This iteration of our Question of the Week comes from an issue I will be facing soon at Rocky Raccoon 100: pacing someone! All sort of questions are floating around my mind like:
- What can you possibly talk about for 20…even 40 miles?
- At what point will me singing “You’re the Best Around” lose its effectiveness?
- Will I get shanked or disowned if I cramp before my runner does?
And the list goes on. So here is our opportunity to (please!) share your tips for pacing someone and getting them through those difficult last miles of a 100. Additionally, if you have any interesting stories we can all learn from (or laugh at), post them in the reply area!
