A quotation you like…

“Marathon running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop and the part that wants to keep going.”


Why do you run?


To stay healthy, to see what I can achieve, to see wonderful sunrises, to clear my head

Describe your best marathon memory.


2016 New York City Marathon when I qualified for Boston.  A bucket list item achieved!

Why do you pace?


To help others achieve their goals is incredibly fulfilling and fun!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Pacing my 10 year old in his first 5K.  He ran the entire way and most importantly, he had fun. 

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’ll run even effort throughout the race and will be your biggest cheerleader…especially after mile 20.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Use me to set your pace and relax your mind.  I’ll do all the work on figuring out our paces.

Anything else you’d like to share?

If you want to follow my training and races on Strava, I’m “blind ref”.


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I coach my son’s ice hockey team and I have volunteered in some local races when I don’t race.
