Why do you run?

 

I run to reach goals. I run to stay fit. I run because it feels good to run with my friends.

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Watching the women’s Olympic Trials for the marathon in Boston and running Boston the next day will be a marathon moment not soon outdone.

 

Why do you pace?

 

I know each and every person has run hundreds of miles and worked hard to get to race day.  The one aspect that’s hard to train for is execution. I am here to help.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I watched two of my friends train hard for two years attempting to qualify for Boston.  On race day I paced them and saw two years of effort in their faces as they crossed the finish line for their BQ’s. It was a shining moment for them.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I run even splits down to the second. I do not bank time. I like to have fun out on the course.

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Relax and have fun!!  Enjoy the city that’s graciously hosting you.
