A quotation you like…

:”Though much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are, one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.” Lord Alfred Tennyson





Why do you run?


To see what it takes for me to fail.  I have not yet failed.



Describe your best marathon memory.


The first HM I finished after my back surgery was really special.  I didn’t know if I would run again, and when I crossed the finish line, setting a PR (at the time), I knelt on the ground and started sobbing.  All of the emotions I had felt over the several months prior to that run all came to me at once.  It was very powerful and overwhelming.  



Why do you pace?


It is very rewarding to help someone achieve a goal that they have set.



Tell us your best pacing experience.


Pacing the Detroit US Half Marathon was very fun.  I had a good group for most of the race but one girl stayed with me the whole time.  It was her first half marathon and she started struggling a little towards the end.  It was very fun to talk to her and keep her going. 



Why should someone run in your pace group?


You should run with me because I will find a way to entertain you, inform you, insult you, or whatever keeps you going!



Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Tips are greatly appreciated.  Thanks!  LOL!







What philanthropic activities do you have?

I raised a few bucks for the New England Aquarium in 2014 so I could run the Boston Marathon.  I also give urban children the chance to have a great high school education.
