Why should someone run in your pace group?


I love to race, encourage and inspire.  I usually am very consistent with my pacing

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Stay with the group, ignore the things others have told you—like you will hit the wall and the last 5 miles are miserable.  Instead, run with your heart and listen to your own body!
