A quotation you like...

“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good deed by stealthy and have it found out by accident.”  “You have a choice.  You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face.”

Why do you run?

Incredible benefits to the body, mind and spirit are plentiful. Even a short run leaves me energized.

Describe your best marathon memory.

The best memoires of a marathon are the ones I had to dig deep to finish the distance.

Why do you pace?

Most rewarding is having a hand assisting others to reach their goals. I love doing this!

Tell us your best pacing experience.

Hearing the stories of what motivates one to run are always inspiring. Knowing I had a chance to share in their day is the absolute best!

Why should someone run in your pace group?

The joy of reaching the finish line is wonderful especially when shared having fun along the journey.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

We will run a consistent pace with short walk breaks at the aid stations. Only thing I require.... A SMILE as you run to that finish line!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I am mom to 3 fabulous children. I have run a marathon in every state. My longest race was a 500K. I was one of the top 3 women to have run over 70 marathons in a single year. I’m always seeking new adventures.

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I continue to embrace the YMCA commitment giving back in volunteer roles
