About Me

Hi, My name is Melissa Unrath. I'm a proud military spouse, fitness nut, runner, mom to two amazing kids and happily married to my high school sweetheart for 29 1/2 years. My husband retired from the military in Mar 2018 after 27 1/2 years we have made Kansas City, MO our home. We moved 14 times during those military career years. We make every place a home, kids start new schools and made friends, volunteered, entered many different races, joined many running groups, and wouldn't have changed a thing. I feel that living in many different states and overseas has really expanded my horizons and shown me to be resilient, flexible, and not be afraid to try new things.
