Melissa joined MRC via our C25k system with Mum Sue and quickly stood out due to being so enthusiastic about everything! They both started doubling up on the sessions by joining us on Wednesdays at Vale Running club at Long Clawson.
Very quickly both proved they were the right people, had outstanding attitudes with huge community spirit and we were very happy to push them towards becoming Run Leaders.
Despite being new to running Melissa is something of a natural, OK it does help she is also our youngest Run Leader! But a wise head on young shoulders, Melissa works and volunteers in the community in a range of interests, helping people and the local area is a priority.
Recently Melissa has completed the Melton Santa Fun Run, Stilton Stumble 10k and Barrow Boxing Day 6
