A quotation you like…

Only those who will risk going too far find out how far one can really go. T.S. Eliot


Why do you run?


I run because I want to, I love it and I can. There’s an endless amount of ways to challenge yourself in running.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Boston 2008, it was my second marathon and it’s still the best race I’ve ever had. The weather was perfect, I saw my family at 5 different mile markers, the crowd was amazing and I felt good the entire way. I was aiming to do just as good as I had at my first marathon but ended up PRing by 13 minutes.

Why do you pace?


There’s really no better feeling than helping someone achieve a hard earned goal.



Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’m definitely a talker on runs so will have no problem keeping you distracted from dwelling on how many more miles are left to run. I’ve had so many fun marathon experiences I want to make sure others do as well.





What philanthropic activities do you have?

I lead a run group with another friend for Icebreaker two nights a week.
