Susan Gimbel

Susan Gimbel of Orange, California, passed away last evening (May 19) after a battle with ovarian cancer. Susan was an ultrarunning legend and special person. Ultrarunning Magazine will run a piece in her memory. Susan won many ultras in the 80's and early 90's and is still
the only woman to have successfully completed the Double Double Grand Canyon crossing in just under 30 hours, the running accomplishment of
which she was most proud. Susan stands as a heroine to many.
