Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Harrisburg 2018 – Ran smart, stayed on plan: stay easy 1st half, increase pace in small increments over a few miles to 2nd half pace.   Goal was slightly sub 3:40 – actual finish 3:35:26

Why do you pace?

 

Rewarding experience of helping others

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Best part of the experience was knowing that my efforts assisted several runners in achieving their goals  

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I am not just a ‘sign’ to follow.   I will provide advice and encouragement the during the whole run.  I enjoy hearing others’ stories. We are out there for a long time running together – great time to get to know others.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

We are out here to have fun

I am very approachable – don’t hesitate to ask questions, or, to chat during the run

I will go out easy (few seconds slower that goal pace – will make this out over several miles)

I will increase pace in the last 1/3~1/4 for a slightly neg split targeting 30 seconds under post group time.

I slow down at aid stations so that water gets in not on

Anything else you’d like to share?
