Tonight I will hopefully pace someone for the last two laps of their personal 100 mile journey. I've attended two practice runs to learn more about how to pace a runner and hopefully motivate them through the last of their run safely.
This is a task I take seriously since I know how much it means to have my friends and family cheer me on either via email, facebook, phone calls, or letters. I cannot imagine at this point what it will be like for the person I will pace or me. I know that I will likely be changed by this as anyone would be by helping someone achieve a personal goal.
