Describe your race day.
Weather was a little warmer than last year but it was exciting to catch up with friends along the course and cheer each other on.
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful, easy, fast and fun!
Tell us about your training.
I did long runs every weekend beginning in June and increased the distance by one mile every week. I also did speed drills and exercises to help develop the glutes to help push me. I probably should have incorporated some small distance runs throughout the week but my work schedule wasn't conducive to that. As far as advice, do the long distance runs and have fun.
What advice would you give future runners?
Dress comfortably, don't drop anything on the road unless you're okay not seeing it again and carb up and hydrate well the day before the race.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Our team traveled from Boise so we gathered at Noodles near the expo for a carb-a-licious dinner. Since we had a team of 12 we then gathered at the finish area afterward and enjoyed the music and company of fellow racers while relaxing under our pop up tent. It was a true treat.
