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.
