Describe your best marathon memory.


Indy Monumental 2014 I was with 3:05 pace group and saw a runner fall.  Felt bad.  He passed me @22M so I called out to him.  We both beat the 3:05 and he thanked me on Facebook. We both went to same high school a few years apart  and he’s still a member of Cornbelt Running Club and a Bix 7  regular.



Why do you pace?


To help others.  Sounds generic I know.  It’s nice to see runners reach their goals, not for me but for them.



Tell us your best pacing experience.


2014  Quad Cities Marathon. Paced 3:15 group.  It was hot hot hot that day. Saw a lot of great runners struggle. L



Why should someone run in your pace group?


I’ll be nervous like you. 26.2 is still the true test. A lot of great runners have a bad day.



Any tips for runners about to join your group?


No talking, save the O2 for the last 10k.



Anything else you’d like to share?

Adopt a greyhound, changed my life for the better.  We go on walks first then I run second.
