Today I’m running a few easy miles with a woman that is able to handling multiple things at once.
A runner for many years, Sarah Clancy has run numerous races of all distances.
After having her first child, Sarah decided to start her own business as a designer.
A few years and another baby later, and things are really starting to take off at Sarah Marie Design Studio!
Big Apple Running
As a 20 year old living in New York City, running quickly became Sarah’s favorite pastime.
Sarah has many fond memories from her days running in the city, in large part because of the fact that no matter where you turn, you will always find a running path.
One of Sarah’s favorite races is the New York City Marathon.
Sarah has learned a few tips and tricks to run that race well, and enjoy it at the same time:
- Map it out and know where your turns are. A lot of time is wasted if you’re trying to run on the outside of your corners.
- Know what you’re getting into. When you understand the ups and downs of your race you will enjoy it for what it is.
- Coordinating with friends to give you food/water during the race.
After doctor’s orders to stop running due to her pregnancy, Sarah was looking for something to fill that void of time. She began to draw again and design clothes.
People started to notice her work, and were asking where they could get her products.
Sarah started selling a few shirts here and a few shirts there until things started to really take off.
A Full Plate
With all of the things in Sarah’s life that need her attention how does she manage them all?
Sarah has found that the best thing to do is not to look at balancing day by day but rather week by week or month by month.
It’s hard to spread your attention evenly to so many different areas each day.
Kind of like training for a race…
