Pittsburgh Running Blogger Spotlight: Susan

Sorry it's been awhile folks, I'm running low on spotlights! This weeks Pittsburgh Running Blogger Spotlight is on Susan from MomSwimBikeRun

Hi my name is Susan and I am a 40 year old Mother of 3. My children (family) really are the main focus and source of enjoyment in my life. I have been married to my husband, George, for 13 years and we agree that raising our children is our most important job. I believe that part of being a good mom is taking care of myself. Let's face it... If mom ain't happy ain't nobody happy.

In order to keep myself happy I have to keep myself fit. I'm a runner, cyclist, triathlete and avid CrossFitter. I have run 16 half marathons and 4 full marathons and dozen of other other races. More recently, I have found a passion for CrossFit despite not being THAT good at it. I'm currently dedicating a lot of time to my CrossFit training.

I am a Pittsburgh girl and love all Pittsburgh sports including the Steelers, the Penguins and even the Pirates. My family and I relocated from Pittsburgh, PA to Austin, TX in 2010 and lived in Austin for exactly 2 years. We loved the city and the opportunities it provided us to stay fit and active. My husband was offered the opportunity to move back to Pittsburgh for his job and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to be close to family. A piece of my heart will ALWAYS be in Texas. The people I met in Texas were some of the best people I've encountered in my life. We've been happily settled back in Pittsburgh since August of 2012. I'm thankful to be close to my family and back with all my great Pittsburgh friends.

I hope you'll follow me on my many adventures and watch me Mom.Swim.Bike.Run.... eh and CrossFit
