A Wonderful Experience In My First “Official” Pacer Role

Baystate Marathon & Half Marathon¬†– 3:29:23 – I had an amazing, inspiring time volunteering on behalf of our running club, Athletic Alliance, and leading the 3:30 pace group for the Baystate Marathon. Being a part of so many cool people’s great accomplishments, PRs and BQs, was an honor, and I cannot think of a better way to get my last long training run for the Stonecat 50 in the books than this one! Was my first time running as an official pacer – and I loved it. I would love to do this again.

Carrying the 3:30 sign for 26.2 miles was not half the hassle I thought it would be, and sharing stories and helping people to reveal their strength as we ran was so rewarding. Beautiful weather, beautiful day. Great job, team 3:30!
