Marcie (in the grey shirt) said, "Woot! I would not have had such a great experience and successful time (was hoping for under 4 hours) in my first marathon without you guys and without Rich. I would seriously sign up for another marathon if I knew he was pacing a group!"

Pacing my first marathon (at Rockford) was quite the experience. I came in 17 seconds ahead of time with an exact pace of 9:44 min/mile.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Someone should run with my group if they want to have a good time and enjoy what the course has to offer.

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Be ready to tell stories/jokes and laugh as much as 26.2 mile allows.

Good luck to all participants in all races!

I like to do charity bike rides as often as I can to help raise money for worthy causes.  It’s always good to take something that you enjoy and put it to a better use.
