A quotation you like…

 

 

Why do you run?

 

For the health and physical benefits, personal challenges, and to train for competition.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Achieving a pre-set goal and beating the projected goal time 2 times, with something left in the tank each time.   The marathon is a fun mental game as well, and breaking through the tough mental challenges is always rewarding.

Why do you pace?

 

To witness the joy and triumph when runners meet their goals.  The group dynamics are fun to engage each personality in the group and learn everyone’s strengths and weaknesses and help them through the challenges.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

All of my pacing experience has been fantastic.   To have runners come thank you for helping them achieve their goals is the most rewarding aspect of pacing.  

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I like to do the hard work in figuring our pace and mile splits, runners in my group are there for the enjoyment of a nice long run!  My pacer goals are to run even splits slightly under marathon goal pace to ensure we have some wiggle room at the end in case some runners need to back off.  

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Bring your smile.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I usually start talking about post race food/sweet treats about mile 18 or so.
