    5/5 Stars

  2. Describe your race day.

    Beautiful course but tough - especially miles 19-22. Day was a little warm. Excellent volunteers and police support. Good organization. Traffic was congested at the start line.

  3. Did you PR?

    No - too old for that :) I was a few minutes off qualifying for Boston.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Starting area is amazing as the sun rises in the east. Down the canyon is beautiful but it is difficult to find the right pace in order to ensure you have enough energy for the last 7 miles. The stretch on Wasatch Blvd was difficult, especially being in the full sun.

  5. Tell us about your training.

    Standard base during the week with long runs on weekends. Unfortunately I have been out of town for much of the last four weeks which threw off my training.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Be careful on pacing yourself. The last 7 are difficult.

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

    Nothing much before, hung around the finish line at the end which was fun.

    Great race. I will likely run again and try to get my pacing adjusted.
