In 1985, she graduated from Morristown-Beard School in New Jersey. Morristown-Beard School awarded Barr their Distinguished Alumni Award in 2005. In 1992, Barr ran in the Boston Marathon for the first time. Following the race, she gained a greater interest in the sport of marathon running, which led her to register to run in the New York City Marathon in the fall. Soon after registering, Barr received a letter from runner Fred Lebow that encouraged her to collect donations to support cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Lebow, who co-founded the New York City Marathon and served as president of New York Road Runners, was receiving cancer treatment at the medical center at that time. After raising $1,500 for Memorial Sloan-Kettering in the New York City Marathon, Barr continued to collect donations for them in future races. In 1997, Memorial Sloan-Kettering named their Aubrey Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research after Barr; as of 2008, the Aubrey Fund had raised more than $25 million to support childhood cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Barr resides in Duxbury, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, she practices for races by running alongside the Charles River, she runs her races with Fred's Team, the marathon fundraising group for Memorial Sloan-Kettering named after Lebow. During the 2012 New York City Marathon and her teammates paid tribute to Lebow at the statute honoring him in Central Park in New York City. In 2012, Barr gave the keynote address at an event held by CentraState Medical Center in Freehold Township, New Jersey to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.

Heathen City

Heathen City is a comic book series created by Alex Vance in 2008. An adult anthropomorphic title, it featured sexual scenes; the world in which Heathen City takes place is nominally identical to the real world as of 2008, though there are several explicit differences and social. The most substantial difference between the Heathen City universe and ours is the existence of Maranatha City, ostensibly located in Florida, on the fictional Blood Bay Peninsula, which appears to replace the Florida Keys. While the story takes place in existing modern locations and references real-world persons and events, all characters are portrayed as anthropomorphic animals. There has not yet been a diegetic explanation. Furthermore, there seems to be no relation between their species. In a scene set in a bar in Shanghai the character Ruy remarks that there are no Asians present, indicating scent plays a substantial role in recognizing geographic origin. Owen Zelazny, a hustler who has decided to quit his life of prostitution, finds himself unintentionally entangled in a criminal, political conspiracy.

With his new lover Ruy Ortega in tow, Owen seeks out an old friend, Q. I. Malloy, whom he hasn't spoken to in three years. With the threat of pursuers at their heels, led by the sadistic Tony Caulfield, the burden of secrets that each of the characters bear, old flames rekindled, tensions rise as they traverse the globe in a struggle for survival. Action takes place in London, Paris and the Pacific Ocean. In volume 2, due for release in July 2009, four separate stories spanning eighteen years explore pivotal moments in the lives of Owen, Malloy and Tiber Ferrum, who had not been introduced. Owen Zelazny, an American hustler, wolf, 27 years old, on the verge of retiring and starting a new career. Q. I. Malloy, an English Doberman, former burglar and drug dealer, at one point incarcerated and is now of uncertain legal status. Ruy Ortega is Owen's current lover, he is hinted at coming from a wealthy family. Tony Caulfield is the principle antagonist. A sophisticated and wealthy English cougar with strong sadistic and homicidal tendencies, he pursues Owen, deals harshly with anyone who might hold a clue to aid his hunt.

A deck of playing card decks was released in tandem with Volume 1 at Anthrocon 2008, featuring art by various artists, promotional condoms were given away. Heathen City #1 was released on June 26, 2008, at the furry convention Anthrocon, where it was represented by FurPlanet and sold out. Heathen City #2 will be released on July 2 at Anthrocon. Work is underway on the next issues, though no release date nor any other details have so far been released. Alex Vance remains the writer on all issues.

Story Monument was surveyed as part of the Smithsonian's Save Outdoor Sculpture! survey in 1993. The monument is a tribute to the economy of Story; the monument is carved to look like a tree trunk with its limbs cut off. The sculpture is carved with images of a deer, a dogwood tree and vine; the sculpture was built to represent, according to Save Outdoor Sculpture!, "the economic decline of Story in the 1930s, its subsequent rebirth in the late 1970s." The carving of the wagon wheel represents the Studebaker buggy assembly operation, located in Story in the 1920s. It took a number of years for artist William Galloway to complete, he worked on it.
