Episode 106: Sarah Bishop

 

2017 was a BIG year for Sarah Bishop. She PR’d in nearly every distance and qualified for the Olympic Trials in the Marathon, only six weeks after winning the Marine Corps Marathon. She is the Mother of four daughters (two of whom are twins) and works full time as a construction site contractor as a business development director. She served in the Air Force for three years, where she met her husband, who is currently still serving in the Air Fore as an engineer.

Sarah ran in High School and College (D1 All American 800 meter runner) but she hung it up for quite a few years and didn’t start competitively running again until 2014 after having four kids. She found herself in a slump when her twins were 6 months old and needed to do something for herself, so she took up running again and never looked back. She is a motivated and driven person and this episode will inspire you to not set artificial limits on yourself and dream big. That’s what Sarah did when she decided to break 3 hours in the marathon, only to decide not too long after that that she could also qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials.
