Personal goals

I’d like to do a trail marathon

 

 

 

 

 

Why do you run?

 

I’ve never been able to sit still so running is a great outlet for me. 

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Finishing Pikes Peak!  This marathon was definitely on my lifetime to-do list and I trained hard but the highest altitude I was able to train at was 2500 ft.  Rounding the corner to the finish shoot was the best feeling of personal accomplishment.

 

Why do you pace?

 

I coached a marathon training team for several years in Richmond and love helping other runners reach their goals- especially first timers.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I’m a newbie although I’ve relied on pacers for many of my marathons, including my first time qualifying for Boston.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

The camaraderie of a pace group really keeps you going when the going gets tough.  I love helping others reach their running goals and we’ll have fun along the way!

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

I love talking with other runners and sharing our running experiences and stories along the route- it makes the time fly by!

 

Anything else you’d like to share?

Marathon race day is like Christmas to me- I love to share that enthusiasm!

 

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I volunteer with Girls on the Run, support Stray Rescue, the Humane Society, am involved with the United Way.
