A quotation you like…

“Pain only hurts”

 

Why do you run?

 

I started running in my early 20s just to see if I could complete a marathon. I was instantly hooked, and threw myself into every aspect of running: different distances, volunteering, coaching, pacing, etc.  I love that running always offers a challenge, and after several years, through running, I continue to discover new personal strengths.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Too many to choose from!

Why do you pace?

 

I pace to help others reach their goals. Even though I haven’t met many of the runners before we start our 26.2 mile journey, it’s amazing to witness the end results of their months of hard work.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I can’t pick just one, but every marathon I pace I have someone in my group hit a PR or complete their first marathon. Each time it’s just as exciting as the first time.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Because I love people! I guarantee I’ll help you reach your goal, and we’ll have fun getting there.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

As cliché as it is, trust your training, and stay focused on what you want to accomplish during that race
