Describe your best marathon memory.


Having my family welcome me at the finish in Maui, HI as I completed a marathon in all  50 states

Why do you pace?


Help others achieve their goals and fuel my joy of running

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I met and paced someone from my hometown who was running his first half marathon.  He ran conservatively with me then surged ahead toward the end to beat his brother’s PR.  He waited at the finish to share his delight.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I will encourage and entertain you.  I enjoy meeting people while I run along.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


The group will work together, keeping a relaxed and upbeat mood.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Besides pacing, I coach marathon training at Lifetime Fitness in St Louis Park, MN.


What philanthropic activities do you have?


I enjoy volunteering at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.  I serve on the board of Women Build, interview family candidates, and participate on Global Village trips.
