PHOENIX -- Actress and athlete Katy Sullivan is like very few others in the world. She's a runner even though she was born without legs. She also swims, and she did gymnastics when she was young.

Sullivan, whom you might know from the TV show "My Name Is Earl," is in town this weekend to compete in the Desert Challenge Games, which is May 6-8 at Red Mountain High School in Mesa. She's also singing the National Anthem.

Sullivan and her husband -- they met while they were both undergoing physical therapy -- stopped by the 3TV studio to chat with Tara Hitchcock.
