Why do you run?

I run to stay healthy, and to show the "younger"crowd that they can run for a long time and to motivate them.  I love the feeling after a training run.  even if you start tired, you finish feeling better than when you started.


Describe your best marathon memory.

All the supportive spectators.  Finishing my first with my wife coming out to join me at the finish line.  pacing my daughter to finish her first half marathon at the Country Music Marathon in Nashville.  Getting my training partner to finish her first marathon!


Why do you pace?

For the passion of the sport, and for the social camaraderie. It is an extreme joy to see the smiles on the finishers faces when we make out time…truly inspirational!
