About Melissa

I am a runner. But I wasn’t always.

You see, I wasn’t much of an athlete in my teens. I dabbled with running for weightless in high school, but nothing serious. 

Then I joined the Navy ROTC program, and I ran way more than I thought a college student should!! So I became someone who runs. 

After college, a friend suggested running a half marathon. So I did. I ran my first race. I didn’t train for it. And I ended up in the medical tent with heat cramps, fever, wacky blood pressure. 

But the rush of a race day got me. And I had a pretty good time for not training! 

So I trained and ran more half marathons. I even trained and ran the Marine Corps Marathon in 2008. Six months of training with good friends. But do you know what I didn’t do much of then? Strength train. And I had a post race injury that took about 3 months to fully recover from. That was not what the downloaded plan from the internet said would happen. 

Yet, I kept running. Then in 2012, I ran 3 half marathons in 7 months. I’d love to say weight loss wasn’t my goal, but I can tell you hat weight GAIN wasn’t my goal.  It was stressful period of time in career, putting in long work days, and then 5+ hrs a week of running and I was getting bigger. And I still wasn’t strength training.

This propelled me into kettlebell training. I found such satisfaction moving up a ‘bell size, gaining strength. And this was when I knew wanted to help women reach their health and fitness goals. 

Kettlebells became my primary training method, running off and on for navy fitness tests and that one last half marathon I had already signed up for. Guess what: I had the fastest time on my 1.5 mile run that year, and I tied my PR for a half with only 2 long training runs. The rest was owed to kettlebell training.

I trained and earned my first kettlebell instructor certification. Had two babies in 21 months. And felt the desire to start running again after my second. As a certified Postnatal Fitness specialist, I knew to return to running slowly. So I did.

Over the years, I’ve trained alone and I’ve trained with a group. I always had a better race day when I trained with others, even if we weren’t running the same race. 


What I know now, after more than 2 decades of running: 

  • The power of a plan is more than just numbers on paper
  • The power of strength is VITAL to remain injury free
  • The power of accountability to not just cross the finish line, but to get there with a smile on your face and lots of cheers!

I started the StrongMom RunClub as a Facebook group at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. And it is one of my favorite places to hang out. The support for each other, the friendships that I have seen develop, just show how great it is to support each other. 

I did sprinkle in some 5k and 10k races in there too over the years too, but the half marathon holds a special place in my heart as my first race distance.  And I completed my first half post-baby in May 2021!

All calls will be recorded and distributed via email within 48 hours after the call.

I don't have a race goal per se. Is this still a good option for me?

Your goal doesn’t need to be for a race. It can be a certain distance by a specific date. Or even a faster pace for a prescribed distance. Having a coach to help take the guess work out of your training will help you focus on getting out the door, not what to do!

Training for a race should be an enjoyable process. Let’s work together so you can have fun while you run and cross the finish line with confidence!
