Why do you run?

 

It keeps me grounded. Things come into better perspective after a run.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

My favorite memory is when I was completing my first marathon and I came down to the home stretch with maybe ½ mile left. My whole family was there cheering me on and my kids ran on the side of the road as I finished.

Why do you pace?

 

I like the opportunity to give back.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

The best experience is when I have people who have stayed with me the entire time and watching them hit their goal time. I enjoy the opportunity to hear the stories on why they run.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

If they run in my group, they don’t need to worry about checking their time, calculating their pace, etc. –that’s my job. And there is always my bubbly personality.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

At mile 18, when you feel like you want to slow down–don’t. Stick with the group and we’ll get it done together.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Running has been a great experience for me. I love seeing the results of training hard.

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I race direct a 10k/5k race every year as part of the city summer festival.
