Who do you train with?

We have a great group here locally who all train together for marathons. I feel very fortunate to have so many training partners who all run similar paces and distances. Certainly makes marathon training a lot more fun!

A quotation you like…

When you feel like slowing down or giving up, remember why you hung on for so long in the first place.

Personal goals

Keep pushing myself for new PR’s and help others reach their goals.

 

 

 

 

 

Why do you run?

 

There are so many reasons. I love to push myself to new goals and really enjoy the training for those goals. Nothing else compares to the satisfaction and joy running gives me on daily basis, and I absolutely love the camaraderie and friendships that develop because of it.

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Right now, I think it has to be when I got my current PR. There is nothing quite like the realization of reaching a goal you have dedicated so much to achieving.

 

Why do you pace?

 

I feel like pacing is one of my strengths and I love the idea of helping someone during their race to achieve a personal goal. It is a different challenge to enjoy.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I paced with a friend of mine to help him qualify for his first Boston Marathon. It was great to see him get it done.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I will do my absolute best to take all the pressure of pacing off your plate for that day, while providing information, encouragement, and support along the way. And best of all, we will have a lot of fun doing it! We will work together and get the job done!

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

If you want 100% from yourself on race day, then make sure you give 100% of yourself during the training.
