Pain is weakness leaving the body.


Why do you run?


I love the way it makes me feel after I get done with a run.

Describe your best marathon memory.


IL Marathon-Flat, fast course.  Went in hoping to PR my last marathon which I did by a surprisingly 34 minutes and after hitting the wall at mile 22.  Went home to look up Boston qualifying time (which I had no intention of qualifying) and I was surprisingly 5 minutes off from qualifying.

Why do you pace?


It’s great to help other runners achieve their goals.  If I can get them across the finish line I feel like my job was done and accomplishments and great memories were made.

Tell us your best pacing experience.


It was a fun experience and we finished within 30 seconds early of our pacing time.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I am a positive, happy person and will do my best to encourage the runners to keep going.

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


I run a consistent pace throughout the entire run but if I have a group that has other suggestions we can alter the run if needed (ex. run/walk).

Anything else you’d like to share?

Your race, your pace, one mile at a time.  Stay strong and don’t ever give up!
