About The Guest:

Sabrina Stanley is a Professional Ultra Runner who lives in Silverton, CO. She just won her 10th ultra in a row, Diagonal des Fous, a 100-mile race with over 30,000 ft of climbing, making her the first American (male or female) to crack the top 6 in the races 27-year history. Some other noteworthy races: HURT 100 1st female 2019, Hardrock 100 1st female 2018, Western States 3rd female 2017.

Sabrina grew up in a small town in Washington State, with 5-siblings and played a plethora of team sports. Running became a passionate hobby in high school, and when she moved to Colorado as an adult, she was introduced to trail running. Her first attempt at a 100-miles in 2015 left her with her only DNF to date, after she had to drop at mile-87. This lit a fire under her. She decided that she was going to be one of the best trail runners at all costs to her social life and current career. In 2018 she was voted the 8th best American Ultra Runner of the Year and is hoping her 2019 will show a vast improvement.
