Sara Bowman (Farmington, Michigan)


Farmington, MI, where I’m the Mayor Pro Tem on City Council

This year marks the 10th anniversary of my first half marathon, which was the Martian! Since then I’ve gone on to run about 30 half marathons, 17 marathons, and three 50K trail races. This year I’m embarking on my first 50 Miler at Run Woodstock. On non-run days, my hubby and I CrossFit together and attend our 16-year old son’s cross country, track and swim meets. 

Most memorable run or race:
Northface Challenge 50K at Bear Mountain – hardest thing I’ve ever done. Loved every minute.

Favorite post-run beverage:
A nice, cold beer.

The song, mantra, or quote that you turn to when the run gets tough:
The only run you’ll regret is the one you didn’t take.
