Suzy has run countless races at the 5k to the marathon distance, and her love of running led her to the world of multi-sport fifteen years ago after watching one of her best friends compete in the Naperville Women’s Triathlon. Suzy enjoys racing a variety of sprint, Olympic, Ironman 70.3, and Ironman 140.6 distance courses annually. Suzy is a 3X Ironman Wisconsin finisher.
“Coach Suzy was an integral part of my 2016 Ironman 70.3 training. In five short weeks, Coach Suzy organized my training, answered my questions, pushed me harder and never doubted that I could finish my race. I appreciated that she researched the race course I was about to train on and gave me tailored advice so I could be fully prepared on race day. I would highly recommend Coach Suzy as a coach and I look forward to working with her again next season!” – Kirsten J.
“Suzy introduced me to running and helped me reach my personal goal of running a 5K. The beginners run class she led provided a welcoming and friendly environment to learn the basics, get started running and be inspired by others. Suzy’s enthusiasm and encouragement kept me going and enabled me to complete the course despite the rain, snow and freezing cold. Thanks to Suzy, I now run regularly and feel the benefits of a healthier and more balanced lifestyle, and I’m already thinking about my next challenge.” More testimonials for Coach Suzy
