A quotation you like…

"Challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”


Why do you run?


I run because there are those moments when your foot hits the pavement, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a short run around the block, a marathon across the world or any race in between – the world goes quiet, and it’s this instantaneous moment of peace... and it is beautiful. Plus, the travelling, all these races I have run have given me the opportunity to see the world.

Describe your best marathon memory.


There are too many. I would have to say the first time I ran New York City. I have run marathons before and have run plenty after, but there is nothing like the crowd support throughout the entire race. It is indescribable. I do have another one, and it was not necessarily my marathon, but when my husband completed his 300th marathon, when he crossed the finish line, seeing the smile of accomplishment on his face and his friends around him --- it just made me so proud.

Why do you pace?


Before I began pacing, I always admired the pacers I had followed when I was trying to reach my time. There were moments when I didn’t think I would be able to finish, and they encouraged me. I pace because I want to be that support for others, to believe in them when they hit that wall and help them cross the finish line.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


My husband and I were pacing the Philly Runfest Half Marathon, and one of the gentlemen we were pacing had recently gone through health issues and was unsure if he would even be able to complete the race. He did, under his goal time, and he was so appreciative he even reached out to us afterwards to thank us.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Someone should want to run in my pace group because they will be able to immerse themselves in the moment and truly enjoy it because I will keep them on pace.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Get a good night’s rest, stay hydrated, enjoy the experience and rest assured I will keep us at a steady pace, and you will reach your goal.
