Why do you run?

 

Initially it was to burn off my puppy’s excess energy so he wouldn’t eat the furniture. Too bad it didn’t work. Since then I find it relaxing when I am not stressing over races.

 

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

The California Off Road Marathon allowing me to run with my puppies. Tomo trained for dozens of marathons. It was only fair he finally got to run one. He had to drop due to the heat but has completed a couple 50k and a few halfs.

 

Why do you pace?

 

Try to help others meet their goals.

 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Seeing people accomplish something they did not think they could do.

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I have finished one out of the money several times. So if you beat me to the finish you might take home a check. But more importantly, I know where the beer stops are and accommodate them in my pacing.

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Stay with the group, not me. The collective effort will get everyone to the beer tent on time.

 

Anything else you’d like to share?

Have fun. If you are running with me, you are not going to win, and marathons are a lot of work if you are not having fun.
