A New Marathon Mommy

Hi! I recently joined the Marathon Mommies so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Melissa and I'm the stay-at-home mom of a one-year-old little boy. I have been reading this blog and felt so inspired by all of your running experiences that I wanted to join the group! I started running when I was in college and love it for the 'me' time and the chance it gives me to push myself physically and mentally. I have ran a marathon and a couple half marathons, but would like to add many more to my list! One interesting thing about me is I like to run without music. I guess some runners might think that's crazy...but I love letting my thoughts accompany my runs instead.

I'm so excited to join all of the amazing women on this blog!

Welcome! If I am not running more than 3-4 miles I go without music as well. I love the free brain time to think!
