Sarah is a native of New Jersey and a graduate of the University of Michigan. As a marine scientist, she studies large whales, following them to the northernmost town in Alaska or the southernmost Caribbean island. When she is not traveling for work, Sarah lives in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, where you can find her writing, sketching, trying her hand at roller derby, and of course, running. Running has always been a consistent thread throughout Sarah’s life, but soon she will face her greatest running challenge yet: her first marathon! And while Sarah enjoys participating in an occasional road race, her love of running is mostly rooted in the clarity and freedom she experiences on the open road.
