Go as long as you can, and then take another step.


Why do you run?


After quitting smoking after 28 years, I started out walking a lot, as this progressed that athlete in me started to come back to life, I wanted to find out if I could still run a mile, I not at a certain pace, but just run the entire distance, I couldn’t. That started the spark and over the next few years I slowly started building my training and increasing the distances I wanted to run.  

Describe your best marathon memory.


Finishing my first 50k ultramarathon was just such sense of awe. Realizing you could go past the marathon distance was incredible. The day was filled with ups and downs from everyone looks great at mile of a 50k (I uttered to a random person cheering), to salted potatoes are the greatness invention ever, my feet have never hurt so bad, please no more rocks, and finally that amazing flat last couple miles running to the finishing line passing people cheering I was filled with so many happy emotions including please get these shoes off. HAHAHA

Why do you pace?


I love supporting all runners on their journey no matter their pace or distance and encouraging them to not be limited by what their mind tells them they can’t do.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I will not only help you achieve your goal time, but amuse you with the many pointless stories including, the awkward you had to be there, but you weren’t, that run seemed like a good idea at the time, and many I think it’s a great story, but no one else does.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Relax? What? Be excited, you’ve trained hard for this, time to enjoy and feel everything on race day.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Winter running is the best!
