A quotation you like…

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. -Lao Tzu

 

Why do you run?

 

To experience nature, connect with something greater, wiser, and older than myself. To experience my body and to get “in the zone”.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

There was a gentleman I met at the starting line of the San Francisco International. He was from Africa and said that race was his life's running goal. He was fast and left me around mile 8 on the Golden Gate. I passed him in mile 23, he was crying and limping terribly. We shared my emergency cramp drink (coconut water, salt, pineapple) and finished together. Times didn't matter, I bet we always remember that moment together.

Why do you pace?

 

I love empowering and watching others reach their goals. If I can be a supporting factor in that process, sign me up!

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

My clients often run races I pace. Feeling their self-pride is incredible.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I will hit the stride from step one through the finish line. Nothing but positive energy and vibes for all. I also carry some emergency food and drink items, find me if needed – I'll be on pace!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

You're here for a reason. You've trained, it's time to let go and enjoy the ride!
