Describe your race day.
fun atmosphere, beautiful scenery, and surprisingly wasnt too cold up at the top
Did you PR?
it was my first marathon so i guess so haha
How would you describe the course?
Tell us about your training.
followed a 3 months workout plan i found online. combined long run with shorter speed workouts. it was great
What advice would you give future runners?
incorporate weight training to prepare for downhill. mile 1 and mile 13 are terrible. I hate downhill but I held back the entire first 18 miles so that by the time i got to mile 19 i was able to drop my pace 50 seconds per mile and have a really fun time running the last 7. Had I gone out faster, I just would have suffered the whole race instead of been able to enjoy the scenery for the first 19 and then enjoy really pushing myself the last 7
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
went to trader joes
