North Liberty woman returns safely from site of American tragedy

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty chiropractor and runner Dr. Sheri Giese, DC, has already made up her mind.

It’s a traditional event with an international luster that was blackened this year in a matter of seconds by two terrorist-planted bombs that killed three people and left more than 200 injured.
“People have asked me if I’ll run next year,” she said. “Yeah, I’m running next year.”
