Why do you run?
I run to completely de-stress myself. It helps me to deal with everyday stresses plus it's a great way to get together with friends.

Why should someone run in your pace group?
Someone should run in my pace group because I like to keep it fun and have lots of energy. I try to keep everyone pumped up until the very end of the race. Plus,sometimes I sing sounds out loud.

Just make sure to be hydrated and ready for the heat.
