Why do you run?


I started running to be able to spend time with my husband.  Now I run for my alone time, my sanity and to catch up with my friends.  What better way to start your morning.


Describe your best marathon memory.


My first marathon was the Chicago marathon 2006.  It was a cold year and all my family was there to cheer me on.  My sister drove up from Michigan and my mom has made shirts for everyone to wear.  Just crossing the finish line and achieving that victory with my family around will always be special to me.


Why do you pace?


I love to help people achieve their goals and feel the sweet smell of victory as they cross the finish line.


Tell us your best pacing experience.


I enjoyed pacing the NYC marathon because of the variety of people you come in contact with
