Who do you train with?

2 good friends (pro triathlete and pro cyclist)

Personal goals

Return to the triathlon world championships.  Be happy.  Eat whatever I want and still have 6 pack abs.  Basically the same as everybody else.  = )

 

 

A quotation you like…

“Time to go to work” (a friend said this on every start line we ever shared)

Why do you run?

 

I’m very food motivated.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Listening to the buzz and excitement of the crowd at the finish line of Meb’s 2014 Boston Win.

Why do you pace?

 

I love helping others achieve their goals in the sports and hope to promote the growth of running, fitness, and general athleticism in the US.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Letting the folks in my pace group vote on what facial hair I would have for race day. . . and then having to run for 3 and a half hours with mutton chops and a goatee.  Porn star mode.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

We’re going to have a lot of fun and we’re going to get there in the right amount of time.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Keep smiling.  You can’t feel pain when you smile.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Don’t be shy!  Pacers love a good conversation!

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

In addition to pacing, I assist with the University of Pittsburgh Triathlon club and host a weekly track practice in Pittsburgh for anyone to attend.
