SUPER IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT PACE!
Pace continues to be our number one hurdle. Please note that our mission is about being together on the training/race course and about creating a sense of community. Running is how we do this, not why we do this, and the focus should never be about how fast or slow the team moves. You should assume that your team will be slower than your normal pace and you should never be running any faster than your slowest Wingman. Wingmen will not tell you if the pace is too fast. You must make sure that your pace is conversational and that you pay attention to the appearance of your Wingmen. Regularly ask them how the pace is, and when in doubt slow down!! Please remember, Captains should not be pushing beyond getting the team out of the start and out of the way of the other participants, or if the Wingmen ask for help. If your Wingmen are pushing they will be better able to find a pace that works for them. Our Wingmen are paying (fundraising) $350 for the experience of running on your team, please make this an awesome experience for them! And please feel free to always sign up on your own for any race that you would like to run at your pace, we'd like to make sure that you also meet your own personal racing goals.
