Describe your race day.
It was my first Big Cottonwood Half, and I have to say it was very well done. I have run over 65 haves and was very impressed by the expo and the transportation. The canyon was beautiful and the aid stations and water stops were awesome. You put on a great race!!!
Did you PR?
no, I got sick at mile 6 and 9 and had to use the porta potties:(
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful!!!! I grew up in SLC and have always loved Big Cottonwood Canyon summer and winter.
Tell us about your training.
I try to run a half marathon every other month, so my training is just kind of the same all the time. I just make sure I get an 11 miler in 2 Weeks before the race. I usually run between 15-20 miles a week.
What advice would you give future runners?
Plan on having sore legs for a few days after. Roll and I swim after to relieve the pain.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I stayed at my daughters and enjoyed eating and hanging out in SLC.
