Hi, I’m Sarah. I’m a sports dietitian, marathon runner and mom of two.  I work with runners to improve performance with an optimized nutrition plan. Here, you’ll find evidenced based resources for your training as well as the top product recommendations.

More About Me

As a former college athlete, I’m aware of how much nutrition can impact your sport. I’ve run 4 marathons and countless half marathons, and helped fuel hundreds of runners for their endurance events.


Personally, I’m a mom to two girls in the Washington DC area. When I’m not running, you can find me in the kitchen making all sorts of snacks, hiking and enjoying the outdoors, or road tripping to a favorite destination.


You can find several of my favorite recipes at www.bucketlisttummy.com.

MY NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY

Sarah_-Bucket-List-Tummy

I’m not an extreme dietitian

New people and clients are still shocked when they realize I don’t tell them not to eat foods. I don’t tell them that all they can eat moving forward is fruits, veggies and protein. And I definitely don’t tell them to let external numbers guide their desire for eating or need for nourishment. As a matter of fact, I don’t like to use a lot of “don’ts” in sessions.

Instead, we focus on what you can do, things you can eat and include, and why it’s important to prioritize yourself. We talk a lot about nourishing your body in many different ways.
