Why do you pace?


Running has impacted my life in very profound ways, introducing me to some of my best friends, inspiring frequent travels, and helping me maintain balance. Pacing is a great way for me to give back to the running community and help runners achieve their goals. I have experienced firsthand the benefits of a good pace team, keeping me motivated and distracted from checking mile splits, and I want to offer that support to others.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Missoula Marathon, July 2016 – I had not set a time goal, but I met a small pacing group at about mile 22, and the pacers immediately engaged me with questions, stories, and motivation. The final 4+ miles were much easier to complete in their presence. My goal is to provide such an experience to the runners in my pace groups.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Fun and camaraderie! We are a team, and we will help each other reach our collective goal. I have many stories to share of good and bad running, personal, and professional experiences, and I have plenty of advice to offer, having run nearly 40 marathons and having learned from my marathon-running and marathon-pacing parents.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Running a marathon is transformative, so focus on your “why” and enjoy the process.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I want to pursue a PhD in Mathematics.
