  2. Describe your race day.

    Unsure of what to expect. I not only finished, but amazingly for my first half marathon finished in 1 hour and 50 minutes. I'm very excited, and will continue to train for a full marathon next year. Beautiful run as well as the people I met. Thank you.

  3. Did you PR?

    Yes, this is my first half marathon.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    I didn't prepare for down hill running and my calf muscles got very sore. I love the course and will be looking forward to next year's full marathon.

  5. Tell us about your training.

    Treadmill and a 6 mile trail run twice a week.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Train for down hill running.

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

    Visited my younger brother for the day.
