  2. Describe your race day.

    I woke up really early to drive up to the SLC area from Provo and found the buses easily. At the starting line I waited for a while with plenty of time for my feet to get numb... I was not expecting it to be that cold--should have prepared for that a little better. For me the course was hard but it made it that much more sweet to make it through the finish line. I wish there would have been an ice bath available but I was grateful for the ice towels.

  3. Did you PR?


  4. How would you describe the course?

    The starting line was miserably cold and might have been aided with some warm drinks or fire pits. The course is a hard and long course because it is so steep for the entire time and the out and back played mind games that makes it hard.

  5. Tell us about your training.

    My training was interrupted unexpectedly with a serious illness during the summer for a good 4 weeks. I think I did pretty well considering my circumstances.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Practice the couse.
