A quotation you like…

There’s no right way to do the wrong thing


Why do you run?


To stay fit and healthy, to see the world from a different perspective, to meet others and learn from their experiences.

Describe your best marathon memory.


I ran the Chicago marathon in 2012 to raise money for American Greyhounds.  Of 38,000 runners only 5 ran for that charity.  At mile 14 there were volunteers and greyhounds out along the charity mile cheering us on.  It lifted me and was a true inspiration.  Finishing the race knowing that I’d helped to save lives and give some greyhounds a restful retirement was a great feeling.

Why do you pace?


To help others achieve their goals, to learn from others so I can become a better runner.  Everyone has a unique story as to why they run, what got them started and I love to hear them

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Having people wait for me at the finish line to say “thanks” was as rewarding as getting a PR

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Because we’re going to finish that race together – and have fun and laughs along the way.  Plus I have an accent and that will keep everyone entertained!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Relax and enjoy – you got this.  The training is the hard part, the race is the reward.
