A quotation you like…

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Why do you run?


 I meet the nicest people. I have never met a runner that I didn't like.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Crossing the finish line of my first marathon. I had overcome two failed attempts to complete a marathon. When I finally made it over the finish line, I didn't care about my time, only that I had achieved my goal to finish.

Why do you pace?


To encourage and empower others to make it to the finish line and to give something back. I had a good pacer for my PR race that set a good example for me that I wanted to follow. 

Tell us your best pacing experience.


My first pacing experience was memorable because it was a local race for me. I was able to point out points of interest to the group. We didn’t just run past buildings, we talked about them. It was interesting to the out-of-towners as well as interactive. Miles just seem to fly by. I also had two people that day who set PRs.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Group running makes the miles go by so much faster. Time flies when you are having fun. In my group we have a blast.  If you like to talk, this is your group. If you like to listen, this is your group. Join in and come along.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Trust in your training. Race day is for having fun and reaping the rewards of your hard work.

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I will soon be a running buddy for “girls on the run” an after school program that encourages young girls to run a 5k.
