Dakotah Lindwurm and Sara Vaughn are on the podcast today! They both ran PRs at the Chicago Marathon and I loved hearing their recaps on this episode!
Sara ran a 2:23:24 which was a 3 minute PR and placed 10th. Sara debuted the marathon in 2021, running a 2:26:53. Last year at Chicago she was 7th place and ran a 2:26:23. She is the mom of four and is a realtor. In this episode, she talks about taking risks this year in her training ahead of Chicago! Sara comes from a 1500m background. Sara has been on the podcast so many times – episodes 283, 302, 341, 416, 443.
Dakotah smiles the entire marathon and it is so much fun to watch! She truly loves what she gets to do while performing. She was previously on episode 398 after she won the 2022 Grandma’s Marathon in a time of 2:25:01. This year in Chicago she ran a 2:24:40 which was a 35 second PR and 12th place overall.
