Describe your race day.
It was amazing. Everyone seamed very coordinated; the volunteers and people working the event. There wasn't any confusion about where to go. The whole attmosphere was positive, which made for an enjoyable day.
Did you PR?
No. But I finished within the time frame I set for myself.
How would you describe the course?
The scenery was breath taking. The grade and elevation were not that bad. Because there was so much to look at my mind wasn't focused on the road.
Tell us about your training.
I ran 3 days a week totaling 20- 30 miles. I strength trained by going to Pure Barre 3 days a week and rested 1 day a week. I used my fitness pal to keep track of my nutrition. I have to actually make sure I eat enough when I run because it decreases my appetite. When I did long runs I would use GU. I need to figure out my portions for the GU because if I eat too much it upsets my stomache.
What advice would you give future runners?
Definitely find some sort of training plan and go at a pace that's right for you. Everyone runs on a different level. It's good to push yourself, but not to the point of injury.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I live in Herriman Utah, so I went home and took a nap!
