A quotation you like…

When your legs get tired run with your heart.


Why do you run?


I was a smoker for a long time. I finally decided to quit (best decision ever) and decided to get a treadmill to help me stay active and fit. It was all downhill from there. I signed up for my first half marathon a couple years later, placed in my age group, and was hooked. 

Describe your best marathon memory.


It would probably have to be the Erie Marathon, where I qualified for Boston. Conditions were perfect, my training was on point, and I never hit the dreaded wall It was meant to be.

Why do you pace?


I love helping people achieve their running goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I paced a friend of mine who wanted to get a half marathon PR. She didn’t believe she could do it, but I knew she could. I had so much fun talking her through it and keeping her company. She got a 3 minute PR and I could not have been more proud!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I truly love running and I love helping people reach their running goals.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Trust the process and believe in yourself! You’ve got this!
