Whatever your goal, if you’ve ever considered using a pacer in a race, you need to listen to this episode. Host Sarah talks with four women (including co-host Amanda!) about their experiences (good and bad) running a race with a pace group. They discuss:

-various reasons to use a pacer;
-how to get the best results with a pace group;
-different ways to utilize a pacer; and,
-why a race pacer isn’t necessarily a magical PR-maker.

Sarah shares a quick story about a scummy swim before talking to Amanda about her pacer experiences at 5:35.
