A quotation you like…

“I will beat her. I will train harder.  I will eat cleaner. I know her weaknesses.  I know her strengths.  I’ve lost to her before, but not this time.  She is going down.  I have the advantage, because I knew her well.  She is the old me.”

Why do you run?


My natural stress reliever, I can get lost in thought, I love the individual accomplishment, it is liberating

Describe your best marathon memory.


Right when the going got tough, my son popped out behind a tree and surprised me and ran the last 3 miles by my side

Why do you pace?


I love helping others achieve their goals.  There were so many people there for me throughout the years coaching and cheering me on……now it’s time for me to give back and “pay it forward”
