We're thrilled to have our good friend and awesome Kiwi runner Melissa Moon joining us in the Run for Research at the upcoming AMI Round the Bays event. Melissa, the two-time World Mountain Running Champion and World Stair Racing Champion is the Malaghan Institute Ambassador.
To help runners on the day, we asked Melissa what inspires her to train hard, run fast and prepare for her races. She gave us an awesome playlist of songs that we've called the Cure for Fatigue, which you can download from iTunes here.
Melissa says music is very important to her and she always selects a couple of songs that connect her with a particular race. For her recent New York Empire State Building win it was Lady GaGa's 'You and I' where she talks about the city of New York and 'just knowing when something feels right'.
At AMI Round the Bays you'll see a couple of different ways we're helping you get through the race. Keep an eye out for our special cures for common running ailments like demotivation. It might be just what you need to keep up with Melissa.
Every Step Brings Us Closer to a Cure.
