Melody recently won our Run Happy Award for being the biggest cheerleader for the brand. Her amazing, infectious energy never fails to make all of us smile. She’ll take on any task no matter how big, small, complicated, or self-deprecating… as long as it brings happiness to others. She dresses head to toe in Brooks and Moving Comfort apparel EVERY DAY… and bleeds Brooks blue through and through.
