Hi, I’m Sarah.

And in 2017, I went from an out-of-shape 41-year-old with a potentially disabling injury to a Mt. Rainier finisher!

What finally worked for me was to take the endurance training principles I’ve practiced for decades as a distance runner and adapt them to mountaineering training.

Using that approach, I was able to summit not only Rainier but also high-altitude summits in Bolivia and Mexico. So I created this page to share my best training tips with you.

Happy training! xx
