Melissa... Living Her Best Life In Bolder 🔥

This month’s Bolder Spotlight is Super Mom Melissa Marowelli! Her fun personality shines through in her skirt choices and in her posts online. Her dedication to running and living life to the fullest is inspiring! Let's get to know Melissa and her Bolder journey so far:

I'm a mom of 6 & a middle school cross country coach. I am a 3x Ironman finisher and I will represent TeamUSA for Long Course at ITU World's in Almere, Netherlands in 2021.

Current fitness goals are preparing for a 8 mile open water swim event around Mackinac Island in late August and then 3 more 140.6 distance triathlons between September to November.

My Bolder skirts are a vital part of my training. I can trust that I can wear them in any weather, any where, and I will not chafe. With as much training as I do, I don't have time to be sidelined dealing with wound care.

I've been part of the Bolder community for a LONG time now... at least 6 years. It was always kind of a running joke that you never divulge how many skirts were actually in your closet so that way you couldn't be accused of having "too many" #plausibledeniability

In December of 2020, I realized that I had a handful of skirts that I just hadn't worn for a while, so I decided that starting Jan. 1 2021 I would start working my way through wearing all of my skirts & not re-wearing a skirt until EVERY skirt had been worn... it's the middle of May & I still have multiple hangers to go before I run out of skirts.
