A quotation you like…


Never be afraid to try something new. Remember a lone amateur built the arc, a group of professionals built the Titanic.

Why do you run?


This is a tough question…On one hand I feel lucky that I am healthy and able to run, while others I know are not able to. On the other hand I just like to see what I can do and also find it a great way to explore new places.  And on another hand that I do not have, I love meeting new people and running is a great way to do that.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Still has to be my first.....Never in a million years did I think I could run one, but put the time and training in and made it happen. Haven’t looked back and have been running ever since.

Why do you pace?


I love to see people achieve their goals!

Tell us your best pacing experience.


Being with my good friend as she finished her first 50 miler.

Why should someone run in your pace group?


I hope I cannot only help you achieve a marathon finish, but make it fun too!

Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Open communication! Just tell me how you are feeling and what’s going on and we will work it out.
