Favorite Marathon: I love running the Nike Women’s Marathon for the beautiful course & the awesome energy from the spectators. The firemen in the tuxedos at the finish line with the little blue Tiffany boxes on silver platters don’t suck either.
Other pacing experiences: 2010 Nike Women’s Marathon, 2011 & 2012 Modesto Marathon, 2012 Western Pacific Marathon, 2012 Pleasanton Half Marathon, 2012 Javelina Jundred 100 Miler (40 miles).

Advice for my pace group: Relax, stay positive & let me do all of the work. I will be running even splits & will briefly walk through every aid station. If you fall off the back of the group, don’t waste your energy to try to sprint to catch up, just keep my pace sign in sight & slowly catch up.
