If you want to run fast, run alone. If you want to run far, run together. If you want to run fast and far, run with @theninefour.
More seriously, folks are often reluctant to train with those profoundly better than them in a particular endeavour, possibly out of intimidation and in fear of being shamed. While the shaming is often inevitable, fearing it is reflective of a flawed mentality. Rather than rejecting such an opportunity, embrace it; in the knowledge that the path to betterment is sought from those who are already there. And ofcourse, all this is made easier when you have a group of exceptional individuals in your company. Here is to a gruelling yet gratifying 12kms.
On that note, when I grow up I want to be fast as fuck like @yazeeddavids @anyabruwer @odwa and Mr PB himself, @andyross08.
