My name is Mel. I’m a runner, a military wife, and a daughter of the King.
Running to Jesus is my brand new blog. It is an inspirational running blog, sharing my personal journey of how running the roads brings me closer to Jesus Christ. Here I talk about my training ups and downs and how I get through it all.
Growing up I did competitive taekwondo, where it was my goal to compete in the Olympics. Many weeks were spent training 5 hours a day, 6 days a week. After several severe injuries and surgeries, I decided to step back from the sport I love so much and focus on something new: running. At 21 years old I ran my first marathon, and a year and a half later I’m still going strong. While I’m not the fastest, my competitive nature pushes me to be better every day.
