Describe your race day.
Beautiful and very fast. It was my first one and it set a precedent for my next ones. Very well organized, beautiful vistas, and a lot of great people all around. It's a great amalgamation of the every-friendly Rocky Mountain running scene. Honored to be a part of that scene.
Favorite memories: meeting the cool people I ran with, running with the pacers, and trying to get
Did you PR?
Yes; it was my first marathon (3:08:09)
How would you describe the course?
Tell us about your training.
Mmmm, not great. I really only kicked it into gear 3 weeks before, when really I should have already been tapering.
I recommend not doing a couch-to-road marathon. However, if there's a course to do so successfully, it's this one.
What advice would you give future runners?
Drink plenty of water and eat goos and whatever.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Ate! Talked with other runners. I came from Provo and just headed back after the race.
