Episode 283: Sara Vaughn – Mom of four, realtor, 2017 team USA, pursuing olympic dreams

I'll Have Another with Lindsey Hein Podcast

Sara Vaughn is the mom of four, she works full time as a realtor and is running big mileage weeks in hopes to make the Olympic team next year.  To say she is inspiring to me would be an understatement. In 2017, when her third baby was one, she made team USA in the 1500 and competed in London. She has high hopes to do it again and I believe she can. Sara, who is coached by her husband Brent shares with us what her training is looking like now, one year post partum. We get to hear about how they are changing things up a bit and of course I wanted to know if she’ll ever throw down for the marathon. (She went on an 19 mile long run the other day so I had to ask.)  We also talk a lot about family life in this episode. She became a Mom at a very young age, while still attending the University of Colorado, really defying the odds still graduating in just four years. Her kids now range from ages 1-14 so I was super curious about parenting through so many different stages at the same time. One thing I think Sara and I both want to leave you all with is that if you are parent to drop the  guilt and that you can still pursue your own dreams while being a damn good Mom. Enjoy my conversation with Sara!

Episode 19: Sara Vaughn

Chasing Bravery

Hi everyone! Welcome to episode 19 of the Chasing Bravery Podcast. I am your host Kait, and today I am speaking with a very highly requested guest: Sara Vaughn.I have been a fan of Sara’s for a few years now myself, so I knew exactly why she was so heavily requested by listeners. While she may not say so herself- Sara is a very inspiring woman. She is a mother of 3, has a consuming career that she is passionate about, and is running at the World level in Middle Distance Track and Field. While all of this is impressive standing alone, it is not Sara’s full story. Sara had her first child when she was just a Junior in college. Despite many barriers and pushback, she stayed in school and continued to compete at the Division 1 level- all while raising an infant with her then boyfriend- now husband.After school Sara went on to have two more babies, and kept right on running- improving every year on the track aside from those where she was growing humans of course. Sara has now qualified for two Worlds teams , and I believe her when she says she kind of feels like she is just getting started.This episode is a testament to the power of a positive mindset, and a solid grasp on your own self-worth- two things Sara possesses, and brings to everything that she does. I am so thrilled to be able to share this woman with you all- as I believe she is an example of one of my favorite quotes: to be a woman is to be unapologetically resilient despite everything.Before we get to the episode I have two small pieces of housekeeping. The first is the one you saw coming: if you haven’t already left the show a rating and review on itunes, please do. It is the best way for listeners to find the show, and for me to continue to grow this audience. The second is that I want to remind everyone that Sara has little ones at home, so we did have some par for the course interruptions…which I actually think is organic and genuine to Sara’s story and life- however we did do our best to edit here and there.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/chasing-bravery/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chasing-bravery/support
