Describe your best marathon memory.


I was training for an ultra marathon while I was stationed in New Jersey, and then before the race, I was notified that I was getting deployed.  I ended up running the same ultra distance on the day of the event, but I did it in Iraq with full body armour. 


Why do you pace?


I enjoy helping others meet their goals, and I like being a part of their victories. 


Tell us your best pacing experience.


It wasn’t for a marathon, but I paced a blind man during a 10 miler.  I was so honored and humbled to have been a part of such an experience.  Not only did he make his goal, but he outsprinted me to the finish line. 


Why should someone run in your pace group?


No one there will be more amped up than me.  I will give you everything I’ve got.  I want you to not only achieve your goal, but have fun and make some memories doing it. 


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Stay motivated and plan on having fun.
