A quotation you like…

“I do what I want!”


Why do you run?


Fitness, leeway on my diet, and my naturally competitive attitude.  A race against yourself is the best kind!

Describe your best marathon memory.


The joy and agony of finishing my first marathon (Route 66 in Tulsa, OK).  Swearing up and down that I would never, EVER do anything like that again.  J

Why do you pace?


To be a good ambassador for the sport.  I enjoy running and want others to enjoy it as well.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


After pacing the Fayetteville Half marathon, a couple hugged me and asked me to be in their post-race photo!  I was shocked and humbled.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


My goal is helping you reach your goal.  I’ll do what I can to get you there.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Trust your training.  Marathons are as much mental as physical.  Let’s relax, have some fun, and make it happen!

Anything else you’d like to share?

If it’s your 1st marathon or your 50th, 26.2 miles is a long way.  Don’t set your expectations too high and be sure to fuel and hydrate.


What philanthropic activities do you have?

My company is big into donating to Children’s Miracle Network and I’ve organized volunteer events for a wetland preservation group and Habitat for Humanity.
