A quotation you like…

“One day I won’t be able to do this anymore – today is not that day” –Unknown


Why do you run?


I run because I noticed that the more I run, the happier I am.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Running a sub 3 hour race and qualifying for the Boston Marathon. It was at my “home race” and lots of friends and family were there. It was one of the best days of my life.

Why do you pace?


I sincerely enjoy helping people in almost any capacity and I love to run marathons – I get to do both as a pacer. 


Tell us your best pacing experience.


My first marathon pacing experience in St. Louis will always be special to me. In another pacing experience, a girl running with the group stopped and puked at mile 25. She came back and passed me in the 26th mile to qualify for Boston.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am one of your biggest fans and most consistent cheerleader on race day.  There is nothing I want more than to see you reach your goal.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


I talk (and sing) a lot while I run. If you’re winded, don’t worry you don’t have to respond – I won’t be offended.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I have a running podcast called Running Buds."
