A quotation you like…

"We are different, in essence, from other men. If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon."  - Emil Zatopek

 

Why do you run?

 

So I can eat more of the stuff that I love… oh, and because I like to be outdoors.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Standing in the starting coral at the Boston Marathon… what a rush!

Why do you pace?

 

New to the pacing gig, so I can assist others and be a first-hand witness to them meeting their goals. I want to pay-forward the favor from those that have paced for me.  



Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

When I pace, it’s about all of those in my group.  I want everyone to meet their time. 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Relax and enjoy the run.  I will worry about the pace and time.
