Who do you train with?

I run alone or with friends, but have a personal trainer for cross training (I am lazy when it comes to cross training so I need the extra kick in the tush!)

Personal goals

I had HUGE running goals this year and have completed most of them. The last two things on my list are to 1) Complete my 100th marathon/ultra, and 2) Complete a 100 mile ultra-marathon. Both I hope to accomplish on Oct. 3rd-4th!



A quotation you like…

“Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t. “


Why do you run?


To stay fit both mentally and physically.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Crossing the finish line at my first Boston Qualifier! I thought it was something I would NEVER be able to do, but I worked hard all through the winter just hoping to PR. The weather was AWFUL freezing cold and raining the entire race, but when I crossed the finish line (almost 11 minutes under my BQ), I started to cry. I had no friends or family there to greet me, so I told a volunteer that I had just qualified for Boston and she congratulated me, gave me a big hug and let me cry on her shoulder for few minutes. It was a GREAT moment!!

Why do you pace?


There is no better feeling that helping someone reach their goal. No matter how fast or slow, it is great to vicariously live through the excitement a first time racer feels when they cross the finish line for the first time or PR on a race. I get as misty-eyed as they do!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I have had great experiences in every race I have paced. My favorite pacing experiences are when I get to pace a first time marathoner or half marathoner. I love to see them cross the finish line!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


The obvious reason is my last name is Pace! I am fun, experienced and full of good stories to keep you entertained and to take your mind off the pain! ;-)

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Stay with me until mile 23 (of the marathon) or 10 (of the half)! People sometimes start with the pacer, feel good after a few miles then take off thinking they will finish faster, only to have me catch them walking and seriously out of gas in the final miles. If you trust me, I will get you to the final miles feeling good. If you feel good enough to leave me in the last 3 miles, great! GO GET IT!
