Why do you run?

 

I am so used to it, since I have been doing it for the past 30 years. When I am not able to run I miss doing it.

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

My first marathon at the age of 14½, because it was the first marathon I did not know what to expect; how fast I could run & how to do it. I surprised myself & also friends with a time of 3:15. It took years to realize how special it was.

 

Why do you pace?

 

After running 27 marathons, I want to share the experience I have of keeping a steady pace & helping other runners accomplish their time goals.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Runner’s that I helped pace saying thank you after a few marathons & knowing that I helped them qualify for Boston was special.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I run a steady pace.

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?
