To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. - Steve Prefontaine

Why do you run?


Most days, I come out of a run feeling 10x better than I did going in.  

Describe your best marathon memory.


Boston 2009.   I worked hard to achieve this 20+ year personal goal and was able to share the experience with a group of great friends/training partners.     

Why do you pace?


I’ve been running for 30 years, primarily focused on personal achievement.   It is time to give back to the running community by helping others reach their personal goals.        

Tell us your best pacing experience.


I co-paced in 2012 and we had a great group of runners joining our 3:25 pace group.   I had an opportunity to get to know a number of them throughout the race and seeing them reach their goal was pretty cool.    

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’m consistent and will get you to your goal time with some time to spare.   I have coaching experience at various levels and know how to encourage people to reach their potential without being over the top.   

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Be disciplined with your training plan, encourage pace group “teammates” during the race, be patient and relaxed early on, and prepare to dig deep the final miles.   

Anything else you’d like to share?

Good luck with training!
