A quotation you like…


To see you must open your eyes.

Why do you run?

Running is fun, it’s a great way to meet people and to sweat!

Describe your best marathon memory.

My best (ultra) marathon memory is from 2011 when I came across the finish line first for the Nashville Ultra 60K. I was so excited to have won the race as my legs hurt so bad during the race!

Why do you pace?

I love running and like to help others reach their goals.. oh and did I mention I love running?!

Tell us your best pacing experience.

In April 2016, I paced one of my good friends to a sub-4 marathon. He wanted to run just under 4 hours, so we ran, had a good time and came in right at 3:58:20. It was a perfect day!

Why should someone run in your pace group?

If people want encouragement, jokes, laughter and entertainment while running (to distract them from what’s going on with the marathon) then they should run with me.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

Save some fuel for the back half! It’s not good to go out too fast and blow your race to smitherines.

Anything else you’d like to share?

My wife and I live in a tiny house that we built!

What philanthropic activities do you have?

Donating time to help out with local races and run clubs.
