All three babies were born prematurely and faced life-threatening conditions, as did she. Despite that, Natalie has kept running, including five marathons and training for her sixth in September. Now she wants other survivors to know that preeclampsia doesn't have to keep you down. To help spread that message, Natalie is working to represent ALL preeclampsia survivors on the cover of Runner's World magazine, a publication devoted to runners around the country. It will be the first time an everyday runner will be featured on the cover.
Natalie needs your help! Supporters can vote once a day by visiting her cover contest page and voting via your Facebook or Twitter login.
