as for differences in pace - this can a good things or it can be a bad thing:

- sometimes if you're running with a person who is faster, it can be a help to you in quickening your pace and learning to run faster....
this is a needed pace if you are wanting a faster 5K or 10K race time

- and if you're running with a person who is slower, it can help you in learning to 'slow it down'...
this is a needed pace if you are wanting to run a marathon

you don't have to run with someone who has the exact same pace

Thanks for putting these out there. I haven't run with others much. How do you reconcile the difference in pace? I worry that I would slow them down too much.

running tips: this and that #8

. . . . train with SOMEONE . . . 
"It may seem odd to hear a coach say this, but I think a really great training partner is more important than a coach." - Joan Nesbit, coach and world-class runner


. . . . ANYONE . . .
"Never underestimate the value of a good training partner, even if it's your dog. Training allies will get you out the door on those days when exercise might otherwise be reduced to a finger on the remote control button." - Runner's World editors



. . . . but sometimes go SOLO
 "The day after a hard workout, I always train alone. If you run with someone else, there can be a tendency to push harder than you should." - Mark Allen, former Ironman champion

the above running tip i recently found in a menís health article, but sure they are the same tips that were published in runners world some time ago
