    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.
