A quotation you like…

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it” – Robin Williams


Why do you run?


My fondest memories – and best friendships – all come from running. There’s no better way to explore a new city. Running brings people together.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Crossing the line at Richmond in 2014, my first marathon. I barely made it in one piece. Aside from all the pain I felt amazing!

Why do you pace?


Helping people meet their goals is an incredible feeling – and it’s great to see people catch the running bug!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Running with first time marathoners at the CD City Sports Marathon Training group – meeting new people from all walks of life and helping them prepare for the big 26.2.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I like to remind people that running is FUN. If we aren’t having fun, we’re doing it wrong. I keep my runs lighthearted, but serious enough that everyone walks away with a special memory.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Goals are great, but they are only numbers. If you make it to race day, you’re already a winner.

Anything else you’d like to share?


Can’t wait for Space Coast!

What philanthropic activities do you have?


I just ran the Marine Corps Marathon for St. Jude Children’s hospital – a truly wonderful organization that is worth every penny of support you can spare.
