Susan Werner

Susan is from Long Island, NY. She found running in a slightly different way. After her mothers Breast Cancer diagnosis she decided to live a healthier life and hit the gym. As her 30th birthday approached she realized her original goal to see all 50 states by 30 would not happen. She needed a new goal; to run a half marathon. Four days before her 30th birthday she did it and has never looked back. Since then Susan has been doing between 15 and 25 half marathons a year. She has completed over 40 Half Marathons and plans to run one in every state. Her Half Marathon PR is a 2:27:19.

Susan decided to use her running to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. To date she has raised over $7,000 for 4 different Charities including The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and St Jude’s. In 2013 Susan was Honored by the Harford Marathon Foundation as one of there Elite Inspiration Team Members. They honor Ten runners every year who are making a difference through running in there communities. Susan was also interviewed by Pace Per Mile at the 2014 Wineglass Marathon.

 

Susan has no plans of stopping any time soon. Susan’s motto if you can’t run fast, run festive! She hopes to see you at a race soon. If you see her, say hi!
