Why do you run?
Started running as a way to relieve stress, it helped me lose 40 pounds and has helped me work through some very, very difficult times in my life (divorce, military moves, etc).

Why should someone run in your pace group?
I tell really good dad jokes, and I promise I will help anyone through any lows in the race by being a good motivator and maintaining my· own positive attitude. I'll remind my group to keep going, that no one ever drowned in their own sweat, and how awesome they'll feel when they cross the finish line and get their medal.

Do you have any tips for runners about to join your group?
Train safe! Have fun! It isn't always about pace and PRs, sometimes you have a bad day running, but you gotta grind it out anyways.
