Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Mel
As a wife and mom, running has added a new dimension to my life. At first it was an aid in dropping a few pounds (eventually 170lbs) it actually gave me a new lease on life! I’m a healthier wife and mom and a person my family can be proud of. I’ve been matched with my buddy, Aiden, through the IRun4Michael program, and that has changed my running so much! Aiden has given my running a focus so now when I train and race, every mile is dedicated to him. My goals are primarily on ultra running with the ultimate goal of completing a 100 mile race. There’s no way I could do any of it without the love and support of my husband. I owe him so much! #blessed
What is your biggest goal for 2019?
I’m working towards running my first 100 miler. This is a goal I’ve been working on a couple of years. Fingers crossed!
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
I’m a huge fan of the Large Pocket SPIbelt. I can carry my phone and extra fuel or headlamp batteries when needed on long runs.
Coolest place you have taken your SPIbelt?
Berlin, Germany for the Berlin Marathon in 2015 and 2016 and then London, England for the London Marathon in 2017.
What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
Anything else you would like to share?
The gift of running is exactly that and it is a gift I cherish. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to be Aiden’s runner through the IRun4Michael program. Every run and every race is dedicated to this sweet boy. I really do #IRun4Aiden!
