About this episode

This episode is with Bermuda-based ultra runner and coach Sara Hole. Despite being a newer runner, Sara recently finished her first ultra marathon, calling herself a “shot shooter” and crediting her coach Megan Roche and Team SWAP. While running is a relatively new passion, Sara recalls being artistic and creative for as long as she can remember, describing herself as a content creator, thoughtful, caring and conscientious person.

In this episode we talk about:

  • from unathletic to ultra runner in 2 years: catching the running bug
  • how running has benefited Sara’s self-confidence and whole life
  • going all in on coaching: advice for beginner runners
  • reframing ADHD as a superpower
  • team SWAP: coaching, community, cheerleading
