A quotation you like…

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.  It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.  Every morning a lion wakes up.  It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.  It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle.  When the sun comes up, you better start running! (African proverb)

 

Why do you run?

 

Because I like to eat and need to burn off the calories!

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Slapping hands with the cheering crowds of Wellesley College and Boston University during the Boston Marathon.

Why do you pace?

 

To share the fun of running and help people accomplish their personal goals.



Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I don’t have a very large repertoire of jokes, but we can exchange stories all morning and the marathon will fly by.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Glide (anti-chaffing product) is worth its weight in gold. Never forget it!



What philanthropic activities do you have?

I support Homes for Our Troops (great organization!), the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and lead the 8th grade boys “D Group” (lively bunch!) at my local church.
