Why do you run?
To stay healthy, clear my mind, and maintain the competitive spirit that I use every day in my life.

Why should someone run in your pace group?
I hit the target split time at each and every mile, provide guidance in the last few miles for the strong runners, and always stay with the slowest runner of the group that can finish within the target time.

Do you have any tips for runners about to join your group?
Be sure to grab a cup of water at each and every mile, even if the weather is cold and you feel you do not need it yet. I will remind you to do it all the way to the finish line.
