LDS Track Star Back From Burnout
Salt Lake Tribune 31May00 S2
By Michael C. Lewis: The Salt Lake Tribune

PROVO, UTAH -- BYU senior Susan Taylor was the subject of a recent article in the Salt Lake Tribune. Taylor, who felt she needed a stronger training program, transferred to Brigham Young University after three seasons with the University of Utah. She competed in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship that began last Friday in Durham, North Carolina. Taylor entered the race with the second-fastest qualifying time for the women's 1500-meter race.

Taylor's running career nearly ended years earlier. Feeling burnt out as a senior at Skyline High School, she quit track and field her senior year after her class 5A championships in 800 and 1600 meters. As a freshman at the U, Taylor asked and was granted permission to run cross-country for the Utes. She did extremely well there, but decided she needed a more established program in order to achieve her personal goals.

Taylor has had a wonderful career at BYU. After a year running for the Cougars, Taylor ran on the national championship cross-country team last fall. She also anchored the distance medley relay team during the indoor track season -- a team which set a new school record.

When asked about her running, Taylor said, "It's been great, better than I ever imagined. I've been able to reach all the goals I wanted to for so long, ever since I was a freshman in college."
