Tell your best pacing experience

I have a lot of great pacing experiences…… One time I was sweeping a Half marathon and the runner I was helping along dropped out due to an injury, so I got her a ride. I started running to catch up with the new last runner when I came to a runner who was doing the full marathon and she was struggling. I ran with her the last 6 miles keeping her going. When she crossed the finished line, she thanked me for helping her because she wouldn’t have made it with out my help and encouragement.

Why should someone run in your pacing group.

Not only do I have a lot of fun running stories to share but I will share with you tricks and tips to help you in your running
