Personal goals? Keep running for as many years as possible.

Why do you run?
It makes me feel good about myself and I get to eat and drink whatever I want.

Why should someone run in your pace group?
I’ll get you to the finish with even pacing.

Do you have any tips for runners about to join your group?
I’ll be run/walking at 3/1 minute intervals. That equals a 10:24 run pace and a 16:00 walk pace. If you are running straight or your intervals are different don’t worry. We can leapfrog the whole time. I’ll do my best to be even until the finish, so just keep my sign in sight.
