Ali on the Run Show Episode 91: What's New With You Week with Sarah Sellers

Date: August 7, 2018 at 7:57 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 8

I’m still not sure which was crazier: me finishing second, or the response to me finishing second.” — Sarah Sellers

After the 2018 Boston Marathon, everyone wanted to meet second place finisher Sarah Sellers. She joined the Ali on the Run Show just two days after her triumphant finish in Boston — and that episode went on to become the most-downloaded episode of the show ever. Today, Sarah is still a nurse anesthetist living in Arizona, but her life looks a little different post-Boston. She’s no longer and unknown, unsponsored runner — she signed with Altra soon after Boston — and she’s $75,000 richer thanks to the Boston Marathon. On this episode, she looks back at that day in Boston and how her life has changed since, and shares her big racing plans for the fall.
