Describe your best marathon memory.


I was one of the faster marathoners in a particular race, and I was feeling good.  But, then I hit around mile 20 and started cramping very bad.  As I started limping around in total agony, a slow half marathoner caught up to me.  She was nice enough to pull out some anti-cramp cream and gave it to me.  I was able to finish that race because of someone much slower running half the distance I was.  It shows that anyone can be a hero to anyone else! 

Why do you pace?


I feel I have a gift.  And I would like to use that to help others achieve their goals.  I’ve been helped out by numerous pacers in various ways in the past.  I want to be able to give back to the universe. 

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Cheyenne Marathon.  I grew up in Wyoming, so it was fun to run around my hometown years after I left. 

Why should someone run in your pace group?


To get a great time and maybe share some good conversation.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Nothing new on race day.  Drink a lot of water.  Bring extra salt packets; you never know who may need some!
