First Marathon: Chicago Marathon 1979. I now have run over 100 marathons, including New York, Honolulu and Boston.

Suggestions to Your Pace Group: I run even splits. If you need to stop for aid or the bathroom, please catch up slowly so you can stay on pace. No need to sprint back to our group. I will maintain a 13:43 per mile pace.
