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.


Each and every time I pace as I meet new runners and help them achieve their goals.


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 and keep their minds off of the mileage.


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.
