Melissa Hobson – Membership

Melissa started running consistently in January 2018, two friends encouraged her to join the Fleet Feet 5K Finish Program. She trained and ran the race but more importantly, she made LOTS of new friends. She soon joined the TCTC and began running more local races, the $5K race series, and the occasional hash run. The relationships and experiences are the kind she would not have wanted to miss out on! 

Melissa’s sons and brother are runners but she never considered running early in life. Her family had an annual tradition to be part of the Beat the Heat 5K, first, it was to cheer for her younger brother when he ran then for both of her sons when they began running. 

Now that her children are grown, she can mix traveling and running together. She completed two marathons in Richmond and recently completed a half marathon along the coast of California. She has joined friends for several of the NC Beach BAM series half marathons and loves running at the beach! 

Melissa is excited to be a part of the Twin City Track Club Board and looks forward to serving, meeting new friends, and enjoying time with other runners. It’s exciting for her that there is such a diverse group of runners. You don’t have to be a fast runner to be a part of the club and it is easy to get plugged in and involved.  So, if you are considering starting to run, wanting to run more, or just want to meet new friends, TCTC can help you to do that. So, reach out! You won’t be sorry that you did!
