John, I will do whatever I can to help. I've been the person in the past struggling with the heat to keep pace.

Today was an easy 3.1 miles for me, which I ran with Peggy. She continued on for 9 miles.

Thanks, Dave. It was a failure in that I had major porta-potty issues at just past mile 22. It was a success in that I helped keep the team on pace through that distance and Joe and Katie finished the job.

I was wondering what happened to you. Guess that is why they have multiple pacers. Sorry to hear of the issues, glad you finished OK.

Congrats on holding the team on pace for 22 miles... that was the critical part of the race, anyway. Yipes on the port-potty problems.

Sorry about the porta potty issues. Great job leading them for the first 22 in those conditions.

It happens Jim. I had to drop back at mile 22 in St. Louis a couple of years ago, and I was the 4:15 pacer! I had stomach issues and some other stuff (including a later determined staff infection) undermine me, but we are human and we do what we can. Great job! I hope that you get to do it again.

Glad things went well for 22 miles at least. Never fun to have bathroom issues during a race. Glad you had backup. Hats off to all of you pacers!!

I think that was a great job - 22 miles is no picnic! I'm sure the runners really appreciate it.
