Why do you run?

 

To keep me sane and I enjoy meeting old and new friends. There is always something you can learn from fellow runners.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

I ran Hamptons Marathon and used it as just a training run. My goal was to finish a 100 mile race before the year end so I wanted to pack in as many long run as possible. I didn’t even try hard and PR’d and at mile 16, I was able to pass everyone who was ahead of me.

Why do you pace?

 

It’s the best way to get more marathons in at different locations.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I actually paced a blind person once. It’s wonderful to help him achieve his goal as he had no one that was able to help him that month.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I’m consistent with my pace.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Don’t push too hard on the downhill as energy is needed for the flat or uphill after that.

Anything else you’d like to share?

It’s ok to DNF. There are more races than one can handle.

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

Trying to raise fund for http://orphansfuturesalliance.org/
