A quotation you like…

You never conquer a mountain. You stand on the summit a few brief minutes and then the wind blows away your footprints.


Why do you run?


It’s an efficient way to stay fit.

Describe your best marathon memory.


The last 3 miles of my first marathon. I could sense that despite fatigue, I wasn’t going to hit a wall, and I had enough in the tank to hold pace and run faster than I expected.

Why do you pace?


It’s as good a way to spend a weekend as anything else.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Being approached and told by runners that running with my pace group was helpful to them.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


You won’t have to think about hitting your spits. I will do it for you, and I will do it accurately.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Don’t worry about the watch. Pay attention to how you feel. That’s the only way you learn to race.
