Heather Durocher welcomes Cassy Stone, a marathoner and mom of three, to the show to talk about her Michigan running story. This Traverse City runner, whom Heather got to know through the creation of MRG, grew up in Marquette in the U.P. and came to the sport later in life. Part of her journey is living with Multiple Sclerosis, or MS. Managing her chronic disease comes with immense challenges, but Cassy doesn’t allow it to prevent her from living boldly and going after her goals. She’s determined to live life out loud — and she’s doing just that while modeling a healthy, happy lifestyle for her three school-age children. Ultimately, she’s an inspiration to her many friends, and really anyone she meets.
