I had set my goal at 1:55, to set a new PR. Although I didn't meet my goal (missed it by a few minutes), I referred to my pace band throughout the entire 13.1 mile journey. At every mile marker I would check out where I should be. I was usually pretty much on target actually. If I was a few seconds behind, I would kick it up a notch. It really did help me out. The last two miles were tough on my feet, so I didn't get a PR, but I was close. The Pace Band really did help keep me focused on a goal.
