Describe your race day.
Really proud that I truly let myself enjoy the race and the day and the beautiful scenery! No stress, no worries.. All fun! I will definitely be back next year with the hubby! This is now top of my list of favorite races even above Disney! And that's saying a lot! Repeat in 375 days! Thanks to my new friends here from Black Girls Rock 50 States, Black Girls Run, National Black Marathons Association, Half Fanatics and all the wonderful Utah natives who made a point to say hi and be so welcoming! Half #23! State #11! #RunBigC #RunRevel #TeamB44 #HF8871 #BGR #BOTP #BGRock50
Did you PR?
No but only because I paused for so many pictures!
How would you describe the course?
Scenic! Challenging! Fun! My favorite!
Tell us about your training.
This was my 10th half marathon this year! 24 lifetime half marathons total and Utah is my 11th state. I am always ready for a fun half and I do one over the summer ever month and sometimes every 2 weeks!
What advice would you give future runners?
Bring a throw away sweatshirt for the starting wait but otherwise be ready to have a fun day! I stayed at the Hyatt cottonwood and they shuttled to the start line and back to the hotel! That was invaluable! Want a good burger? Go to "Bout Time! Fabulous and great service! The bartender Sam called my by name the whole time there!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Visiting from Chicago! Actually Aurora Illinois! We don't have the mountains and I can't stop viewing them! Perfect vacation stop and next time I'm bringing my hubby! This was a girls weekend!
