A quotation you like…

“Every man dies, but not every man really lives.”-William Wallace of Scotland (Braveheart)


Why do you run?


I run because it is my personal release from the stressors of life.  I run for my spiritual, mental, and physical well-being…Anima Sana In Corpore Sano.

Describe your best marathon memory.


As I was approaching the 23rd mile mark during the 2011 Atlantic City Marathon I saw my boyfriend running up ahead of me on the boardwalk.  He was surprised to see me when I caught up to him as I was on my way to setting a PR.  He ran right by my side for the last 3 miles and encouraged me the whole way!

Why do you pace?


I have a passion for motivating people and helping them achieve their dreams!  I am a ball full of energy and love meeting people from all over the world and hearing their personal stories.  Pacing is an excellent avenue for me to support, inspire, and galvanize others to accomplish their best!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I really enjoyed the pacing group at the 2011 Yuengling Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach.  The winds were terrible that day but the focus, camaraderie, and uplifting spirit of the group made me feel as if my feet had wings throughout the entire race.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Racing is FUN!  My positivism is contagious and I would hope it transfers to my group!  I love to chat throughout the 26.2 miles and keep my company upbeat.  Stick with me and we will hit our mark at the Finish Line!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


RELAX!  You have put hard work and effort into your training…now comes the FUN part!  Fuel your body properly the week before the race, hydrate, get adequate sleep, and be patient!  Marathon day is a celebratory experience-let us enjoy the 26.2 mile journey together!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I have been competing in pageants for 7 years!  I was first runner-up to Miss Nevada (Miss America Organization) in 2010.  I currently hold the title of Miss Earth District of Columbia!  All of my running helps me to stay in shape for the swimsuit competition year-round! ;-)


What philanthropic activities do you have?

Volunteer for The Solace Tree Organization-work with children, teens, and families who have lost a loved one.
