Describe your race day.
Everything about the race was amazing! From the aid stations to the volunteers. The finish line was amazing! I would do this race over and over and over! Revel makes the race seem that much easier!
Did you PR?
This was my first half marathon I've ever done. I'm not a runner by any means but if I had a PR I'm sure I would have beaten that today!
How would you describe the course?
The course was beautiful the whole way down! Beautiful mountain peaks shoot up behind wonderful trees and the sounds of a rushing river. The fresh air fills your lungs and the pure joy of running shines!
Tell us about your training.
Unfortunately I must admit I didn't train at all for this race. I plan on training for next year! Then I'll neat my PR by far!
What advice would you give future runners?
This course does most if the work. If you're a beginner like me...take your time and let the hills do the work. Carbo load and enjoy the run!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Before the race it was a little chilly...but cuddling up under a blanket is perfect! After the race was amazing! Live music and great food is a great way to celebrate an accomplishment like this!
