Why do you pace?


I am new to group pacing but have served as a guide for visually impaired runners numerous times. I enjoy helping others achieve their goal.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


While not technically a “pacing experience” …My very first marathon, I was working with a visually impaired runner from a local running club.  Only weeks prior to the Chicago Marathon in 2011 he was seeking out a guide to help. Having never ran a full marathon and not knowing what I was getting into I eagerly volunteered. We ended up running a 4:50 marathon which was at that point a new P.R. for him as well as helping him qualify for the Boston Marathon for his first time.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Whether you are running your first and 15th marathon, I will help you achieve your race day goals

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Believe in yourself and believe in your training. Stay present and you can achieve more than you imagine.




What philanthropic activities do you have?

I enjoy working with visually impaired athletes and other disabled athletes.  I have volunteered with multiple organizations which afford these athletes the opportunities to run and participate in triathlon.
