In honor of marathon weekend, I am so elated to introduce all of you to one of my wonderful friends; who happens to also be running the half-marathon (for ARL) as we speak!  Her name is Susie Katilius and if you saw my posts back in February, she is the reason we were out in California as she was participating in several races at DisneyLand. When I sat down to finish writing this post, it was difficult for me to sum Susie up in a few words or sentences. This girl is multi-talented and has one of the best hearts of anyone I know.
