Describe your best marathon memory.


My favorite memory was during the Florence marathon in Italy during my European vacation

Why do you pace?


To help my fellow athletes to achieve their target goal. Also as a pacer I will be there throughout the race to encourage and answer any questions and help you cross that magical finish line by pushing you to your limits

Tell us your best pacing experience.


2023 Miami Marathon when a couple of runners stayed with me throughout  the race and qualified for their dream boston marathon for the first time after being unsuccessful a few times in the past.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Because you will have very little things to worry about during the race and just focus on staying with me to hit the goal time. I will be there to motivate you when you are struggling; give guidance on the course/upcoming hills and also remind everyone to make use of hydration stations effectively. Every mile splits will be called out loud so that you don’t even have to look at your watch. Lets have a great race.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Just find me at the start line with my ‘Goal Time’ sign. As a pacer I provide you guidance throughout the race.

Anything else you’d like to share?
