A quotation you like…

The harder you work, the luckier you get


Why do you run?


I always feel better during and after a run. I’ve met some of my closest friends though my running club.

Describe your best marathon memory.


My family met me along the Myrtle Beach Marathon. My wife, children, nephew, and nieces were holding signs for me.

Why do you pace?


Very few things are better than helping someone achieve a difficult goal. It gives me a chance to give back to the sport that has been so great to me.

Tell us your best pacing experience.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’ll keep them entertained, singing songs, talking about running, past and future races. We’ll stay on pace the whole time, though.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


We’ll run the tangents as much as possible. No reason to run more miles than we have to on race day.

Anything else you’d like to share?

I really enjoy competing in ultramarathons


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I volunteer for my son’s track team and I participate in the Relay for Life each year at my local high school. I support my wife’s yearly participate in the Avon Walk.
