Susan’s passion was working out at CrossFit four times a week. She was an avid runner and successfully completed three Marathons and competed in numerous races over the years. Another activity Susan enjoyed was hiking. Her favorite hikes were in the Rocky Mountains and she was proud to have accomplished several 14,000-foot peaks.
