Describe your best marathon memory.


Once I ran a marathon in Iceland. Small one, 50 participants. The start was appointed at 9.00 AM. There was still no one at the starting point at 8:30 a.m. The organizers came 15 minutes before the starting time and said - run from here to the shore of ocean and back. We run to, drank a glass of water at the ocean shore and came back for a medal. Very simple and good.

Why do you pace?


I love to help people.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Beirut marathon in Lebanon, 2022.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I they can’t run faster and doesn’t want to run slower , they would run with me. 4.20 is a great achievement. I am very supportive and friendly.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


The best speed for a marathon is a speed you can run it.
