Melissa W.
Your legs will move you, your heart will carry you
Melissa caught the running bug early on in life, inspired by a photo of her father crossing the finish line of the 1980 NYC Marathon. While in the early years the miles were few and far between, Melissa completed her first marathon in 2010 and hasn’t stopped since- running has become one of the most valued parts of her life. Melissa has run 5 marathons and has completed countless races ranging from the road mile to a trail ultra relay. She has used running as a connection to a more local viewpoint while traveling abroad and has raced and/or participated in local team runs in over 50 countries around the world. The sport has brought discipline, commitment, health, pride and confidence into her life, and most importantly, FUN and COMMUNITY. Having had a breakthrough NYC Marathon in 2018, Melissa is setting her sights on big goals moving in to 2019 and is excited to be a part of the Mile High community and have the opportunity to inspire and be surrounded by so many inspiring athletes!
