Describe your race day.
Everything was perfect from the weather, the course, the volunteers and aid stations. I PR'd and also qualified for Boston. I couldn't have been more happy and more sore.
Did you PR?
Yes, by 11 minutes. I also qualified for Boston.
How would you describe the course?
The absolute best course I have run. The scenery is magnificent. I will be back next year.
Tell us about your training.
I train hard for marathons. I h ave run 11 of them and run year-round. Thankfully I live in a place with hills and mountains. They helped prepare me for this downhill race.
What advice would you give future runners?
Work hard and enjoy it!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I love driving up Big Cottonwood Canyon. I love walking around Silver Lake. Of course we had to visit some of the local restaurants and my wife goes shopping. We traveled from Vernal, Utah.
