A quotation you like…

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”


Why do you run?


I run to get away from work and daily demands of life. It’s a way of meditation for me.  

Describe your best marathon memory.


My first marathon, the virtual Virgin Money London Marathon in 2020, where I ran with the local running team.

Why do you pace?


I love running races and meeting new people.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


My first pacing experience with Deer Park half marathon was for 2:00 finish time. I finished in 1:58 and was glad to see a few runners in my pacing group pushing themselves to finish in a few minutes less than 2:00. A few runners gave kudos to me after the race.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


My typical pace is great for beginner marathon runners, and I can relate to them as my first marathon was only 2 years ago.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Focus on finishing one mile at a time.
