Hi there! My name is Sue Cloutier, and I love running. Chances are, if you're reading this, you do too. High five for running, am I right?

Anyway, I am a 36 year old married, mother of two beautiful teenagers, so as you can imagine, my life is pretty interesting. I am also a self-employed dog walker and pet sitter, and a waitress by night. My other interests include knitting, make-up, hiking, swimming, biking, and camping. But mostly, I really like to run.

I started running five years ago, doing some walking and running on the treadmill to lose weight. I next moved on to Couch to 5K, ran my first 5K race, and was convinced I wanted to run a marathon. Wisely, I reconsidered jumping into a full, and started training for a half marathon instead.

That was in 2012, and since, I've completed around 14 half marathons, 4 full marathons, and one 50K ultramarathon. I'm hooked. I also started a running podcast called Runner Girls, where two other women runners, Meagan and Katie, talk with me every week about our running and races, and to other runners about running and races. We have a lot of fun, and sometimes we learn things.

Because I really, really like running, when I am not running, or talking about running, I can occasionally be found here, writing about running.

Thank you for showing an interest in my blog and running pursuits. High five!
