A quotation you like…

“Just run.”

 

Why do you run?

 

Running is a great way to relax and stay in shape, yet, I enjoy the personal challenge that comes with approaching marathons.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Breaking 3 hours!

Why do you pace?

 

Rather than aiming for a PR in marathons, pacing offers the challenge of hitting various pace goals during a race to ensure you hit the overall pace goal for the race.  This makes pacing a fun challenge for me and it is fun helping others reach their goal! 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Being part of a pace group is a fun way to approach the marathon, you can feed off the group energy to reach your goal. 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Don’t try anything on race day that you did not test during training – especially anything you eat or drink.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Save the beer for after the marathon.

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

Supporting programs for U.S. military veterans.
