Why do you run?


I run for fitness, to surround myself with positive people, for the obvious social connections, and to serve as an example for my son.

Describe your best marathon memory.


I have many! Running up Heartbreak Hill (Boston Marathon, 2014) and having a spectator tell me… “Meb won!” Running across the 59th St Bridge (NYC Marathon, 2017) and learning via text then announcing to everyone within earshot, “Shalane won!”

Why do you pace?


I enjoy helping others reach their goals, I have a knack for motivating other with logic, talking people through tough situations and employing humor as a distraction.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I have paced friends in races from 5k to marathons – the thanks I receive when we reach the finish line in the right amount of time is fantastic! People find me years later at other events and say, “You were my pacer and I got a great time that day!”

Why should someone run in your pace group?


If you want to enjoy your experience and cross the finish line with a smile and a goal accomplished ~ I’ll provide timely advice, encouragement and laughs for the 26.2 miles you’ve chosen to run.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


We are going to get the goal time and have fun doing it! Come with a willingness to give in proportion to what you’ve trained for and to grow as an athlete. Each race is either a PR or a lesson.
