Don’t worry about the time or you pace. That’s my job. Just enjoy the run and scenery.


Anything else you’d like to share?

It is very satisfying to help others achieve there goal of completing their first, second or 100th marathon. There is nothing like crossing the finish line and seeing the emotion on peoples faces after they have crossed. That is what makes pacing worth while.
