I was wondering if there's anyone of you out there running Hardrock
this year and still in need for a pacer.
I paced 60 miles last year (Howie Stern from Mammoth Lake/CA), and 28
miles the year before
(Howard Cohen from Newbury Park/SoCal) - both to a PR.
Hardrock is something very special to me - it was my first experience
in Colorado, and finally made me move to Colorado from California.
So, I'd like to have an excuse to be out on the course, and benefit
from the aid stations, and meet all the great Hardrock people, aside
from getting sunrise in the San Juans, after a night long of
I'd also love to participate in the skiing through the HR course
experience, after I saw some pictures of the current course
I am pretty easy going, and can either indicate things like stream
crossings, obstacles on the trail, etc. ahead of time, or not talk
much at all, if preferred. Or, I can motivate. I can go over
logistics ahead of time etc., if desired.
I'll stick it out with you if you have a moment at an aid station and
need to rest for an hour. The only condition I would have for pacing
is: be determined to not drop, even if it's hard (it's Hardrock! :)),
unless there's a medical urgency or a safety concern.
I'd really just like to be at Hardrock 2011 :)
I can be at Grouse Gulch as soon as 3pm on Fri, July 8th, and will
actually just show up and do that, if I don't find anyone through
these emailing efforts.
Please email me off list if interested.
Thanks, and good luck to all Hardrockers!
