ban the pacer test

I believe that the pacer test is an unfair measurement of students fitness. Having us run laps around the track instead means we still get exercise and fresh air but we can go at our own pace. Not everyone is a track star. Not everyone has the physical ability to run hard.  The pacer test makes us run faster and faster,  back-and-forth at an increasing speed until we can no longer run resulting in many people becoming ill from over exertion.  The pacer test can also cause anxiety, and stress.  We should be focused on school work instead of running back-and-forth in the gym not even getting fresh air or sunlight.
