I live by the green triangle.  What’s good for my body is good for the environment is good for my wallet.



A quotation you like…

“We’re Iowans.  We don’t expect anyone to solve our problems; we’ll fight our own battles.”


Why do you run?


I run because I always have. For me, it is the most natural thing to do.

Describe your best marathon memory.


My best marathon memory was helping my friend Jessica and her husband Seth qualify for Boston on successive weekends.

Why do you pace?


I pace to actively help others achieve their goals.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Running in a pace group turns the race into more of a team sport. You’re in a group with like-minded individuals striving for the same goal.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Just relax and let me do all the thinking.
