About Suzy Favor Hamilton

Suzy Favor Hamilton Biography

Suzy held the 1500-meter US junior record and won three junior national championships while still in high school. She was inducted into the US National High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2010 after Scholastic Sports Magazine named her one of the top 100 high school athletes of the 20th century. Suzy earned nine NCAA Championships and 32 Big-Ten Championships at the University of Wisconsin. She received the Honda Cup and Babe Zaharias Awards as the nation's top female collegiate athlete. The Big-Ten Network ranked her the most outstanding female athlete in conference history. Suzy competed professionally and achieved seven USA National championships, two American Records, three Olympic appearances, five sub-four minutes 1500 meter runs, and at the time, the second-fastest American woman in history with a speed of 3:57.40, only 0.02 seconds behind leader Mary Decker Slaney. Suzy won the USA Track & Field's Female Distance Runner of the Year in 2000 as the fastest woman in the world. During her running career, Suzy was featured in national advertisements for brands including Nike, Reebok, Oakley, Clairol, and Proctor & Gamble. She had significant coverage in magazines, including Vogue, Cosmopolitan, People, Rolling Stone, Harper's Bazaar, and Sports Illustrated, and she made three covers of Runner's World. Suzy went on to have what appeared to be a successful real estate profession and a post-running existence. She seemed to have it all. But in reality, she was going through a nightmare. Suzy's sense of inadequacy on several levels and her failing marriage were catalysts for her further descent into darkness and final misdiagnosis of depression. She became high after taking the prescribed medication, far too high, and she quickly attempted to make up for all she had missed out on. She improved to the point that, a short time later, she was among the best escorts in the globe and Las Vegas. Only after being outed to the public and receiving a bipolar disorder diagnosis did she start the long journey of healing. Years later, she has emerged from the shadows and is telling her tale about her problems with life both while running and afterward as well as her experiences with bipolar disease. She hopes that sharing, which she finds therapeutic and freeing, may encourage others to do the same. On September 15, 2015, Dey Street Books, a Harper Collins publisher, published "Fast Girl - A Life Spent Running From Madness," which quickly shot to the top of the New York Times bestseller list.
