Run Sherpa or Aide Station on Wheels?

I'm not sure which name I like best, but the job is the same. Each Sunday I accompany Tony on his long run. Of course I am not fast enough to keep up with him anymore, so I go along on my bike.

He loads up my bike and my pockets with his Gu Brew and Gu energy gels and stuffs my pockets with the layers he removes as it gets warmer.

But it's turned out to be a pretty good gig. I get two uninterrupted hours with him to enjoy the amazing sunny skies and view of the ocean. And I get a slow two hour ride that doesn't do too much for my cardio, but it is a great core workout from trying to balance while peddling so slowly.

So which name shall I claim? Run Sherpa? Or Aide Station on Wheels?

Thanks so much. At first I didn't want to do it, but it is such a great, relaxing time each week to recharge.
