Describe your race day.
Amazing. So well put together!! Loved the encouraging signs all down the race, all the aid stations were a swing, the emails were amazing, the info the packets everything was awesome. I've ran many halfs and this is by far my favorite because of how well managed and easy everything was!!
Did you PR?
YES! Yay! I was told I would, I PR'd by 12 minutes and best ever out of 5 half marathons.
How would you describe the course?
Scenery was great, elevation great, the grade obviously was steep but I signed up knowing that.
Tell us about your training.
I trained on hills and I loved doing that because it was so easy to run downhill. I also do a lot of strength training and attend orange theory fitness classes that have helped my endurance.
What advice would you give future runners?
Everything was so great for me, don't over pack on race day.. You don't need layers of clothing and if you do the bag drop was so easy and efficient
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Live in farmington, we went to corner bakery at fashion place after for breakfast and that was great!
