Jesse Scott wins Peace, Love and 50 Miles

Posted by on Sep 27, 2010 | One Comment

This last Saturday, I had the pleasure of crewing and pacing for Jesse Scott as he won the Peace, Love, and 50 Miles race at the Woodstock Running Festival.  It was a great weekend made even better by Jesse’s win.  I’ll let Jesse tell the story of the race… look for his race report at his “In Search of Solid Ground” blog.  I will mention that he won with a time of 7:03 with negative splits in each of the three laps, and the second place finisher finished in 8:14.  Jesse’s one Hell of a runner.

I’ll post a full crew report as soon as I get the time.  It was my first shot at crewing and pacing.  Seeing the different perspective was an educational experience… I had the opportunity to watch some great runners at various stages of a race.

The crewing and pacing experience itself went well other than a few near-panics brought on my time miscalculations.  It was great to spend a day with Shelly, Mark, and Sam.  For anyone considering ultras, crewing and pacing is a great introduction.  I highly recommend it!

More to come soon!

    It was nice meeting you at RunWoodstock. I’m the guy that was with the guy that recognized you. 😛 Congratulations to your friend, I’m sure that you pacing him really helped him with those negative splits. That’s an amazing time for a 50 miler, especially with all the hills and so forth. I’ve paced a friend in a 100 miler before and your right, it’s very rewarding. Take care and maybe we’ll cross paths again soon…
