Trail Running Women

Jan 9, 2020

Melissa didn’t start running until she was 42. She was diagnosed with MS in her mid 20’s and her neurologist told her to exercise, but she was too busy and tired. She was on disability for about two years in her late 30’s and early 40’s, but when she started to feel better, she decided to run a marathon. She signed up, ran the race, and didn’t have any MS exacerbations. After that, she realized she felt so good that she had to keep running. Melissa has now run 50 marathon or greater distance races, including 8 x 100 milers.
