A quotation you like…

Everyday you’re trying to find more of what you’re capable of – and that’s the big question. What are you capable of?” ~David Goggins

Why do you run?

Running for me is a combination of living a healthy lifestyle, pushing myself, seeing what I’m capable of, and enjoying scenic views (and running with others for 3+ hours in the woods is a bonus)

Describe your best marathon memory.

During my first marathon, I was standing in the crowd of runners for waiting for the race to begin. It’s such a special environment when you can look around and see people of all different ages, races, sizes, etc. all together trying to achieve the same goal as you. That made me truly appreciate the running community and what running means for so many people.

Why do you pace?

My mission in life is to help others become the best version of themselves. Pacing allows me that opportunity through an activity that I love. Seeing others succeed gives me great satisfaction

Tell us your best pacing experience.

Last year, I paced my Fiancée to help her achieve her personal best time!

Why should someone run in your pace group?

Whatever your goal is, I hope to help you achieve it. A personal best? Maintenance run in an event format? Just go out and see what happens? I’m here to help any and all goals in this pace group. Most importantly, we’ll have fun doing it. If you need stories to distract you, I can do that. If you need constant verbal motivation, I can do that as well.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

The best marathons that I’ve run happen when I go in with zero expectations. When I go in thinking, “I’ve trained hard, I have a goal in mind, but I’m going to do the best I can”, the outcome is always better than if I convince myself that I need to hit a certain pace. A clear and positive mindset entering the race is as important as the physical training you’ve put in!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I ran my first 100-mile race in April of 2022! C&O Canal in Knoxville MD with a time of 24 hours, 44 minutes

What philanthropic activities do you have?

Throughout my 4 years at Penn State, I participated in Penn State’s THON which is a 46-hour dance marathon to raise money for pediatric cancer. I was a captain for 2 years, leading a committee of 40 students in fundraising efforts and preparation for a successful THON weekend.
