Craft to run in Disney half marathon

Staff writer

Melissa Craft, wife of Marion high and middle school physical education/health teacher Shaun Craft, is training to run in the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon through Epcot at Disney World in Florida in February. She is running to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Craft is a 2001 graduate of Marion High School. She said she enjoys running but finds it hard to find the time with a young baby and a 4-year-old.

“I usually push them in a double stroller when I do my practice runs,” she said. “That makes them more tolerable.”

Craft has participated in the Run for your Momma race at Marion County Park and Lake. She hopes to inspire others to share her cause.
