A quotation you like…

The miracle isn’t that I finished, the miracle is that I had the courage to start!


Why do you run?


Because I can!  I lack hand/eye coordination and found the only athletic activity I can safely participate in is running!

Describe your best marathon memory.


New York City...the crowds…the excitement, the support felt like (what I imagine) a rock star feels like!

Why do you pace?


I love helping others achieve their goals….it’s a way for me to give back to a sport that I truly love!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Hands down, pacing my daughter in her first half marathon!

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I like to have fun and want anyone running with me to have fun too!  Am encouraging, supportive but will tell you to run through anything you think you can’t.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


You will finish....and you will be glad you did what you might have thought you couldn’t. 

Believe you can and you can!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I’m also a race director in the Tampa Bay area.  I love to run and love to share in the experience of runners and walkers that want to achieve their goal of doing something they didn’t think they could do!


What philanthropic activities do you have?

I am a certified running coach and volunteer allot of hours in helping others pursue their goals.
