A quotation you like…

“What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.” 


Why do you run?


Stress relief, it gives me time to think, I get to meet new people, it's fun :)

Describe your best marathon memory.


There's nothing like finishing your first marathon!  I completed it with my mom.  It was so emotional and rewarding to cross that finish line!

Why do you pace?


I love getting to know other runners.  I like to hear how and why other people run....their running story.  It's fun to run with a group, laugh, talk and just live.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


It's great finishing a race with a group that you have run 26.2 miles with.  I enjoy the hugs at the end when everyone is all sweaty, tired and SO PROUD of what was accomplished.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Running in a pace group helps so much with a good time...both literally and figuratively.  

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


You are ready for this.  You have put in hours and hours of time.  Now is the time to celebrate all you have trained for.  Lace up your shoes and get ready to enjoy!
