Sharon

Pace Team Leader

Sharon joined the team in 2003 with 18 marathons and will run her 100th marathon in 2012. Despite having broken her arm six weeks earlier, she set a 3-minute personal best at the 2011 Ironman World Triathlon Championship in Kona, Hawaii, her third Ironman. That’s almost as exciting as the time she ran a half marathon in a Guatemalan jungle where the spectators threw lit firecrackers at the runners, or past armed guards on a highway at 13,000 foot elevation in La Paz, Bolivia.

Sharon brings an upbeat approach to helping everyday runners reach their marathon goals. A military veteran (specialty: comedy cadence-calling) and former Peace Corps volunteer to Bolivia, Sharon is a public radio journalist who lives in Pasadena with her husband, Dave, a stand-up comic, and their dog Rosie.
