  2. Describe your race day.

    I ran down the canyon... Haha and it was beautiful and cold, the way I like it!

  3. Did you PR?

    yes by 5 minutes, 1:33:20

  4. How would you describe the course?

    all down hill, fun

  5. Tell us about your training.

    i had a long run each week up and down hill. I built up those runs and then tapered down a few weeks before the race. I do hill and speed workouts sometimes. I have about 3 rest days or more per week

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    The second line is actually the finish. That was confusing after running a hard race. I sprinted to the end and caught some people, but I wasn't sure if I crossed unhealthy line in the moment.
    Make sure shoes are a good fit. I ran in somewhat new shoes and got blisters on my toes because they squished them. Don't wear extra clothing, then you'll have to carry it. You'll be warm enough running.
    Give it your all down the steep parts. Let loose and let gravity take you down!

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

    I'm going to school in Provo , but from Alaska. I just hung out with friends
