Run, girl, run

NORTH LIBERTY– It’s clear 18-year-old Rae Heim doesn’t do anything half way.
She went from entering her first road race at the age of 15 to running across the entire country just three years later.
Her goal evolved from a personal self-challenge to raising $5,000 for a national charity.
She committed to it without a lot of intense training, without much assistance and entirely without fear. She is accomplishing it with persistent determination, graciousness to all who want a piece of her time, and a tireless smile on her face.
And she is doing it all barefoot.
