Describe your best marathon memory.


Breaking 3 hours at Grandma’s.  There were no chips then so I was sprinting at the end before the clock above the line reached 3:00:00.  I was so excited afterward I was jumping around.  Really wasn’t sore until the next day and then I really hurt..


Why do you pace?


To give back to the sport.  I enjoy the banter among the running pack.  Its exciting to pace someone thru to their BQ or PR.  Very rewarding..


Tell us your best pacing experience.


Have paced 1 time – Stillwater Marathon 2009.  Had 4 runners with me at the end.  Goal was 3:30.  I finished in 3:29:58 – 2 guys were ahead of me and 2 runners fell slightly behind. 


Why should someone run in your pace group?


Support and fun.  The miles really fly by when you are with a large group.


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Bring your hardhat and lunch pail.  We are going to work and going to achieve your goal.  Seriously – we’ll have fun.
