Melissa at the 2016 Southern California Ragnar Relay with team Nathan Performance.
Melissa Godsey is the Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke FITness Program Director and FIT Professional, joining the team in February 2013. She grew up in Hardy, Virginia. Even though she’s moved away twice, to Charlotte, North Carolina and Dallas, Texas, she and her family always come home to the mountains.
Melissa runs because she LOVES the endorphins! She enjoys running in Downtown Roanoke, or anywhere she’s running with her friends. Melissa’s favorite race is the Nashville Rock & Roll Half Marathon, after running it the year there were tornado warnings and monsoon rain; she had so much fun, and felt like a kid again!
Melissa’s running must-have items are her Nathan handheld water bottle and her Addaday massage stick. Post run, she likes to have coffee and whatever her husband has cooked up while she was out running!
When she’s not running, Melissa loves spending time with her family, and has recently discovered how much she enjoys kayaking!
