A little Bit About Me

I am Susie Carlson. Born in Roswell, New Mexico in 1990. Damn, years passed by very quickly, and i can see that i am over 30 years old now.

When i was young, i was getting bullied at school because i was a bit overweight, so i did what any teenage girl would do: started running.

At first, i started running because I wanted to lose weight, but i quickly fell in love with it because the feeling I got after completing my runs and achieving my goals was definitely something I’ve never experienced before anywhere else.

It’s been more than 15 years, and I’ve been running 3-4 times a week ever since then. I’ve achieved goals, won marathons, went through injuries and learnt a lot along the way. That’s why, I created Suzlyfe together with my husband (Ken) to share my findings and help others reach their goals. Both me and my husband are avid runners, and it’s a big part of our life.

I love connecting with people that read my blog, so if you have any questions, or want to reach me, please use the contact form at the top of the page, because i reply to e-mails very often!

Here are a few goals I’ve achieved!
