Running is what drives me. I crave it. I’ve followed some paths in life that have led me away from my passion, but when I finally returned to what always made me happy, I appreciated it so much more. Sabrina is a professional mountain Ultra-Runner and RRCA Certified Coach. Growing up in Washington State Sabrina’s parents fostered an unbridled competitive spirit in both her and her five siblings. Sabrina eventually found a love of running which morphed into a passion for trail running. After being forced to drop at mile 87 of the 2015 Leadville Trail 100 her competitive nature kicked in. She vowed to never drop a race again and become one of the best ultra-runners in the world. In 2016 she returned to Leadville with a vengeance and finished 4th. Since then, Sabrina has won some of the most difficult 100 milers, in 2018 she won the Hardrock 100, in 2019 she won HURT 100. In July of 2021 Sabrina won the Hardrock 100 again and shaved over 3 hours off her 2018 time. Ultrarunner magazine named Sabrina as 8th best American female in 2018 and in 2019 she was ranked 5th. Currently she has finished first female in the last 11 ultras she competed in.
Absolutely loved this conversation with Sabrina. She is one of the most confident, focused, driven runners we have talked to. There is so much more to Sabrina. On this episode she tells us about the things and people that helped shape her into the athlete she has become. We dive into her one and only DNF and how significant that one event became to her running future. We talk about goals and success and everything that comes along with it. We are big fans of Sabrina and think you will be too!
