*Disclosure: Pacebands was kind enough to give me one free band to review. As always, all opinions are my own.*
Recently, Pacebands gave me a band to try out. I’ve seen these bands on other blogs, and I’ve also seen them being worn at some of the races I have participated in. I picked a blue one with white lettering because I figured the color would stand out and be easy to read while I was running. Pacebands offers a variety of colors to choose from. Speaking of variety, I was very impressed with the huge selection of race distances and times that were offered.
I will slowly ease back into running after Dawson’s birth, so I picked a 5K pace of 33 minutes. My current 5K PR is longer than 33 minutes and I figured the band would help me achieve a new PR in the coming months. The thing I like about Pacebands is that it is a great addition to whatever running watch you use (I use a Garmin). For example, my watch tells me what my current pace is but, the Paceband will help me track and keep in mind the goal I should have for each mile. This is especially great for me because I am terribly bad at math and trying to keep up with my goals and pace while running is incredibly frustrating. My Paceband will be a huge asset in me reaching my race goals. I know that I’ll be ordering additional distances in the future.

*Once again, Pacebands did provide me with a complimentary band. All opinions are my own.*
