Sarah 's thoughts:

I love Pacers! Their races are awesome for everyone - when I do them on my own, I can PR. But I can also do them with my husband (who is not as "committed" as a runner as I am) and we have a lot of fun together. There are elite runners, families, people with their dogs, and people who just want to go for a nice walk at the end of the week. Pacers also does a "shoe lab" at the races. I tried Hokas and Brooks this year and will probably have to switch soon.

I love having them on Friday evenings - it's a great way to end the week. They are great about starting more or less on time, although they are sensitive to when people are waiting in line for their bib numbers (they postponed some of the races this year by 5-10 minutes to make sure people could start on time). They keep everyone informed in situations like this.

The course is fun and they tend to vary it year by year. The local police and volunteers are awesome and keep the roads clear and safe. There's one water stop on the course and water at the end.

There are a lot of restaurants nearby if you want to hang out and have dinner afterwards. The start/finish is close to the metro. The t-shirt is also nice :)

I really wish that these were all year and not just in April!
