Sport/discipline:  Triathlon, ITU and Olympic Distance Non-Draft 

About Sarah: She competed in her first triathlon in St. Louis, MO in June 2003 upon college graduation and became a professional triathlete less than a year later, in May 2004.

Sarah grew up in St. Louis, Mo., and began swimming at a very young age. She swam on the Parkway Swim Club for nine years and ran cross country and track in high school. Sarah was a Missouri high school state champion in cross country and swimming, while attending Parkway South High School.

While in college, Sarah competed in cross country and track at the University of Tulsa. She has a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics. 

Sarah enjoys spending her free time with family and friends, many of whom live in Missouri and Minnesota. She enjoys watching movies and reading books, especially while traveling.  Sarah and Nate have five nieces and two nephews all five and under and love to spend time with them.

Hometown: St. Louis, Mo.

Current residence: Clermont, Fla.

Zipp products used: I train on Zipp 101 and 303 clinchers; I race ITU and Olympic Distance Non-Draft such as the Race to the Toyota Cup and the 5150 series. For the ITU races I use 303 Carbon Clinchers and 404 Tubulars. For my non-draft races, I use a Sub-9 disc and either a 404 or 808 front.

Favorite Zipp product and why: My favorite Zipp product would be the Zed Tech 404 Firecrest tubulars. These are the most versatile wheel set there is. I can do both TT and ITU races on these wheels. If you are looking for one set of wheels to get the job done, look no further than the 404 Firecrest!

Do you train with a SRAM-Quarq power meter? I love my Quarq Cinco power meter it allows me to track my fitness from day to day and year to year. It really quantifies the work I do on the bike and helps me become a better athlete.

You’re stranded on a desert island and you have to choose one of each of the following:

One album? Lee Coulter Mister Positivity
One candy? Heath Candy Bars, or
One vice? Mint chocolate chip ice cream; who needs water!!!!!!
