Describe your best marathon memory.


I will always remember my first one in 2013 fondly- How I registered it the night of my fun first 5k race. How excitedly I dashed out like a rabbit and made the first mile the fastest one of all 26 miles. How my family and friends cheered for me in Shadyside.  How I enjoyed the energy of the spectators. How I bonked and walked and cried at mile 22. How proud when I finished with my loved one side by side. How I had to be assisted in and out of the car for the next week. How I could not stop talking about it for the next month…Ahhh. Beautiful first time!!

Why do you pace?


To share the passion, to help others , to experience more races and festivities

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’d like to think that my positive outlook, encouraging and enthusiastic attitude, calm,  sincere and fun personality would make me a great pacer

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Dig deeper, relax, be in your body and be with your breathing

Anything else you’d like to share?

You can do it!!
