To buddy09, you don't remember your run because you are holding your breath until you turn the last barrel. Have someone yell "breathe" at you as you run through the alley way, it works, trust me. I used to do the same thing.
Now for the actual question, no it doesn't get boring doing the same pattern over and over, simply because it's never exactly the same. Every arena is different, so every run is different. And you can't beat the friends you make doing it. I've had so many interesting stories happen to me while running barrels or poles, that I wouldn't trade those two patterns for anything.
