Why do you run?


Because I enjoy it.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Being chased down by the Cookie Monster in the middle of a race and handed a cookie.  Excellent mid-race fuel.

Why do you pace?


It’s wonderful helping people achieve what they have been working for.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I was able to help a woman that had come back from cancer qualify for Boston.  Seeing her face at the end was priceless.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Because we will have oodles of fun! I promise! Also, my lies will be equally convincing as we are finishing your race.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Trust your training. Make sure your decisions during your race are supported by that training.
