Favorite book, what are you reading now?

The Long Run is my favorite; currently reading a book about food.

 

A quotation you like…

“Miles make Champions.” (a runner, and now a friend, I met during a 50K said this to me…he helped me push through the last few miles of that 50K race to finish as 1st place female). 

Personal goals

Run a sub 3 marathon this fall; race Western States by age 30

 

 

 

 

 

Why do you run?

 

I run because crossing a finish line brings on the BEST high in the world.

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Words cannot describe my best marathon memory….it was simply the Boston Experience. 

 

Why do you pace?

 

Everyone needs to feel the ‘finish line high’ and achieve their goals.  I feed off of others success and like being a part of someone’s accomplishments. 

 

 

 

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

This pace group will qualify MANY runners for the Boston Marathon. And we also will have fun…the time will fly by!

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

It’s your race. Stay committed to your marathon goal.
