A chat with Sara Hall before her USA Cross-Country race this weekend.
Being half of a power couple is no easy task. But Asics-sponsored runner Sara Hall makes her eight-year marriage to Olympic marathoner Ryan Hall look as effortless as her speedy stride. Long-known for her winning ways in cross country and steeplechase, Hall stepped up her race distance last fall, winning her very first half marathon, the Healdsburg Wine Country Half, in 1:14:33. Hall also handles operations for the Hall Steps Foundation, a nonprofit she and Ryan co-founded to fund mentoring programs for at-risk youth and fight poverty through better health.
