Can you imagine cycling 300 miles? As in THREE HUNDRED? As in pretty much the distance between D.C. and New York City! As in Sarah Stanely is INSANE! In a good way of course. ;)
If you don’t know Sarah she blogs at SarahStaneyInspired.com and is a cyclist, runner and fitness enthusiast. She’s making this 300 mile Celebration Ride to encourage children to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits.
I’ve followed Sarah on and off for awhile and have always been awed be her accomplishments. She not only runs marathons routinely but ULTRA Marathons. Those are 50 and 100 miles races. I was shocked that I was able to get my body to cover 26 miles. I can’t imagine how Sarah does it. It’s amazing what the human body is capable of doing when someone puts their mind to it.
I got a chance to meet up with Sarah 80 miles into her ride in White Marsh MD. Here we are this morning just before she headed back on the road….
She was super nice and we chatted about running and events. Speaking of, in the middle of the 300 miles ride she’ll be running the Rock N’ Roll half in Philly and she’ll be speaking at the Expo on Sunday. If you’re running the half or live in NY and want to see her finish. Let me know, I’m getting more details from her sponsor Nutrilite. In the mean time here is her schedule…
