Kristen Susienka

Distance runner, cat mom, mentor

Living the life of book editor by day, runner by evening, Kristen has been part of the Fleet Feet community since joining a Learn to Run group in June 2015. She’s cultivated a love of the sport ever since crossing her first 5K finish line. Since then, she has become an avid distance runner, completing marathons and half marathons across the United States and Canada. She thrives in the community Fleet Feet and other run groups provide.

Kristen is also an active mentor in Fleet Feet’s run programs. She is an advocate for all runners, regardless of ability or speed, and strives to help others meet their fitness goals.

She lives in Buffalo, New York, with her boyfriend and run partner, Tyler, and their three rambunctious cats.
