Why do you run?

 

Firstly running keeps me healthy, strong and fit. I do a lot of thinking and planning when I run alone.

There is nothing better than going for a run to clear the head. I love it, has become part of my life. I have met so many great people through running they have become my second family.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Running Boston was the best experience the whole city lines the streets to cheer us on, I felt like a rock star.

Why do you pace?

 

When I run marathons I always run with a pace group and appreciate the pacer, it’s something always wanted to do. The experience of getting runners to that finish line at their goals time is the best feeling. .

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I had the pleasure to pace my 24 year old daughter through her  first half and we had a few tag along and it was the best experience for me, really enjoyed helping these runners achieve their goal times.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I take my running seriously but at the same time want to make it an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Every runner has a story and I really enjoy meeting new people and talking the miles away.

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

YOU CAN DO THIS!!  The work is done so let’s have a blast and enjoy the scenery and company!

Anything else you’d like to share?

 

Training is so important put the miles in and do the work and you will have success!
