I have just completed my first VLM in 3.56.42 and I couldn't have done it without the Runner's World 9 min mile Pacer. I joined him at mile 8 and stayed with him every step of the way. I'm chuffed to bits with my time and it really is all thanks to him. I don't know his name but he must have been late 40's/early 50's and he had a Northern accent. If anyone knows the fella please please please can you thank him from me - I was the bald guy in the bright yellow top and green shorts.
