Coach / Pacer Bio

Background

I am a lifelong runner and have found a love for both running and coaching. During 5ks I always like to talk about when someone is going to sign up for the marathon. During the marathon, I always find out when they are going to sign up for a 50k. (I think you see a pattern).

I believe that running transforms people’s lives for the better of everyone including yourself.

I like to race in other countries and was particularly impressed by a half marathon pacer in India who paced the 2-hour group barefoot.

I am coaching the MiMS VOA southside team for 2021 and have paced the team on all the above distances.

I have paced 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, and Marathon.
