Mentor Info

15 March 2011

ARRC is looking for leaders to volunteer to be a mentor/pace leader!

Mentors should have a positive attitude and set an example for members by following the ARRC “Rules”.  ARRC will cover your membership fee and any costs associated with Red Cross First Aid and CPR training.  In return we ask that you maintain the following responsibilities:

  • Run/walk at various paces periodically to meet all members of your group
  • Participate and lead group in warm-ups before run/walk
  • Be available and willing to answer questions from members
  • Carry a cell phone on group runs in case of emergency
  • Attend periodic mentor meetings (generally 10-15 minutes prior to group runs)
  • Submit bio and photo for posting on website
  • Join the ARRC-Mentors Yahoo group for special communication needs

If you are interested in becoming an mentor or pace leader for ARRC, please contact a member of the Board of Directors, indicating your pace group and program (marathon, half marathon, fitness).

Disclaimer: Unless noted otherwise and/or mentor is a certified coach, please acknowledge that mentors are not certified and any advice, especially medical or nutrition related, are simply the opinions of the mentor and absolutely does not eliminate the need to follow up with a doctor or other medical expert, especially in the case of injuries!

Town of residence:    Fairfax, VA
Pace/color group:    Yellow Line (half marathon)
Years/season with ARRC:    spring/summer 2007
How did you learn of ARRC:    can’t remember???
Occupation:    Web Engineer / Technical Manager
Brief running history:   
I started running in 2001 when a soccer teammate talked me into giving triathlon a try, and have been hooked ever since! I completed my first marathon in 2007 (Portland Marathon) after training with ARRC all summer. I have done 2 full marathons but still prefer triathlon and completed my first long distance race (Redman 70.3) in 2008. I use run/walk intervals for my long runs and am looking forward to training for 2 more half iron distance races in 2011!
Favorite running experience:   
I really hate waking up early, but do love running through the city and watching the sun come up over the Potomac before the crowds hit the streets.
Favorite race:    answer
Favorite race medal:    hmm.. probably Annapolis triathlon with all the crabs!
Favorite race shirt:    answer
What keeps you motivated:   
Love that feeling you get when crossing a finish line… and being back of the pack you meet the most interesting people out on the trails and in races!
Advice to newbies:   
Take it slow and HAVE FUN — it’s not worth it if you’re not enjoying it
What do you do when you’re not running:   
Cheering on the Washington Caps or Baltimore Ravens, or hanging out at a Virginia winery!
Notes of Interest:   
Certified RRCA Coach, training for Florida 70.3 in May and Rev3 Cedar Point Half Iron Distance race in September!
