I'm not in the (sub-3) shape that I was in, this time last year, and am planning not to get too upset when I don't post another PB come April.
It has got me thinking though about how to best enjoy VLM '10 and have a purpose, and I suddenly had a flash of inspiration: become a pacer!
I've been pacing friends in local races recently, and (logistics of different starts aside) was planning on pacing / advising friends at VLM, but thought it might be possible to do it "properly".
Does anyone know how I might get in touch with those coordinating the official pacers for VLM? I've a fair bit of marathon experience and would be quite comfortable pacing anything 3'15 or slower. It would give me the discipline not to try hareing off at sub-3 pace when I know I won't quite manage it again this time...
