Why do you run?


So many reasons…friends, fitness, peace of mind, structure…at this point I’ve been doing it so long, I don’t know what I would do without it.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Finishing my first marathon, and thinking, “I want to do that again!”

Why do you pace?


I love helping others achieve their goals – I’m more excited to see a friend get a PR than to get one myself. Plus…pacing is all the fun of running, without any of the stress of competing : )
