Health, fitness and the feeling of accomplishment after each minute/mile


Describe your best marathon memory.


Completing Boston just three weeks after a nasty groin injury sidelined me for nearly 3 weeks


Why do you pace?


I have been blessed with a long running/racing career and look forward to giving back on behalf of all those who gave their time/talents to me


Tell us your best pacing experience.


Running in a 2:10 half marathon pace group alongside an old friend who once believed he would never run again!


Why should someone run in your pace group?


If someone is looking for someone who will “stick to their plan” than I’m their leader—27+ years in the Air Force taught me the value of a disciplined approach


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


If you do the basic preparation I will make darn certain you reach your goal


Anything else you’d like to share?

You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.

I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.



What philanthropic activities do you have?

I am on the Board of Directors for the Mon Trail Conservancy—a non-profit organization that raises money and provides oversight for the Rails-to-Trails in the greater Morgantown, WV area
