Are you a new or experienced runner?

I wouldn't say I'm new or experienced - more moderate. I can run, just not fast and well. My breathing is horrible and stride/form I'm sure isn't right. (I"ve been getting better since joining and have seen a big difference since switching to NB minimus shoes and a shorter/quicker step)

Why do you run or why do you want to run?

To stay fit, to try to get better at running, to do races and mud runs, triathlons, etc And also for the company and accountability

What are your running goals, i.e., run a marathon, become a better runner, recover from injury, get in shape, etc. ?

get in shape, become a better runner, do triathlons (sprint ones first, then maybe an olympic and half someday....and half marathon if i'm lucky)

Do you have any special experience or training?

Not pertaining to running, no

How did you hear about FRC?

a friend told me about so i could get out of the house and stop losing my sanity ha


Hi, I'm Melanie. I want to get out of the house while I'm looking for a civilian job, and have people to hang out with. I'm a Loadmaster in the USAFR. I just completed my fifth sprint triathlon...
