Default Can I run romex below a plywood subfloor above a concrete slab?

I have a concrete slab floor covered with 2x4 framing, and then covered with a plywood subfloor. There is .5 inch rigid foam insulation atop the concrete, and the rest of the cavity is filled with regular pink insulation. Can I run Romex beneath the subfloor, through the framing, stapled along the studs? I want to install a floor outlet for a heater. This is a ground level room; there is nothing beneath the slab.

I wasn't sure if some special type of cable was need or if Romex was ok?

Sorry. Filled in the required fields. I'm not an electrician, was just hoping to get some helpful advice.
