What are you reading now?

This varies each week – so let’s talk about it while we run!

Who do you train with?

My 2 year old spends quite a bit of time in his running stroller while I train.  I also train a lot with a handful of co-workers who are also in constant marathon training.

Personal goals

To run a sub 3:40 marathon, to raise as much money as possible for the Catch A Lift Fund, and to help as many people as possible to fall in love with the sport of runnning



A quotation you like…

It doesn’t matter how fast or how slow you go, a mile is still a mile!


Why do you run?


My answer for this is incredibly long – perhaps we can talk about it at mile 20?

Describe your best marathon memory.


Over 5 months I trained with my friend/colleague Elisa for her to complete her first marathon, my favorite memory is of seeing how ecstatic she was when she crossed the marathon finish line for the first time!

Why do you pace?


I LOVE being a part of something that helps others achieve their goals.  My favorite memories are not those where I performed at my best, but rather when I had the joy of aiding others in accomplishing their personal bests.



Why should someone run in your pace group?


I have been in your shoes – hours, days, weeks, months, and even years of training to try to meet a goal.  I know what it’s like, and the whole reason that I pace is to help you achieve your goal!  We’ll run, we’ll talk, I’ll help you keep your mind off of the wall at mile 22, and we’ll have a fun time all the way to the finish line.  After all, if it’s not fun, why do it?

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Trust your training, after all, race day is just a victory lap for all of that hard work you’ve been putting in.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Thank you for letting me be a part of your big moment!  Amy recognizes that the hardest part of every run is lacing up your shoes. While running, feel free to ask questions about running, tips, and tricks! Or feel free to chat about whatever is on your mind!
