Sara Parrish Makes Physical Activity a Priority in Every Area of Her Life

On today’s show, I’m joining Sara Parrish for a few easy miles.

In addition to being a runner, Sara is also a triathlete, a competitive mountain biker, a hockey player, and personal trainer so obviously being physically active is very important to her in all areas of her life.

Her varied interests in the health and fitness world provided plenty of things to talk about during our run today. In addition to talking about the marathon that she’s training for, we also talked about her experience representing Team USA in the world triathlon championships, her worst sports related injury, and a local fitness challenge she is holding at her gym in Missouri.

Here are some of the highlights of our conversation.

  • How her competitive nature drives her in races
  • Her experience as a member of Team USA in the world triathlon championships
  • Comparing mountain biking and trail running
  • Why the marathon at the end of an ironman was “easy” compared to her first stand alone marathon
  • Great exercises for runners to add to their routine
  • The importance of having a strong core and good flexibility
  • The 417 Challenge
