    Dena: Overcoming trauma, winning 200 mile races, and homeschooling 8 children

    Dena: Overcoming trauma, winning 200 mile races, and homeschooling 8 children

    Dena had to overcome some of the toughest things a child could go through. Instead of letting it get her down, she found running and became one of the most positive and inspirational people I've spoken to. The mom of 8 recently finished 2 x 200mile races that were 11 days apart, coming in 3FOA and 2OA /2F. Oh, and did I mention she home schools all 8 of her children? We no longer have the "I'm too busy," excuse.

Get lost in your running

Just love listening to these podcasts - I save them for my long runs, which encourages me to do more long runs so that I get to listen to a new podcast! The interviews are always interesting and thought provoking, and give me something to concentrate on when my feet are sore from time spent traipsing around the hills. Thankyou!
