Why do you run?


Running literally saved my life, when I had no hope, no joy, no love, I could always go running and sadly for a long time in my life it was the only thing that I was proud of.

Describe your best marathon memory.


My very first marathon, I was morbidly obese, very little training, and a fractured foot, I was determined to not quit, not give up on myself like I have for my entire life.  That day it took me 7:17.00 for me to prove to myself that I can do hard things

Why do you pace?


It is a chance for me to give back, running is such a selfish sport unless you are a pace setter, then you are there to help others reach their goal, to help them reach their dreams.  Plus I really like medals and T-shirts

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I have had a few opportunities to sweep a races and it’s the back of the pack, the first timers, the dreamers, those are the ones who stand out the most to me.  I had one young lady after a very long race say that because of me, she didn’t give up

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I love to talk and motivate people, To tell stories and to do my best to distract as runners find out what it means to run through the suck

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


You’ve done the training; you’ve put in the miles.  Today is race day, you’ve earned this day, now make sure you enjoy it!  Your medal is waiting for you at the finish line
