On October 29, 2016, Susie Pline, of Colorado, checked New Hampshire off her list. Susie’s goal is to run a road race in all 50 states. Last year, she took part in our 5th annual Wicked FIT Run in Concord.

Susie loves running in races that support homeless families and children because she always wants to give back to the community where she’s running.

With only five states left to go, Susie is a champion runner even though she only started running at age 50. Fifteen years later, she says, "You’re never too young or old to try something new – you never know; you may grow to love it!" Why not try something new this year and register for our 6th annual Wicked FIT Run!
