When she decided to see what her body could do when she wasn’t sitting at a desk, Susan Hagstrom started small. She ran for 30 seconds, and walked for 30 seconds. And she worked up from there to riding in the AIDS ride to Los Angeles, twice. And then she swam the Bay from Alcatraz to San Francisco, twice.
