A relative newcomer to competitive distance running, Sarah Breevoort looks to focus on the marathon…

Sarah began her athletic career in Marietta, GA where she began running cross- country to stay fit for soccer. She then attended the University of Georgia where she received a dual degree in Cellular Biology and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2008. It was during her tenure at UGA that she discovered triathlons, and became involved with the newly synthesized UGA Tri club during her freshman year. Serving as president of the team, her passion for endurance sport evolved as did her appreciation of the camaraderie and cohesiveness that accompanies a team with shared goals.

After graduating in 2008, Sarah moved to Charlottesville to begin a combined MD/PhD program. Currently, she is studying atherosclerosis as a pharmacology graduate student, and will return to medical school in 2014. Her clinical interests reside in preventative medicine, promoting healthy lifestyles, and endurance sports. She aspires to work with adolescent girls using exercise and wellness training to teach healthy lifestyles.

Sarah ran her PR of 2:55 at the 2011 Boston Marathon. With her recent commitment to the marathon, Sarah has her sights set on qualifying for the Olympic Trials.
