just stumbled across this post and found it extremely helpful for all of us out there looking to create a marathon pace band with our goal marathon time.  check it out…i’m going with the marathon guide version, because i like the bold treatment (every other mile) and i like that it lists the half marathon time (surprising that many do not).

i do have to note the “my marathon pace” band is amazing, and i used it for 2011 CIM it worked perfectly (and extremely accurately).  if they had one for chicago, even though the course is very flat i would’ve purchased it.
