37 year old Canadian, Run as a hobby with friends, taking part in lots of races just for fun- and the medal ;)
Melissa has earned the GoodGym Buckle. Melissa has run one hundred miles! As is Ultra running tradition they do not get a medal they earn a buckle, to wear with more pride than all the lions in Africa. There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe how incredible Melissa is.
Melissa has just run 100Km. That is a very long way to run, but they already know that! Melissa is an inspiration and the embodiment of mind over matter, that is some amazing running. It is said 'If you want to win something, run 100 meters: If you want to experience something, run 100Km.'
'Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.' Melissa has taken that risk, and has run Fifty Miles! That is an awesome achievement.
Melissa has gone ULTRA! They have decided that a marathon is not their limit, and have taken their first steps into ultra distance running.
