Describe your race day.
Was a good experience, very well organized event. Aid stations were well stocked and had all the right items. Only thing I could have seen that would better improve, is a the very start at the top. Maybe have some fire pits. Nebo and Bryce Canyon 1/2's had this and it was well appreciated. Other than that great race!!!!!!
Did you PR?
No, not enough training.
How would you describe the course?
Very beautiful course, made the trip down so much nicer having all the scenery.
Tell us about your training.
Not much, really need to do some so that the ending part, the flats are much smoother. Have completed about 7 half's this year but no prep other than a few small practice runs on the treadmill.
What advice would you give future runners?
Train more, know the course, prepare for the downhill, its much different than other courses.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We live here in SLC area (Hooper, UT), so we just stayed in a hotel near the race because of the early rise but really just nothing special...
