Describe your race day.
The race was well organized and run. I was impressed, and I've participated in a lot of races. I loved the gorgeous sunrise at the start and beautiful scenery during the course. The Wasatch Blvd leg was difficult, but the last couple miles downhill was even more rewarding.
Did you PR?
Yes and yes.
How would you describe the course?
The only part I'd change is the last part down Fort Union, where there's traffic on either side and the runners in the middle. It's hard for the spectators and runners don't like sucking down car exhaust.
Tell us about your training.
I trained well, prepared well and executed according to plan.
What advice would you give future runners?
Plan your run and run your plan.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
After . . . walked it out and enjoyed the feeling of accomplishing a difficult goal.
