  2. Describe your race day.

    The race started great. I had a great pace going through mile 19 until the 4 mile out and back. That killed it for me. It was far too hot and I hated that 4 miles. This was my 5th marathon. I felt pretty well prepared but was pretty disappointed in the last 8 miles of the course.

  3. Did you PR?

    No. I was on track to BQ but lost it at the out and back.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Running down the canyon was fast and beautiful. It was steep but I made great time. I really didn't like running along the traffic for he last 4 miles. I was breathing exhaust the whole time.

  5. Tell us about your training.

    I trained hard. I'd add more downhill training and maybe some speed work.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Plan on being miserable for the last 8 miles. The fast beginning was not enough to make up for the crappy out and back.

  7. What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?

    I traveled from Eagle Mountain.
