A quotation you like…

“if you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down.”

Why do you run?

 

Because if feels great and because I can.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

The final miles of running my PR at Los Angeles in February 2016. After a long injury sustained during the 24-hour world championship in Italy in April 2015, I did manage to come back stronger, both overall and during the race, where I was able to finish faster than I started.

Why do you pace?

 

To help others reach their goals and encourage them along the way.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Pacing a young first-time marathoner who ran every step of the way right by my side for a sub-3:45 finish at New York City 2016.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I’m an experienced and very consistent pacer, always aiming for a steady effort and finishing within a few seconds of the magic number of 30 seconds under the goal time, plus I love the camaraderie of giving back to the running community through pacing.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Remember to fuel and hydrate regularly, and otherwise just follow the sign and enjoy the ride!
