A quotation you like…

You can do a lot in a lifetime, If you don't burn out too fast.
You can make the most of the distance,

First you need endurance, First you've got to last.

-Neil Peart (RUSH)

Why do you run?


I run to stay in shape. Running is something I do not take for granted because I know too many people who do not have that luxury.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Running my first Soldier Marathon and when I didn’t think I could run anymore after 18 miles; a pacer came along and pulled me off THE WALL!

Why do you pace?


To encourage others when they don’t think they have it in them to finish, just like I was. Pay it forward!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Pacing the most recent Red Nose in Columbus, Georgia. The weather was warmer than usual and the wind was brutal.  I could barley hold my sign in the air, but we managed to get it done without losing the sign to the wind.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I want runners to reach their goal and always strive to do their best.  I have been in those shoes before and even the smallest bit of encouragement can go a super long way when it comes to the marathon. I might have really good music playing too. 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Wear your best pair of running shoes, we will start slow and work our way to a steady pace.  We will make sure we hydrate and eat at aid stations because we will need the energy to finish the race. We will have fun!

Anything else you’d like to share?

Running a marathon is not easy.  If you finish one, at any pace, no one will ever be able to take that away from you.


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I enjoy doing the Columbus Road Runners’ races in Columbus because they are always for a good cause.
