Melissa Vitale - Secretary

When did you become a member of W.A.R.?

Summer of 2011

What kind of races do you run?

5Ks, 10Ks, and Half-Marathons

What was your favorite race and why?

I actually have two favorite races.

The first is the OKC Memorial Half Marathon in 2013. I had beat my previous time by nearly 10 minutes, even though I was unable to properly train for it and I had a cold! My second is the Paint Downtown Pink 5K in 2013. I set a new PR for a 5K, and there were so many people cheering me on and introducing themselves to me after the race, it just felt so good to be a part of WAR.

What interests do you have outside of running?

I am extremely active with the Fort Smith Little Theatre, and I also enjoy baking and planning events.

Fun Fact (something nobody knows about you):

I once bungee jumped 13 stories!
