To help others reach their goals and realize their true potential

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I ran my first 3:10 BQ.  I was the only person in my group to qualify including the pacer.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

You are sure to have a great time.  I will keep things up-beat, positive, and humorous in a psycho-distance runner kind of way!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Trust in your training.  Race day is a celebration of all the endless hours of training you have put it.
