A quotation you like…

“Life is a storm my young friend, you will bask in the sunlight one moment and be shattered on the rocks the next.  What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.  You must look into the storm as you shout:  Do your worst for I will do mine…”  Edmond Dantes “Count of Monte Cristo”

Why do you run?


I enjoy being outdoors.  I love how I feel during and after.  It keeps me grounded and I manage to get back to the day-to-day with a better outlook after I run.

Describe your best marathon memory.


My favorite is when people ask what my first marathon was.  It was supposed to be Ogden Half.  The week I was supposed to do 20 miles, my training partner was out of town.  Another friend called and said they couldn’t use their SLC Marathon bib the next morning and asked if I would like it.  So, the SLC Marathon technically is my first marathon.  I used it as my training run and ran with pacers for the majority of the race!

Why do you pace?


I love being able to give back to the running community.  I enjoy meeting people who run with me and hearing their stories and their “whys” for running. 

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I’d have to say it was when I was at a race, but not as an official pacer.  My friend that I train with was going into the race with a lot of uncertainties.  She wasn’t sure if she could finish in a time that she wanted.  We do run at different paces so we don’t run together when we race.  However; this race I told her I’d stay with her and keep her on pace to finish.  I told her stories, sang, danced.  Every time she wanted to stop I found ways to keep her going. 

I receive so much joy from helping strangers that I pace at all the races.  The joy in seeing Tobi, who I have run with multiple times a week for over 10 years, reach her goal.. That took my joy to a whole other level. 

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I will be there to cheer you on and help you reach your goals.  I will encourage you to find that extra grit as we near the finish line and encourage you to go faster.  I love to chat and look forward to hearing your stories.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Follow your training plan and make sure you train with whatever foods/liquids you plan to use for your race.  Most importantly, HAVE FUN!  Enjoy the journey you are on and find joy in your accomplishment.
