Pace Group Instructions

Hey kids if you are looking to run with a pace group Sunday at the Pig just get to the start a bit early and look for us holding out signs lined up behind the start in order or pace. We will be in place at 6 am. Gals will be in bright yellow asics outfits, guys in red. Pace groups start at 3:20 and go up to 5 hours. I'll be the one holding the 3:50 sign and wearing a pig snout. Just come up and say hello. Definitely for this course it is better to go out a little slow. The hill from 5 to 10 will be tough but after that there is plenty of flat at downhills to let you pick up the pace.

Good Luck! Hope to see some of you Sunday!

Oh and if you do use a pacer Sunday at the Pig or at Pittsburgh and you think they did a good job email pacerjim@hotmail.com and let him know. We can always use the feedback so we can continue to keep pacing great marathons!

Have fun pacing! That's such a fun race--you'll have a blast! I want some pics of the pig nose! ha ha

If you feel like running 8s in Cleveland for the half, you know I'd love a partner! :)

hey girl, you had so many people around you I couldn't get close enough to say Hi. I tried to wave but knew you wouldn't know who I was. We started out behind you but kept you in sight for a long time. never could catch up and say hi. my quads died and I didn't get my BQ, a PR or even a sub 4. SO the Pig was a bust but I had a blast.
