- If you are CHOSEN to pace, that means that:
- You are either:
- a good friend, or
- not too annoying to spend exorbitant amounts of time with in the middle of the night
- You are fast enough to either:
- keep up, or
- push the pace
- Stay up all night long and still be enthusiastic
- Have tricks up your sleeve
- Bring yummy snacks
Above all, in this sport, pacing is a training run, group get-together, all-night party, and YET ANOTHER character building activity (...as if we haven't attained enough of those!!). With Bryce 100 right around the corner, I am starting to pull together buckets of rubbing alcohol, sponges, glow-in-the-dark bracelets, cow bells, bear-shaped cookies, and camping gear. I am worried that I won't have enough to talk about, won't be the best cheerleader I can be, and won't be able to keep up (...all of which I know are unfounded...).
Does anyone else get as nervous about pacing as I do? This is a lot of pressure!! I hope Harrison likes mints.
(p.s. I will be pacing Harrison the last 33 miles late Friday night through Saturday morning and I am so excited!!!! He will do great and I will try my best not to blow too many snot rockets.)
