Describe your race day.
I had a great day. The race was well organized and the course was beautiful. I liked the results cards at the end of the race. I ran with the 3:45 pace bunnies for most of the race and they were great.
Did you PR?
I did not PR, but I had a good time. I shaved almost 20 minutes off my last marathon
How would you describe the course?
The scenery was nice. The grade was challenging coming down the canyon. It really challenged the calves. Then we hit mile 18!! The out and back was a killer. Running back into town was nice with the downhill.
Tell us about your training.
I had done my marathon training with lots of speedwork. I needed more hill training and the altitude was a challenge.
What advice would you give future runners?
My advice would be to do the race. It is great!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We came from Saskatchewan, Canada. We went on the Salt Lake City tour including the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal. We stayed at the Hawthorn Wyndham Suites. I would recommend the tour and the accomodation.
