Describe your race day.
I was undertrained so I'm glad I actually finished. Please put more porta potties at the first aid station. I had to wait 10 minutes in line because there were only 5. I saw only a few people waiting at the others. Aid stations were great and course was beautiful. Love that the swag bag included the foil blanket and gloves. Would've liked a few bonfires at the start to help with warmth or maybe hot cocoa
Did you PR?
Nope, not even close due to lack of training.
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful and SUPER steep downhills. I was unprepared for how steep some of those sections were. It was really nice to be out of the sun for the first 9-10 miles though but got really hot the rest of the way. More aid stations there would help!
Tell us about your training.
I had some injuries I was fighting so I only did pne long run each week and only got to 9.5 miles. I did not train on enough of a downhill for this race.
What advice would you give future runners?
Train on steep downhills so you are ready for them!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I live close (Davis County) but with the early bus load window, we had to spend the night at a nearby hotel so we did dinner and that. The expo was fun but could've had a few more vendors.
