All I can say is that running makes me feel like I'm 29.

How did you get into running?

I got into running as a form of meditation, to release the stress of carrying a full load and working (2) jobs while working on my Bachelor’s Degree. Later I started using it to raise funds for various charities.

What inspired you to volunteer as a pacer?

The best part of pacing for ARC, is meeting new people who have the same love for the sport. And who knows like Trisha I might meet my soul mate.

Greatest running achievement

My greatest running achievement was a 30 minute PR, in 2010.
