Pacing the school mile races

On Wednesday along with team-mate and club chairman Steve Mclean I helped pace the school races in the local Victoria park.
It was quite funny to think that Steve's and my age combined equalled over a hundred years!
Most of the kids running were aged from 11-16 yet we managed to keep ahead despite leading 8 races.
But it has to be said that I chickened out of running the ninth race and paced the 15-16 year olds race on my bike!
