Describe your best marathon memory.

 

Running the 2010 Midnight Marathon in Bangalore India after just moving there. I was extremely sick with bronchitis and the course was a painful 4.2K loop. However, 25 new co-workers were running 5k relays on the same course with me with all night. Never had I been surrounded with such excitement at a race.

Why do you pace?

 

All of us start the race to finish. If I can help another runner achieve their goal, I am blessed.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

 

Helping 3 buddies through their first 22 miler before their first Marathon. One listened and stayed with me the whole run but the other two took off. The wise one and I passed the other two at mile 20 like they were still….Great pace teaching day. All 3 had a successful marathon.

Why should someone run in your pace group?

 

We will finish and it will be sweet!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

 

Bring your one thing. The one thing that gets you through the hard days that you can hold on to.

Also pack some good jokes and best somewhat true stories.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Hebrews 12:1
