Describe your best marathon memory.

 

There are so many, but the most powerful memory is the first I ever had back in Zuerich 2009.  The first 4 miles were an out and back through a tunnel to celebrate its grand opening (The Swiss love building tunnels), and on the way out I ran by the elite African women on their return trip.  I started tearing because I saw how fast and effortlessly they were moving and realized they were running to support themselves.  They motivate me before every race.  I wish running was my job and sure try to run like it is.  

 

 



 

 



 

 

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Because running with a pacer is the easiest way to hit your goal time during a race.  You don’t have to think, let someone else do it for you.

 

 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Come trained, nourished, rested, and motivated and let me get you the rest of the way there.

 

 

Anything else you’d like to share?

Relax and don’t forget to take it easy the last week before your race.

 

 

 

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I’m a board member of a local community bike repair shop.  It’s humbling repairing the primary means some folks get to work.
