Description
Sara Hall became the 6th fastest female American marathoner of all time when she ran 2:22:16 at the Berlin Marathon in September 2019, lowering her best time over the distance by four minutes. Sara has competed at the elite level of distance running for 15+ years, transitioning from the middle distances on the track to the road in 2014-2015 with coaching assistance of her husband and past elite distance runner Ryan Hall. Since the move to the half marathon and marathon Sara has experienced remarkable progress.  In this conversation with Sara Hall we discuss her plan to race 3 marathons in 5 months between September 2019 and February 2020 which included the USA Olympic Trials, how and why she prepared differently for these marathons, what it's like being coached by her husband Ryan Hall, her reflection on the USA Olympic Trials and more.
