A quotation you like…

If you can't fly, then run.
If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving

 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Why do you run?

 

To challenge myself, stay healthy and inspire my family and friends to do the same.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

After completely hitting the wall at Cleveland and failing to achieve my goal of 3:00, my 3-year old son Nate was watching on the side of the road from about 200 yards from the finish. He came out and ran with me across the finish line. It was a very happy and proud moment as a father. Even though I had a terrible race, Nate didn’t know or care and collected his medal and snacks like a 3-year old should.

Why do you pace?

 

I pace because it is a fun way to experience a marathon besides racing it. I also enjoy helping other runners achieve their goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

In 2012 at Pittsburgh, Bart Yasso announced our pace group as we crossed the finish line exactly when the clock ticked to our target of 3:30:00. While we were actually a few seconds fast because of the delay at the start, I don’t think many of the people watching would ever realize that.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I take pacing as seriously as racing. Runners can trust that I will consistently hit the target pace throughout the race.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Trust your training, don’t start too fast and have fun.
