4:55 Pace Leader
Hometown: Davis, CA, but now living in Seattle WA for graduate school
Number of Marathons:12
Marathon PR: 4:01
Favorite Marathon & Why: The Big Sur Marathon has got to be one of the most gorgeous marathons ever! It’s so surreal just to be running near crashing waves and to see such beauty at every turn.
Other Running Accomplishments: Every run is an accomplishment! I also had the privilege of coaching a couple half-marathon groups this past year. Helping people reach their goals while doing something I love is an amazing experience.
Other Pacing Experiences: Pacing a friend through the last 24 miles at AR 50, Davis Stampede Half-Marathon, 2012, Modesto Marathon 2012
Running advise to those joining my pace group: My goal is to keep us at a consistent pace. I will have us running at least 15-20 seconds faster per mile so that we can walk through the aid stations AND make sure we reach our goal time. I am not a huge chatter, but I will check in on you, distract you, maybe do a little dance or two if you want just to distract you and keep it fun!
