Why do you run?


I can’t imagine not running!  It is the best way to start the day and I always feel better after a run.  I also run so I can eat chocolate.  J

Describe your best marathon memory.

1. Turning down Boylston street on my first Boston marathon.  What an amazing experience!

2. Completing the Pikes Peak Marathon – one of the hardest things I have ever done.  Bonus: I beat my boyfriend! 

Why do you pace?


I would like to help people achieve their goals. 

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I ran with a pacer during the All-American Marathon at Ft Bragg, NC.  He was awesome!  He kept me motivated and on track when I needed it.  I would like to be that person for others.   

Why should someone run in your pace group?


Running with a pacer means there is one less thing you have to worry about during the race.  It is less stress and also more fun to run in a group. 

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Enjoy the journey!  Relax and trust your training.
