Describe your race day.
I had a great time at the start line with friends and so excited to see family at the finish!
Did you PR?
I set a new PR! I PR'd by almost an hour! I wanted to qualify for Boston but didn't this year. Next year I will!
How would you describe the course?
It was absolutely incredible. The downhill made me feel like a speedster! I also liked the challenge of the out and back.
Tell us about your training.
I did all my long runs in Big Cottonwood canyon. It really helped on race day to be familiar with the course and I'm not even sore because of all the downhill training.
What advice would you give future runners?
Do downhill training!! Dress warm on race day morning and shed along the course if needed.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We took the kids to eat breakfast after the race. It was nice having so much to choose from.
We came from Eagle Mountain, Utah
