A quotation you like…

“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.”

-          Dean Karnazes


Why do you run?


I run to set goals and break them, to meet new people, to drive success in other areas of my life, to give me time to think, it gives me a chance to explore unchartertered territory.  I run to be healthy, relieve stress, to feel like a kid again, and ultimately to test my body to its limits.  You would be very surprised at what the human body is capable of!

Describe your best marathon memory.


My best marathon memory is certainly my first marathon at the RnR Denver Marathon in 2009.  My Step Mom ran the half marathon that ended at the same finish line as the full.  I really struggled the last mile of the race and she was waiting there for me at mile 25.5 to run with me and finish the race together.  It was truly a moment I will never forget.

Why do you pace?


I love pacing other runners to get to know more runners in the community and to help encourage others that you can achieve your goals if you set your mind to it and over come mental barriers.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I helped pace my friend in his first marathon at the 26.2 w/ Donna Marathon in which I ran for my Grand Mother.  He was very doubtful he could run the race at all, and to his surprise h e ran a sub 4 marathon!  Seeing the accomplishment and how happy it made him certainly made me realize this is something I want to do for more runners in our community.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Running in my pace group is a good time because I am relaxed and am there to have fun and really enjoy the race.  I always love to get to know  many different runners from different backgrounds and to find what motivates them to get out there and pound the pavement.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Relax! I can’t say it enough, enjoy the atmosphere and the fact that you have put in all the hard work to the starting line.  Trust your training, and relish in the accomplishment you are about to achieve and hopefully get that PR you’ve been training for!

Anything else you’d like to share?

Trance music is a big passion of mine and I always love running to it, I would love to hear about others taste in music and chat about different music styles while we are out there running!


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I routinely volunteer for Disney VoluntEARs and Give Kids the World.
