A quotation you like…When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

 

And    Quitters never win and Winners never quit.

Why do you run?   I love to compete in races plus it is a healthy endeavor.

 

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Running in my 1st Boston Marathon, I remember running down the final straightaway on Boyleston St.  with tears of joy flowing.  The crowds were the largest I’d ever seen at a race.and it was quite emotional.

Why do you pace?

 

It’s very rewarding to help other runners achieve their goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Recently I paced at the NJ Half Marathon and one of the runners was so happy to meet me at the starting line and we ran most of the race together.  He actually got a few hundred feet ahead of me and I caught up to him with about a mile to go.  He worked his butt off to finish just ahead of me and got under his time goal.  He was hurting afterwards but so thankful that he made his goal.  I told him he ran a great race!  He sincerely thanked me for helping him run his best race to date.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Because we’ll accomplish our  goal time together and we’ll encourage each other along the way..

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Run Smart.  Run Hard.  Have fun!
