  2. Describe your race day.

    My race was tough due to injury , but I was able to BQ again by about 25 minutes. This is my third year in a row for the full , and I was lucky to BQ at all three times, even when the out and back was was longer. My favorite memory was the beauty of this canyon, and all of my running friends. Two of my friends stayed after their marathon and cheered me on.

  3. Did you PR?

    I was a minute from PR. I think I could have done better if my calves hadn't cramped in the last 3 miles. Just grateful to have run.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    The course is not the easy downhill that you hear people , who haven't run it , call it. I think it is challenging , but fun.

  5. Tell us about your training.

    I train with Run4fun people and Hometown Heroes. I did quite a bit of trail running this summer to mix it up, and a few uphill races in Colorado , and a few peaks.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Not being an expert , I would just tell them to run All aspects of the course, to get a feel of what it would be like .

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

    I loved the expo and went to lunch with friends . I happily ran the canyon during the summer , at a pace to enjoy the scenery . It was so crowded towards the end.
