Tell us your best pacing experience.


My first pacing experience was when a friend asked me to pace a half marathon she put together. She asked me to pace a 1:30 half. I told her that was rather aggressive, but she said she knew I could do it. So I did. In that race I helped 4 runner run under 1:30 to this day they still thank me whenever I see them at local races.
