Sarah from Run Far Girl

Social media is an amazing tool when used correctly. You can connect with people around the globe doing things that you’re doing too, and if you follow someone long enough you can feel a connection to that person, even if they don’t know you. You may find yourself looking forward to their posts and feeling motivated by what they are doing.  It is through social media that we have connected with Sarah from Run Far Girl.
Interestingly enough Sarah lives right here in good old New Hampshire! Her posts on Instagram and Twitter are easy to relate to as well as motivating. She’s currently pregnant with baby number three and is still out there running when she can! Sarah is a RRCA certified running coach and Level 1 USA Track and Field Coach. She is an active member in a local running club in Rochester, NH called the Rochester Runners. On her blog Sarah shares tips about running form, eating healthy and her love for running and fitness.

Sarah has her infamous “Embrace the Hill” t-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts and pants that you can buy in her Run Far Shop and the message that comes with those three words is incredible:

“Life is filled with “hills:” seemingly insurmountable obstacles that catch us by surprise, lay waste to our resolve, threaten our hope and leave us feeling weak and powerless. That’s what it felt like the night that our son Jack was born. He was born with a congenital birth defect, undetected by ultrasound, that sent us reeling. Ultimately, everything with Jack has been resolved and now all he bears is one (very large) scar on an otherwise healthy and normal body.

In the midst of that difficulty there really was no where to go but up. Up and over. So you lean into it. You embrace it. The difficulty becomes your new normal and you find joy there. And then you get to the top. You breath. And you’re stronger for the journey. That’s what “Embracing the Hill” is all about.”

Sarah goes on to write:

“But these t-shirts aren’t just about a mantra, they are about the children and families that receive care at The Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (the hospital where Jack received and still receives all his care). The profit from each t-shirt sold will be donated directly to CHaD. It’s part of my grand scheme to try and surpass the $7000 I raised last year in connection with the CHaD Half Marathon.  I am incredibly grateful to Jillian Tholen whose beautiful handiwork graces the front and back of the t-shirt, her creativity brought this saying to life.

If you haven’t connected with Sarah over social media, it’s time you do! You can check out her out on Facebook as well as on Instagram and Twitter (links above).  Thank you Sarah for being an inspiration to many!
