Why do you run?


Running is my therapy

Describe your best marathon memory.


Running up heartbreak hill at my first Boston Marathon and looking into the crowd and seeing my son cheering me on.

Why do you pace?


I love to give back to the running community and help others achieve their goals. And it’s just a blast to pace fellow runners.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


In the last couple miles of the Lincoln Marathon, a guy was fading and I motivated him to hang tough and finish strong. We ran hard and he qualified for Boston by 8 seconds.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’m all about having fun and making race day a great experience. I will do anything I can to help you hit your goals and finish with a smile on your face.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Bring confidence and a smile, I’ll take care of the rest to get your to the finish line.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Feel free to ask me anything question. I’ve done every distance of Triathlon and running including 100 milers and Ironman races
