Describe your race day.
My race day had so many great memories from making new friends to seeing a moose just off the side of the course to a great PR.
Did you PR?
I had a awesome race by cutting five minutes off my PR with a finishing time of 1:46:32.
How would you describe the course?
Very beautiful and fast.
Tell us about your training.
My training went very well this year by adding some tempo runs and speed work to my program but most importantly running slower on my long run days. What I would do differently for next year would be add some more race like runs to my training program to get a feel for the speed of this course. Advice I would give other would be try to train on some down hill routes to simulate race.
What advice would you give future runners?
I have ran this race every year. Tips I would give others would be bring warm cloths to the start to stay warm before the race, train on some down hill routes to simulate this course and most importantly enjoy your race!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I just relaxed before the race so my legs would be fresh. After the race I hung out with other runners, talk about how their race went, meet up with family to cheer on other runners to finish their marathon or half then went home to watch football, GO UTES!
