Wearing a Pacebands bracelet and a giveaway

Disclosure:  Christine and I were each given a Pacebands bracelet.  No other compensation was received and the opinions stated here are my own.

Recently I had the opportunity to try out a Pacebands bracelet.  I have seen runners wearing these during races, and I actually made my own using pen and paper for a race last year.  Let's just say making your own is really not a great option!

So here is what arrived a month ago in my mailbox. Pacebands has a great website that let's you choose not only your pace but color of bracelet too.  I thought the yellow would be best for easy reading so that was my color choice.


I have taken my Pacebands bracelet for a test ride on several different occasions.  It has been a great addition to my long run gear.  The bracelet is very easy to read and after a minute you do not notice you are wearing it.  Best of all it can be used for training runs and race day. While a Garmin watch or running watch gives you your pace and time, this helps keep you on track for a goal.  When training or racing, having the ability to check out how close you are to your target time is so helpful.  I love being able to check after each mile and see if I am on track.  Actually, having several of these bracelets for different race distances would be nice!  Check out the webpage here and see which one is on your list.  And best of all, Pacebands is giving two lucky readers a chance to choose their own band.

  4. I've worn the pace bands given to runners at the runDisney marathon weekend, which are nice because you can check if you're ok target to reach your goal. But, the waxy, paper bracelet cannot even compare to what it looks like this bracelet can provide! I like that you can choose a time that isn't in five or ten minute increments. A more specific goal can be placed on this pace band.

  13. I used a temp one that the pace group was giving out for a race and loved it. I saw these in a running store, but thought they were way expensive, especially since I want a few different ones for different races. I LOVE them though.

  19. I always pick up the paper ones from the Cliff pacing groups, but then I forget about them on race day. Having a plastic one on my wrist next to my Garmin might make me utilize it! I'm not sure what color...they're all so pretty!

  32. What a great idea to keep you on track because pace runners are not always easy to spot, keep up with, or even be running your goal pace you want. I have seen theses at some expos but they are the free ones that are paper and only a one use. -L
