Describe your race day.
I had a crap start with a delayed flight that got in at 12:00am and then didn't get to my hotel until about 1:30am. Woke up around 3:50am to go to the packet pickup. After all that this was still the best "fast" course I have run. I had a blast every moment. It was beautiful especially when the sun started hitting the peaks. I didn't want the half to end!
Did you PR?
No - I didn't race it but will come back for sure and go for a PR
How would you describe the course?
Fantastic downhill that isn't so steep you blow out your legs - the perfect amount of effortlessness.
Tell us about your training.
Didn't train for it but I run a lot of trails so that helped.
What advice would you give future runners?
BRING A THROWAWAY HUGE SWEATSHIRT and the emergency blanket in the morning - it's freezing at the top!
Come ready to race.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I came from Oklahoma and am in Cedar City tonight ready to see Zion and Bryce tomorrow morning.
