Hi, and Welcome to Pace of Me!

I’m Jess, and I am so happy that you’re here. My site is a little bit (or a lot?!) of everything I love to do and the purpose behind it all.

I’ve been running marathons since the year 2000 (my first of 20 thus far was in Philadelphia when I was 23 years old!) – so I guess you could say that everything I do somehow circles back around to my love for the Run, and wanting to take the very best care of myself from the inside out, so that I can move and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle for as long as possible.

Running changed my life, and continues to, and has led me on a path towards helping others discover their own strength and possibilities through this wonderful sport. I have been coaching runners of all levels for the last 8 years. As someone who is very passionate about the way the body moves and the healing power of movement, I also teach PilatesĀ in Raleigh, NC a few days a week and love working with my clients one-on-one to help them move and feel better.

I hope you enjoy reading about my passions and work here. Thank you so much for being a part of my community here and on social media. I love chatting with you guys – so please reach out any time if I can help you or if you just want to connect!

Have a wonderful day!

xo, Jess.
