Des Moines, Iowa
I am a mother to four brilliant boys, one of whom has autism. I also battle Multiple Sclerosis.  I run to stay sane and because it is so much fun. Through the struggle it makes me a better person. I ran my first barefoot mile on June 19th 2009 and haven't looked back! Barefoot or bust!!
