout podcast

"My goal isn't to garner more media attention or to shock the world or to even top Boston. My goal is to keep the love of the sport, to stay healthy, and to continue chipping away at times because ultimately I think [that] kind of like Des Linden has shown the world, if you are able to stay healthy and train consistently for a long period of time, that's where you get really good."Stoked to have Sarah Sellers on the podcast this week! The 27-year-old Sellers, who works as a nurse anesthetist in Arizona, was the surprise second-place finisher at April's Boston Marathon, running a personal-best of 2:44:04 in cold, windy, wet conditions. Sellers, who took home $75,000 for her efforts, didn't realize she was the runner-up until after she crossed the finish line.In this conversation, we talked a bit about what's changed for her since Boston while looking ahead to her next big race, the New York City Marathon on November 4.  We also discussed whether or not she's felt an added layer of pressure after her breakthrough performance at Boston, how she's learned to move on from bad races, where her mental toughness comes from, injuries and the changes she's made to her training and lifestyle in order to stay healthy, defining herself as more than just a "runner," balancing training at a high level with working a demanding hospital job, the importance of the support system she surrounds herself with, and a lot more.Music and editing for this episode of the morning shakeout podcast by John Summerford at BaresRecords.comComplete show notes here: https://www.themorningshakeout.com/podcast-episode-28-with-sarah-sellers/Sign up here to get the morning shakeout email newsletter delivered to your inbox every Tuesday morning: www.themorningshakeout.com/subscribe/Support the morning shakeout on Patreon: www.patreon.com/themorningshakeout See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

I'll Have Another with Lindsey Hein Podcast

Today I have the women’s second place finisher of the Boston Marathon on the show! Sarah Sellers grabbed second place in the women’s field on Monday coming in as an unknown force to be reckoned with. She works full time as nurse anesthetist and lives with her husband and their two border collies in Tuscon, Arizona. Sarah ran for Weber State University where her running career was cut short her Jr. year due to injury. She took a good junk of time off competitive running to focus on grad school and recently started picking up the miles when she completed her first marathon last fall in Utah in a time of 2:44, securing her a spot in the elite field at Boston. Boston was her first marathon training cycle where she really focused on speed. Before the weather report for the day came out, she was focused on training to run a 2:37, to grab an Olympic Trials A Standard time. Once the conditions of the wind, rain and cold came about she shifted her focus to racing well, and as you know by now, that served her well. I am so excited to share this conversation with an incredible woman who we are all so happy to get to know! Enjoy this conversation with Sarah Sellers!
