Describe your race day.
Morning bus shuttle was good. Start was not. Looked very unorganized. Porta potties were aligned terribly. Huge delays on the start. I start at the end. Gun went off and I was just getting out of restroom. Took 30mins to finally reach rest room. Started 3mins after the starters. I ran a 2:48 and would have competed for a faster time if I had the opportunity.
Course was fast and easy just like it said it was going to be, awesome.
Post race. No beer garden? Wtf. That is a huuuuuuuuge disappointment.
Did you PR?
No, but i wanna run this again so I can.
How would you describe the course?
Downhill downhill. Save your quads.
Tell us about your training.
80% in shape. I am a sea level runner and ranapproximately 25miles at 7,500ft or above in prep. Was good. I would get my base up. Need more 18-22mile runs. Only did 3-16milers.
What advice would you give future runners?
Expect a delayed start. Very cold to start. Bring old clothes to discard during first few miles.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
After. Nothing. No beer garden. The post race band was awesome though.
Had In-N-Out burger. Best thing todo in SLC.
