A quotation you like…

A marathon is only 34,392 steps. You can't complete one without taking the first.

















 

 

Why do you run?

 

For relaxation and how I feel post run.  I also travel a lot so I get to see new areas from a whole different perspective than those who travel exclusively in 4 wheel vehicles. 

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

My first marathon that I ran that qualified for Boston was an extremely proud moment given all of the hard work and training that I invested to meet that goal.

 

Why do you pace?

 

I truly enjoy helping others meet or exceed their goals. 

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

2010 Jacksonville Marathon as the six runners that made up my corps group all qualified for Boston for the first time. A lot of emotions after we crossed the finish line.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

If they want to meet their goals and are motivated I will help them attain that goal while having a good time

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Enjoy yourself, relax, and make sure you look at the scenery that’s offered on each marathon course.
