Jamie Foshey

My name is Jamie and I’m a runner…… not the fastest runner, but a runner. After starting my own business in 2012, my health was put on the back-burner and my focus became solely focused on surviving entrepreneurship.  My health declined, I gained a significant amount of weight and was just overall unhappy. I new something had to change. Running became my therapy and I enjoy the time being “unplugged” from everything.

Now in early 2017, I have completed 30+ 5Ks, 6 10Ks and 6 Half Marathons in just the last 18 months. I have three four-legged running buddies who keep me committed to my training. My pace isn’t great (yet) but I work on it and I do it for me. I don’t run for anyone else….. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Susie Wagner

How to introduce myself to you… let’s start with… I’m a runner. And then go on to my name is Susie Wagner, and I’m an almost-mid-thirties wife, mom of several 4-legged fur-babies, and professional at a Wisconsin utility company. And I’m a runner. A runner who first started in high school (waaaay back in the day), took a really long break, and now have run three half marathons and working towards my first full marathon! I’m looking forward to sharing my journey to my first 26.2 with you, and hopefully we’ll have some laughs along the way, as I hope to infuse my blog with humor and sarcasm. A great combo if you ask me. Sometimes all you need is a little laughter. And a long run.
