Suggestions to your pace group: Pacing will be as close to even splits as I can keep. Overall average pace will be right on the mark despite terrain, weather, or aide stations. I do not bank time. I do not speed up at the end to achieve a negative split. My ultimate goal is to take the pace at even effort – average pace consistent with the group I’m pacing. Have a great marathon.
