A quotation you like…

“It hurts up to a point and then doesn’t get any worse.”


Why do you run?


Sanity, peace, carpe diem, health, de-stresser.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Best marathon memories are all pacing. Leading groups through the last miles and passing people and convincing the runners that they really can do it.

Why do you pace?


Running has given me so much life. Pacing is my way to give back to the sport and to others.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Pacing a group of 6 first timers from start to finish at a marathon in Nebraska. Very exhilarating and exciting!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


If they stick with me, I WILL get them to the finish line in time. My groups are full of fun and laughter!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


We will run smart and not start out too fast.

Anything else you’d like to share?



What philanthropic activities do you have?

My career is kind of my way of serving the community – providing shelter and stable housing for families experiencing homelessness. I also seek to be a good neighbor on the most local level – to my neighbors on my street.
