Personal goals

I’d like to do a trail marathon






Why do you run?


I’ve never been able to sit still so running is a great outlet for me. 


Describe your best marathon memory.


Finishing Pikes Peak!  This marathon was definitely on my lifetime to-do list and I trained hard but the highest altitude I was able to train at was 2500 ft.  Rounding the corner to the finish shoot was the best feeling of personal accomplishment.


Why do you pace?


I coached a marathon training team for several years in Richmond and love helping other runners reach their goals- especially first timers.


Tell us your best pacing experience.


I’m a newbie although I’ve relied on pacers for many of my marathons, including my first time qualifying for Boston.


Why should someone run in your pace group?


The camaraderie of a pace group really keeps you going when the going gets tough.  I love helping others reach their running goals and we’ll have fun along the way!


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


I love talking with other runners and sharing our running experiences and stories along the route- it makes the time fly by!


Anything else you’d like to share?

Marathon race day is like Christmas to me- I love to share that enthusiasm!



What philanthropic activities do you have?

I volunteer with Girls on the Run, support Stray Rescue, the Humane Society, am involved with the United Way.
