How did you get into running?

I began running when I was 9 years old because my dad would go for runs and I just had to tag along. Eventually I got better at it.

What inspired you to volunteer as a pacer?

I became a pacer to help others meet their goals. I especially enjoy running on the Thursday night fun runs and thought by becoming a pacer I could give back to the running community ARC has created.
