Melissa of New Market, Maryland began running as a middle school student but did not begin running distance races until she turned 30. Since then Melissa has raced numerous races to include the Boston Marathon in 2009 and JFK 50 mile ultra marathon.  She has run over 30 full marathons and her running career peeked in 2009 with  first place in the Rehoboth Marathon for her age group with a PR of 3:35.  Since that time, Melissa decided to change gears and focus on pacing marathons to help others achieve their goals as she finds this extra rewarding.  Melissa believes in a steady pace and tries to make races fun to help get over the mental challenge.  She is looking forward to a long career of running and helping others achieve their goals.
