A quotation you like…

We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from it. –William Osler


Why do you run?


For the enjoyment and camaraderie.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Crossing the bridge at mile 13 of the Big Sur Marathon. The view was spectacular and there was a baby grand piano playing beautiful music.

Why do you pace?


To share the experience of doing something great with fascinating people.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Finishing a marathon with new friends who are completing their first marathon is a magical experience, one that is hard to forget.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I enjoy sharing and listening to stories which make the time go by quickly, and turn a good race into a magnificent one.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Eat early the evening prior to race day so you are more likely to go to the bathroom before the start line. Also, don’t try anything new leading up to the race, including your diet – eat what works for your body. An upset stomach or frequent bathroom breaks can make or break a race experience.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Get to know your pacer, whoever they might be.  I find marathon pacers have amazing stories to share from their varied racing experiences.


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I am interested in medical volunteerism for those who need it most. In Atlanta, there is a great need for better healthcare among the homeless, so I volunteer at a homeless shelter at least once a month.
