A quotation you like…

“The difference between an ordeal and an adventure is attitude”


Why do you run?


Running allows me to enjoy the outdoors no matter where I am while challenging myself or connecting with others!

Describe your best marathon memory.


High-fiving and supporting fellow runners that I met that morning at the start line (and in the long line for the porta-potty) along the Tobacco Road Marathon course

Why do you pace?


I want to cheer on others as they meet their own goals, be it a first-time finish, a PR, or simply a fun endeavor.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


This is my first season of pacing – I can’t wait to make a ton of memories!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Someone should run in my pace group if they want support while reaching a hard-earned goal. If you might need some energy to pull from 10 miles in – I’ve got plenty to share!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Always pack snacks! Whether you like gummies, mashed potatoes or gels, I’m a big believer in fueling your body as you go and making sure your snacks taste great.
