Sage Donnelly

Paddling

Sage was born and raised in Carson City, Nevada, and technically still lives there. However, she is away traveling for training and competitions 10 months out of the year. Sage’s primary sports are whitewater canoe and kayak slalom, freestyle and creek kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. She started competing seriously when she was seven. Sage is now 18 and on 5 USA Teams. Sage is a 2020 Olympic hopeful, so most of her time is spent training, but she is also in college working towards a degree in Sports Psychology which keeps her very busy outside of training. Sage also loves to rock climb, hike, longboard, dabble in photography, and do pretty much anything that involves the outdoors.

Favorite Honey Stinger Product:

Gluten Free Salted Carmel Energy Waffle and Organic Energy Chews I have had Celiac Disease since I was 8, and finding products that actually taste good can be really hard. I have been a Type One Diabetic since I was 3 years old, and the chews are perfect for keeping my blood sugars up the 8 hours a day that I am working out.

Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why…then go out and do it.
