Susan also shares the principles, strategies and tools that successfully guided her through her races and into her present life of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual joy and thriving. To date, Susan has completed 31 races, from 5k to 42k.

THIS IS 70!, WITH SUSAN SOMMERS

She describes herself as strong and fit, with a passion for family, health, fitness, food, and travelling (she was a featured speaker at International Women’s Day in Jaipur, India and co-leads trips to Provence, France). Her new book, Love Your Body…Embrace Your Life! celebrates health, fitness, nutrition, and spirituality.
