Why do you pace?


Pacing is a great way to relieve stress on runners who are trying to achieve a specific goal and can rely on pacers to get them across the finish line. Also, as a pacer, it is rewarding to help runners achieve their goal.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I ran the hot chocolate 15k with some pacers and it was the best experience because I got to focus on running without stressing about my time.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


After my experience running with pacers, I will ensure that runners in my pacing group will have the same level of stress relief and can focus on achieving their race time.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


I would recommend to not go out too fast even if they are feeling good in the beginning, take advantage of the water stops, and have fun running

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I help James with running the Westchase Irish 31 Run Club every Wednesday and I love to help people achieve their fitness and nutrition goals.
