Describe your best marathon memory.

 

The first time that I ran Boston as an official entrant was like no other.  There I was running the Boston Marathon with a number - following in the footsteps of Johnny Kelly, Bill Rodgers and Alberto Salazar, and my hometown was going to cheer for me!

 

Why do you pace?

 

Love to share my love of running with others.  There is nothing more rewarding than helping a runner meet their goals!
