UFAI’s PT Suzanne Hawson has a “Run to Remember”

Hawson2-smallUFAI’s own, Suzanne Hawson, participated in the First Annual Los Angeles Run to Remember Half Marathon this past Sunday. The event began in Boston in 2005 as a way to recognize law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.  After years of sending LAPD teams to run in the Boston race, a group of L.A. officers partnered with the Boston Police Runners Club to establish “Run to Remember – Los Angeles.” The west coast event honors fallen law enforcement officers as well as firefighters and other first responders.

Our nation’s first responders put their lives on the line everyday in the service and protection of others, so it’s only fitting that we take the opportunity to celebrate them at an event such as Run to Remember.

More than 5,000 runners participated, including teams of law enforcement officers from agencies throughout the U.S. Beginning on The Grove Drive, the race took Suzanne through historic Hollywood, including a one-of-a-kind detour into Paramount Studio’s backlot.

“There are many races I can choose from out there, but this one in particular, that supports our police officers and first responders, is quite meaningful to me,” says Suzanne.  “I have many friends and patients who are in law enforcement and first responders so it was an honor to support this race.”

Suzanne has a history of competing in long distance triathlons, but has taken some time off from Ironman training to focus on strength training, including CrossFit. She successfully beat her half marathon personal record by 12 minutes this weekend and will be participating in the CrossFit Open this spring.
