I got to say, my first time being a pace bunny was super fun!
I was very lucky to be selected for the Asics Team squad pacing the 1:45 half marathon group. Despite the summer heat conditions, I did hit my target kilometre pacing with nearly military precision. One of the Asics Reps even ran right next to me. Feeling like a rockstar! :)
This pace band helped.
While going downhill on NW marine, a lady told me that we were doing it right, taking it slower on the downhill.
My co-worker Nelson at the Running Room ran with me the entire way. It was super satisfying knowing he was happy with his result. We ran 1:43:45 with plenty of time for people to reach their sub 1:45.
I got comments from people thanking us for being able to hit their goal times! “What a beast!” someone say to me!
Of course coming into the finishing line, you got comments like “Wow, such perfect timing!”
Dimitrios was pacing a friend too, and said “A long career of pace bunnying ahead of you, my friend!” I had my nerdie pace band on one wrist and TomTom GPS watch on the other wrist and gulped, “Yup!”
