Sarah Max is a multi-sport athlete who is willing to try any new adventure, just as long as it’s damn hard. Bonus if it has great views along the way and cold drinks at the finish. In the winter, she competes at the elite level of cross-country skiing, having placed among the top finishers at marathon races in the U.S. and Europe. In the fall, she races cyclocross. The rest of the year she likes to jump in gravel grinders, trail runs and makes her own adventures. A financial journalist, Sarah funds her passions as a contributing editor to Barron’s and as a frequent contributor to Money, Sunset, The New York Times and Worth.
