Describe your best marathon memory.

 

1.)   Starting across the Verrazano Bridge to the Sounds of Frank Sinatra

2.)   Running through the different ethnic parts of Brooklyn – Polish, Spanish, Jewish, etc. parts of town. The Unbelievable crowd support in multiple languages

 

Why do you pace?

 

I enjoy meeting people and hearing their stories of why they run.  Also, helping runners accomplish their goals.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Taking over the 3:00 hour ½ marathon pace team/Pittsburgh 2009 at Mile 9 when the pacer needed to tend to a specific runner. After helping out at the start line, I was just finishing a nice large breakfast when the POD (Pacer On Demand) call came.  I met some great people and finished on pace (and kept my breakfast in me!)

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

You will have fun and do well to achieve your goals!

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Practice your pace, plan your race and race your plan. HAVE FUN!!
