Describe your race day.
The course is beautiful- but very difficult. I would have like to seen water- aid stops at every mile. Especially after we exited the canyon and was out in that hot sun.
Did you PR?
I did set a personal record- two minutes! And I did qualify for Boston for the 2nd time.. The other time was in Fargo N.Dakota.
How would you describe the course?
Scenery was gorgeous- the grade was very difficult, elevation was no problem for me.
Tell us about your training.
I live in southeast Texas - our summers are brutally hot!! Most of my training indoor- even the big mile runs.. I got to Salt Lake a week before the Marathon to incorporate some downhill training- but I needed a month or more!!
What advice would you give future runners?
If doing this race- run A lot of downhill!!!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We spent a lot of time touring the beautiful mountain range!! We traveled from Beaumont Texas.
