Personal goals

I completed the Run Across Georgia  2013






Why do you run?


Great exercise, stress relief and to get my Rhodesian ridgeback tired


Describe your best marathon memory.


Completing my first marathon with my pacer that I started with after not having run over 13 miles in my life


Why do you pace?


To see the joy in someone’s face when they meet the goal they have set for themselves


Tell us your best pacing experience.


Bringing a runner in who had trained with me for months.  He had doubted that he could finish in the time that he had set.  To see him cross that line with time to spare was very fulfilling.


Why should someone run in your pace group?


Because I am a motivator.  I love to talk to my runners and encourage them along the way


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Start out slow, give it your all at the end, and stay very hydrated along with eating lots of bananas for cramps.


Anything else you’d like to share?

WOOOOHOOO!!  You will understand why later



What philanthropic activities do you have?

Dental mission trips to India and the Ukraine. Local runs for charities like the Run across Georgia for the House of Heroes
