A quotation you like…

No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch. * Doubt kills more dreams than failure every will.


Why do you run?


It gives me the freedom to explore my own personal boundaries and keeps me in good shape.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Being greeted by raging fans throughout but especially at the finish of the 2014 Boston Marathon one year after having finished the 2013 Boston Marathon and witnessing the bombs go off around the corner from the finish.

Why do you pace?


To share my experience and help other runners achieve their goals.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Despite challenges, being there for a fellow runner when the going got tough and witnessing a new Boston qualifier.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am calm and collected throughout the race. I am approachable. There isn’t anything you can’t ask me throughout the race.  I will encourage you to pursue your maximum potential.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Relax and have fun.  Don’t let all of the technicalities of the race trap you. In the end it’s your race and you want to take control of it. I’m going to be there to let you forget about your pace and hopefully my company will help you forget about one or two of those harder miles.
