Why do you run?


I started back running to improve my tennis game and it stuck. I love the friendships and the people I run with. Challenging myself to different types of races. These are accomplishments you have the rest of your life and remind you that if I can run a marathon that I can do anything!

Describe your best marathon memory.


My best memory is actually of watching a dear friend complete her first NYC marathon, I cried for her just like a I cried when I finished my first.

Why do you pace?


I pace because I love the opportunity to give back and encourage others to see their potential. I used to be a track coach and I miss that and pacing gives me an opportunity to share what I have learned over the years. Nothing brings me greater peace than watching someone finish a race and seeing the joy on their face.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Upon completion of the Space Coast Half having runners crying on my shoulder for finishing at their goal.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am a motivating and supportive leader to all my runners.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Come prepared to run and have fun! If you have a question ask. Don’t forget your snacks and glide!

Anything else you’d like to share?

Spend the week before preparing health wise with good nutrition, hydration and rest. I know it is a big holiday so plan in some balance so you are ready to run!
