Susan Beach running in England's Marathon

April 18, 2012


The opportunity of a life time was presented to local marathon runner Susan Beach when an opening became available for her to participate in the London Marathon being held on April 22.  Beach left for London last Sunday to prepare for the 42 K race (26 mile).

The 49 year old athlete is a member of the local marathon running club Feet on Fire and has been running for several years.

"I'm so excited for this opportunity" said Beach before her departure "my goal is to finish in 4 hrs, 23 min, it's a challenge mentally as well as physically"

The London Marathon is one of the top 5 marathons in the World.  The other 4 top marathons include Berlin, New York City, Chicago and Boston.  Beach plans to run in the upcoming Chicago Marathon later this year.
