Why do you run?

 

I am completely addicted to it

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Breaking 3 at the 2013 Glass City Marathon after many attempts. Thousands of miles and two 3:00:01 marathons but still kept at it.

Why do you pace?

 

To give others the feeling I have felt from accomplishing my running goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I had the opportunity to pace runners I had coached for a 5k group. It was great to be able to see them accomplish their goal after seeing them put in all their hard work.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

I will keep my group at goal pace and keep the race positive as I’d like to think I’ve experienced most of the highs and lows runners might go through in a half and full marathon.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Stick to your plan – results come from finding a good plan and staying consistent.

 

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I serve on the board for a nonprofit mentoring organization called Mountain Mentors. We mentor at-risk teens in the Toledo, Ohio area. After each mentoring year we either take the mentees on a week-long hike in the White Mountains of NH or on a 250-300 mile bike trip in Ohio.
