Hi, I am training for a marathon in January. Few blips but overall training going well. I would like to run Boston. To be 10 mins under BQ, which should mean a definite place I need to run 3 44 59! A friend suggested I ran with the 3 45 pacer then 'sprinted' the last 200 metres.
My question is, how much leeway does a pacer have? Do they come in on time, or can they be over by a margin? Only asking as I have always run races without using the Pacers.
