In the Fast Lane

SL mag editor writes of competition, pain and friendship.

Susan Lacke is a Utah college instructor and writer (her work appears regularly in Salt Lake magazine). But that’s just to fund her passion as a triathlete. In Life’s Too Short to Go So F*cking Slow: Lessons from an Epic Friendship That Went the Distance, Lacke chronicles a 10-year friendship with Carlos Nunez, a fierce triathlete who transformed her from an overweight, pack-a-day smoker into an endurance-race competitor. In his own race against cancer, Carlos, a relentless competitor, crossed the ultimate finish line with courage, grace and love. The book cements Lacke’s reputation as the storyteller of endurance sports. VeloPress, due in book stores or on Amazon in late October.
