Describe your race day.
This race took my breath away! It is so beautiful and so fast! This is my third half marathon and by far my favorite! I shaved 15 mins off my last half marathon time! I will admit that at one point I started crying because the mountains were so beautiful! I can't wait to do this again!!!! The aid stations were very helpful and everything was amazing!
Did you PR?
I shaved 15 mins off my last half marathon time! I finally got a time that I'm proud of.
How would you describe the course?
The first 4 miles of the course were a gradual downhill and slow got faster and faster. The scenery was so beautiful that I didn't even think about the blisters that were waiting for me at the finish line. All in all it was amazing! A fast course with beautiful scenes... You couldn't ask for more!
Tell us about your training.
I was actually pretty lazy with my training this time around. I did a couple of down hill runs and my longest training day was only 8 miles. I didn't feel as prepared as I would have liked to. But this course was so fast that I still PR'd!
What advice would you give future runners?
All I can say is train as hard as you can! Prepare yourself mentally and physically and you will be successful. If I would have put more into my training I would have been even faster!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I live in draper Utah so I didn't have to travel for the race. I enjoyed all the activities they had at the expo center for the packet pick up and all the great treats at the end.
