A quotation you like…

“Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen.” –


Why do you run?


I started running to keep myself fit when my horse went lame several years back. The social aspect of running has kept me hooked!

Describe your best marathon memory.


NYC was special…I ran it dressed as the “Statue of Liberty” and got pictures with spectators holding their national flag along the way (18 different countries!) as well as up on a fire truck with NYC firefighters.

Why do you pace?


I want to pace to help others realize the excitement of participating in (and finishing!) a marathon.

Tell us your best pacing experience.



Why should someone run in your pace group?


My goal is to help you reach your goal. I welcome anyone who wants help maintaining pace or is looking for race-day company!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Stuff I am sure you have heard: Carb load and get sleep starting two days prior to the race; hydrate well the day before the race, eat what you know works for you the morning of the race. Beyond that, just relax, you can do this!
