A quotation you like…

 

Work hard today for the betterment of yourself tomorrow.

Why do you run?

 

I’m hooked. Trying to stay fit and continuing to work toward improving. Training for my first 50-miler too.

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Finishing in Columbus with a PR and qualifying for Boston. Felt like all the work involved from never running more than a few miles a three years earlier to putting together a good race with the result I wanted.

Why do you pace?

 

I love to run, I love to meet new people, and I have no problem talking. Having the opportunity to make new friends, help others achieve their goals, and have fun in the process are great reasons for me to pace.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

I have paced a few friends when they were running their first marathon or going for a PR and it’s great fun. When I’m able to help someone go out conservatively, run even splits, and accomplish what they set out to do I’m thrilled to be a part of that experience.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

Running with a group will help keep you accountable to your goal time, and letting me worry about the pace will free you mentally from worrying about your splits.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Get ready to have some fun. Stay relaxed and we’ll reach the finish together.
