Meet Susanna Sullivan, defending champ and course record holder

Susanna and Mike

Susanna Sullivan will be back next week to defend her title of women's champion and course-record holder at the Alexandria Turkey Trot.

Sullivan describes the annual Thanksgiving Day race as "one of her favorites of the year" and the 25-year old from Falls Church appears to be ready to have her best performance yet as this past weekend, she bettered her 8k (4.97 miles) personal best from 26:43 to 25:57.

Susanna trains with the Capital Area Runners under the direction of George Buckheit, and is wrapping up a year of racing that brought new personal bests from the mile (4:44) to the marathon (2:35).

After the Alexandria Turkey Trot, she will begin preparation for the 2016 Olympic Team Trials for the marathon, to be held in Los Angeles in February.
