Sarah grew up in Minnesota but has spent most of her time since in the West. Sarah is an avid runner, logging 50-75 miles in a typical week of mountain trail running, and often competes in half-, full- and ultra-marathon races. She also spends much of her free time climbing, skiing, and exploring the outdoors. In her day-job, Sarah is a wildlife biologist, and you'll notice that as she brings her background and training as a professional scientist to the detailed analysis in her reviews.
