Sarah grew up in Sacramento, California where competitive swimming was her focus and carried her through the collegiate level. After college she casually picked up running and qualified for Boston in her first marathon. Watching her mother compete in triathlons as a child planted the seed. All she needed was a bike. So in January 2012, 8 weeks after her daughter Grace was born, she hopped on her first bike and the journey began.

She started with some local Olympic distance races and ended her first season with with her first 70.3, where she was the overall female champion. From there she was hooked. Gaining experience on the circuit, Sarah continued to claim a number of overall amateur titles in 2013 and 2014. In July of 2014 Sarah decided it was time to turn professional. She competed in Steelhead 70.3 as her first professional race where she finished fourth, and is now looking forward to this next chapter of her journey.

Sure, Sarah wants to achieve her personal goals, but she also has something bigger in mind. Sarah wants to inspire, motivate, and encourage those who follow along to share in the competitive spirit and take pride in personal accomplishment. Whatever that means for you, be inspired and take it on. Find your State of Grace!
