Hi! *waves* My name is Suzanne Jakes, and I am an emerging elite distance runner with big dreams of competing on the world stage. I live in San Diego, CA with my husband, Tad, and beautiful 4 month old daughter, Daisy.
I’m here to share with you all of the trials and tribulations of my comeback to elite racing after pregnancy and my new journey into motherhood.
During my pregnancy, I suffered from severe Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD), also known as Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP), that significantly impaired my ability to run and even walk towards the end of my pregnancy. Four months after giving birth, it still plagues me, but I am more eager than ever to get back to running and racing.
I’m looking forward to sharing this road to recovery, getting back in shape, my journey as a running momma, and everything in between!
