Allow me to introduce myself....

My name is Melanie and I am a graphic designer and own and operate my own studio, Graphix Ink. I am married and a mother of two very active young boys. I have been active since I was a child  and my past is sprinkled with numerous different sports including the US Waterski Show Team.
I took up running as a hobby to improve my health which quickly turned into competitive running then adventure and obstacle course racing. I am now a sponsored athlete through the Women of Obstacle Racing Pro Team (WOR) which has empowered me to continue my love for adventure. I am a part of Team Burgh who train in my hometown and compete on a regular basis.
I also enjoy Crossfit, weight lifting, hiking, snowshoeing, and many other outdoor sports and fitness activities.
I find inspiration through my love of the outdoors and strive to inspire those around me on a daily basis by sharing fitness tips, exercises and nutrition. I continue to find my own inspiration from my husband and children. My boys drive me to be the best at everything I do because I know they are watching and this makes me conscious of setting a good example for them. They’ve taught me many life lessons on how to survive, never give up and to be the best you can be at everything you do and I'm eager to share this with everyone.
Feel free to subscribe to my blog.  In turn, I will strive to continuously share my love for healthy living where I hope to inspire a few people to join me in a life worth living.
