Races2Remember Review + Giveaway




I recently won a set of 3 custom pace bands from Races2Remember.

Races2Remember offers "SmartPace" Bands, custom created to make adjustments for elevation changes along the course. The pace band splits can be calculated using one of three pacing strategies: Warm-Up, Modified Warm-Up or Even Split. Learn more here.

They were even willing to provide my pace bands with splits in kilometres!




Races2Remember also carries a variety of other products.


Back Bibs! 

Back Bibs are personalized with the colors, wording and photo of your choice and printed on water-proof and tear-proof paper.



MyName Bibs!

These glorified "name tag" bibs allow you to identify yourself loud and proud so that spectators and volunteers can cheer for you by name.








Grace Bands!

In similar style to a pace band, you can dedicate each mile to a certain person or idea, or select one word or saying to be printed in large font around the wrist band.














Tattoos!

Custom temporary tattoos allow you to "wear" a special dedication, time goal, photo/graphic and/or text.












Races2Remember offers excellent customer service, is happy to accommodate special requests and provides a great product with a quick turn-around.

You can win a product of your choice from Races2Remember!

FINALLY - a pace band that takes into account not all of us run even splits! ;) I'd definitely choose the warm-up band, and save myself the agony of doing simple math in my head during big races (which obviously only provides a distraction)!

Happy Friday!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

I used the Grace Band in my first marathon! And wow! It was such an amazing thing! I spent about 2 weeks thinking about who/what I would put on it and what mile...and during the entire marathon I had my mind occupied with people and things that were dear to my heart. I get pretty emotional thinking about it right now. I truly felt like I was meditating the entire race. Such a wonderful tool and powerful experience!

Oh yeah and I follow you! I like them on FB too!
I would to the Grace Band again, or maybe a tattoo! So fun!
