  • The Running Mom

    Most mother's of four have little energy to crawl into bed after a typical day of being Mom. Kelly Knight on the other hand gets her four kids – ranging in age from 8 to 18 – off to school and her day has just begun.

    Knight is an Iowa Western Community College sophomore studying to be a paramedic. Oh, and she happens to be ranked nationally in the 3,000-meters for the Reiver track team.

    To say Knight, 37, took an unlikely path to college long distance runner is putting it mildly.
