Personal goals

Have fun, laugh once in a while











Why do you run?


Personal challenge, meet great people, because I love it


Describe your best marathon memory.


Ultra marathon…….Completing the last mile of the Badwater ultra marathon with my crew.  It just goes to show you that nothing is impossible when you have the support of some great people.  Thanks Kelly, Scott, Judy, Lou, Tony, Andy, Val and John    .


Why do you pace?


You meet a lot of great people.  It is always fun helping people achieve their running goals.


Tell us your best pacing experience.


Seeing runners pick up the pace around mile 24 when they realize their goal is within reach. 


Why should someone run in your pace group?


Because I am a lonely guy and I need the company.


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Don’t put so much pressure on yourself that running is no longer fun.  Once it becomes work, it is no longer fun.


Anything else you’d like to share?

Never think you can’t do something.  Once you think you can’t, you can’t.



What philanthropic activities do you have?

For Badwater 2010 we (Scott Finnell and I) are raising money for the Pressely Ridge.
