Welcome to Mel’s Miles, a blog centered around my journey towards living a healthier life.
My name is Melissa (or you can call me Mel) and I live in Chicago. Positivity is my passion and I believe that a good life requires work. I plan to write about the small efforts I make in hopes of achieving higher levels of health and happiness.
I love running and finished the 2012 Chicago Marathon in 4:32:57 – a time that makes me very proud! I’ve also run 8 half marathons and various shorter-distance races since falling in love with running back in 2010.
In 2014, I plan to focus on achieving personal records on my mile through half marathon times. My eating habits are less healthy than the were before running the marathon last year, so I hope to try out healthy recipes and post about them on this blog as well.
Follow along to read about healthy living tips, running, mental health, and finding balance in a demanding world.
