Narr quickly established herself as a versatile runner when she arrived at F&M from New Jersey in 1983. Her four-year career in cross country and track was liberally sprinkled with wins, course records, college records, and honors. The highlight of her collegiate running career came her senior year, when the women's cross country team won the NCAA Division III national championship and Narr was the Diplomats' top runner, finishing fourth individually. In cross country, Narr achieved her greatest distinctions.

She was a four-year letterwinner, three-year captain, and two-time team MVP. In most of the team's dual meets she competed in, she finished in either first or second place. In 1983, as a freshman, she placed 19th in the MAC championships, 26th in the NCAA regional qualifier, and 58th in the NCAA Division III nationals. The team qualified for the nationals, where they finished 8th. As a sophomore, Narr placed 11th in the MAC championships, 14th in the NCAA regional qualifier, and 53rd in the NCAA Division III nationals, all improvements from the previous year. The team qualified for the nationals, where they placed fourth. Her junior year was when Narr made her move to the top rank of Division III runners. She won the MAC championship, placed 2nd in the NCAA regional qualifier, and 18th in the NCAA Division III nationals to earn her first All-American recognition.

The team qualified for the nationals again and finished 4th. In her senior year (1985), Narr and her teammates would do it all. Individually, she again won the MAC championship, took the top honor at the NCAA regional, and placed 4th in the NCAA's to earn All-American honors for the second time. The team won the MAC's, NCAA regionals, and the NCAA Division III national championship under Coach Ed Woge. The national championship was the first ever won by an F&M team on the field of competition. Narr was also a valuable member of the track team and a letterwinner each year. She ran primarily distance events but also did relay duty. During her first two years at F&M, Narr was a member of several F&M record-setting relay teams. Her senior year, Narr continued to dominate in the distance events.

She qualified for the NCAA Division III nationals in the 1,500 and 3,000 meter events. She failed to make the finals in the 1,500 but finished 4th in the 3,000 meter final, in F&M record time of 9:48, thus earning All-American honors in track to go along with her two cross country All-American honors. She earned a bachelor's degree in biology in 1986. She received her osteopathic medical degree in 1990. She is a physician at the J.F.K. Memorial Hospital in Stratford, N.J. She and her husband, Frank Narr '86, live in Cherry Hill, N.J.
