Have you ever seen a marathon pacer? They are those selfless people who help you get through your marathon so that you can claim the glory for your PR or better yet, help you achieve a qualifying time for Boston (and if that also happens to be a PR then AWESOME for you!!!!!)
If you have ever wondered what it was like being a marathon pacer, look no further. Tony Stafford, owner of Boulder Sports Performance and ultra distance runner, became a marathon pacer in 2009 and enjoys it thoroughly.
