I started running in the Marine Corps and have been running for over 30 years. I have completed several ultra trail races, half marathons and full marathons across the country. I have a personal goal of completing a marathon in each state. My most rewarding running experiences have been when I am pacing in marathons and half marathons to help others achieve their personal goals. It is very important to me to give back to the running community and help others obtain goals they have set out to obtain. My experiences as a pacer include pacing in the Shamrock Marathon many times, Chicago Marathon twice and the New Jersey Marathon. I am known for carrying a Red Solo Cup during races which becomes a conversation piece and invites many questions from other runners. I am looking forward to being part of the Running Etc Ambassador TEAM.
