Sarah Caven Camp Sweet Life Adventures Champion Runner Mankato Marathon 2017Sarah Caven - Half Marathon
Running Mantra: Turn and burn (especially at the end)
Running Advice: Running to me isn't always about a time. Mother nature can always have a hand in how that plays out. The best advice I can give is to find that inner fire and define your why. Why do you run? Once you can define that, use it when you train. When the training gets tough (and it will), go back to your why and hopefully it will spark that inner fire that can ignite you to finish the training run, that race, that cross-training day, etc.
