Sue Stout is a mother of two from Liverpool. In June 2008, Sue's husband Paul was killed in Afghanistan. Shortly afterwards, she received a 'blood letter': a letter soldiers prepare for their families in case of death. In the letter were specific instructions, listing life goals for his family. Paul, a fitness fanatic, set Sue the goal of completing an annual 10k run. Although daunted, she set about the task just one month after her tragic loss. She had no idea at the time that training would help her overcome her immense grief. Three years later - Sue runs 10k's regularly, but astonishingly also competes in triathlons! Furthermore, Sue recently won The Norman Mailer Prize for Creative Non-fiction 2011, after writing a poignant article about training her way through grief. The article is soon to be published in GQ Magazine - which coincidentally fulfils Paul's other request- she should write.
