Why do you run?

 

Part of a healthy life style – spending time with a great social community with similar interests and goals

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.

 

Only paced once so far – hopping to quickly grow this number…   HM - Asbury Park, NJ 4/2019.  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
