She is a featured columnist for Competitor and Triathlete magazines and her monthly columns resonate with readers of all levels because she writes often of ass chafing, getting lost in the woods, and being hungry all the damn time.

She won The Bee storytelling competition in Salt Lake City, was selected as one of Arizona Foothills magazine's "Women Who Move the Valley", and has finished several Ironman and marathon races.
"Susan Lacke is not only a great writer but also one of the most hilarious people around...And her book? It's all that and more...It's poignant. It's vulnerable. It's real. It's inspiring. It's funny. It's deeply personal and reflective. It's the kind of story that makes you look within...that makes you want to call up your best friend in the middle of the night and say 'thank you from the bottom of my heart'. It's the kind of read that makes you want to write a bucket list and start checking things off of it now... This book is SO F*CKING beautiful." -- Fit Bottomed Girls
"With humor and brutal honesty, Lacke draws you in to a touching story that's refreshingly free of affected 'inspirational crap.' It made me laugh, gave me pause to reflect on my own fallable inner voice, and to rejoice over relationships strengthened through sport. Brilliant!" -- Heather Wurtele, professional triathlete
"I really loved Susan Lacke's book. Her friendship with Carlos made me laugh and cry. More than anything, Life's Too Short to Go So F*cking Slow is a reminder that sport is so much more than fitness: Sports are about friendship and the power to change the course of our lives." -- Rachel Joyce, professional triathlete
"I was captivated and inspired by Susan's story of the profound transformative powers of friendship and sport. To see the progression and improvement in her life reminds us all of the value these human relationships and athletic endeavors have, and of the tremendous capacity for change and growth that lies in each person." -- Ben Hoffman, professional triathlete
"Life's Too Short...cements Lacke's reputation as the storyteller of endurance sports." -- Salt Lake magazine
