In this episode of the Art and Science of Running podcast, we speak with Sara Hall @sarahall3 shortly after she set a new Half Marathon world record on the treadmill and just before she came from behind to finish second at the London Marathon.

Sara has been one of the top American distance runners for decades. However, rather than review a lifetime of accolades and accomplishments, we dive into what makes Sara tick. Jacob @jacobpuzey and Sara talk about her motivations, her family, and her goals as a runner, global citizen, mother and a partner.

Additionally, we discuss the pros and cons of having her partner (American Record holder, Ryan Hall) as her coach and the strains and gains that can place on the relationship or the training dynamic. How did Sara and Ryan decided to adopt and raise three children in the prime of their athletic careers? How they have learned to juggle the various responsibilities of parenthood and professional running?

We discuss all of this and more in the latest episode of the Art and Science of Running Podcast.

We really enjoyed learning from Sara and are confident that you’ll also learn from the insights that she shares.

Peak Run Performance Virtual Race Series

Like you, our lives have been impacted by the uncertainty in the world. While we appreciate some of the lessons that we have learned by slowing the pace of life down a bit, we also recognize the value of routine and consistency. We believe in setting goals and working toward them.

Given that so many in-person races have already been cancelled or postponed in 2021, we’ve created a virtual race series for the athletes we coach at Peak Run Performance to put some dates and distances on their calendars to work and train towards throughout the year.

The collective momentum of a community working toward a common goal can be empowering and motivating. It can also provide a greater sense of accountability.

This race series was designed for the athletes we currently coach at Peak Run Performance @teampeakrun, but figure that we might as well invite others to join in on the fun.

If you are looking for a bit more certainty in these uncertain times, please visit and sign up for the newsletter. We’ll be sending out more information about the Peak Run Performance Virtual Race Series in the coming weeks.
