A quotation you like…

“Always borrow money from a pessimist. They won’t expect it back” Oscar Wilde

 

Why do you run?

 

I’m not sure.  I am sure I never want to stop and I enjoy every second that I’m doing it even if I don’t think so at that precise moment in time!

Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Every time I see my family on the course

Why do you pace?

 

I love giving back to the running community that I love soooo much!  I have come to realize that it is much more rewarding to help others reach their goals than it often is in reaching my own.  Too often push people to achieve what they didn’t think was possible and help them grow is priceless!  Being there and a part of something that many people feel is so emotional is exceptionally rewarding! 

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Pacing my 61 yr old runner at the VT 100 race for 54 miles to a sub 27 hr finish and a 3rd place age group win

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

My pace group no matter how fast we are going is the party pace!  We will hoot and holler, laugh and joke our way to the finish line.  When we are done you’ll want to turn around and run back to the start to do it again because it was so much fun!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Trust in yourself and your training!  Keep moving forward and we will get there together!
