A quotation you like…

One phrase that I constantly ask myself and encourage others to ask themselves is “How bad do you want it?” The answer to that question will determine your success.

 

Why do you run?

 

I run about 2800 miles per year and the thing that always keeps me coming back are people and the running community. When PR’s and fast times are long gone, it’s the friendships and teammates that you will remember most.     

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

You never forget your first BQ

Why do you pace?

 

The feeling of working so hard and ultimately reaching a goal is electric. Helping people get to that point can be just as rewarding.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Running in a pace group is mentally and physically easier than running solo. It can help you stay focused, gauge where you are, and help you ultimately reach your goal. Ideally, when we get down to the last mile or so, I want to see you take off.      

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

You’ve trained hard, made sacrifices, and now you’re ready. Let me take the stress out of racing and checking your watch. You can have confidence knowing that I’m that moving target and if you finish 2 steps ahead of me, you will beat that number I’m holding. 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Set realistic expectations regarding your fitness but know you are capable of so much more than you probably think.

Anything else you’d like to share?

You better run fast or I’ll start singing to you, and nobody really wants that.
