A quotation you like…



Why do you run?


It’s the most natural form of exercise!

Describe your best marathon memory.


Mt. Charleston 2017. Right around mile 17 running on an endlessly straight road and suddenly realizing just how happy I felt. Nothing to do but keep the legs turning. Just an open mind and an open road. There is no better place.

Why do you pace?


Fame and Glory! Just kidding, I just enjoy the running community and I like being there for people at mile 22 when the marathon stops being a feat of strength and becomes a battle of the mind.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Huntsville, UT, 2018. I got to pace the 3:30 group so it was great to see so many women get their BQ’s.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I run the course. Even splits are for flat courses, most marathons require an even effort strategy to perform well. I’ll break the wind for you when it gets tough.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Double knot your shoes and hang on!

Anything else you’d like to share?

The faster you go, the more endogenous opioids you get. Descending pain inhibition is the real deal.
