Help your fellow team mate achieve their potential
I need one of those Knight Rider! I'm trying to do a race each month this year and I did that cherry picking thing on my own in the only 2 other races I've ever run (2 half marathons) and it worked then. But now I'm doing off-road races, I'm finding it really tough and I lost pace in the last 2 and watched people I'd previously overtook, overtaking me.
I run with an off-road club but when I ask seasoned runners in the club for tips, they don't really have any, they say - just run. I guess I need to talk to someone with a strategy which has recently worked for them.

I have run for a good few years , and I get the most enjoyment out of pacing people around races to get to them to their goals. Some people in my club say i should run for myself in races and my answer to them is i do run for myself im getting enjoyment in what i'm doing. I have even started taking a friend out walking a couple of nights a week to get her fit and maybe one day she will do the same for others would'nt that be great. .
Mr CS is my knight in man-made fibres at races, I was desperate to get 2:25 at Sheffield half this year (yes I know I'm slow... get over it) and with Mr CS pushing me to keep going when my legs just wanted to walk up some of the hills I managed it with plenty of seconds to spare.
I've supported friends around races and kept them running even if its been at a snails pace and the feeling at the end is just wonderful... I highly recommend it.
Well done on the PB Knight rider.
