A quotation you like…

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.” – Walt Whitman


Why do you run?


It’s a lifestyle choice.

Describe your best marathon memory.


I once told a guy, in French, that I wanted to finish in seven minutes. He scoffed and said, “Ha, bonne chance!” I was a bit taken aback by his sarcasm. Then I realized I forgot to translate the “per mile” aspect of that sentence. We were only at the 6th mile.

Why do you pace?


Something new. And because slower paces improve my recovery time.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’m pretty darn good at running at a consistent pace and I know a ton about form, nutrition, and workout strategies. But, we’ll most likely get off topic and end up solving much of the world’s greater mysteries.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


We might walk through a few water stops – best for the joints – but don’t worry we’ll hit our mark.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Looking forward to a beer and jambalaya post-race.


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I tutor math for high school students. Our future world leaders, you know.
