I could not live without… mountains and hilly terrain
My favorite place in the world is… Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom
My dream vacation spot is… the American West
When traveling, the thing I miss the most is… my home community
My favorite meal is… anything with fresh blueberries
I never leave my house without… a water bottle
If I were not an athlete, I would be… a field scientist of some sort. And I still plan to be one.
For the 2011 season, I expect to be… competitive on the international race circuit.
Susan joined the US Biathlon Development Team in June 2008 and lives and trains at the US Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY under coach James Upham. She qualified for the 2009 IBU Cup Team.
In her own words:
"One of my favorite parts of training is that we get to hike, bike, canoe, and run in addition to just rollerskiing and shooting."
