Why do you run?


I use running to stay healthy and fit enough to run after my nieces.



Describe your best marathon memory.


During the New York City marathon, I dedicated each of the 26 miles to different individuals.  I ran the last mile for my dog, Max, because he was my training partner through all the rough morning and late evening workouts.  He never quits!


Why do you pace?


I love running and enjoy when others do too.  It is fun to see and help others reach their running goals!  


Tell us your best pacing experience.


When I paced the Miami marathon a woman ran in the pace group from start to finish.  She encouraged others along the course but the best was her excitement at the finish; it was so much fun!  She could not believe she had just run 26 miles!


Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am an experienced runner who keeps a consistent pace.  I love hearing about what makes others start running and what keeps them going.  I love to laugh and have a good time.


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Be ready for encouragement and fun while we finish within our goal time!!!
