  2. Describe your race day.

    This was my first half marathon and it will NOT be my last! What a great run and super fun course. Not to mention the organization of the race! Awesome job. Thank you for making my first half an awesome experience.

  3. Did you PR?

    I set a PR. Being my first half ever, I was hoping to finish at 2:45, I came in at 2:32!! So happy!!

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Perfect! I love this canyon. It's beautiful and fast!

  5. Tell us about your training.

    I was not a runner when I first started training. My training was filled with knee pain and foot pain, but I wouldn't do anything different.

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Dress warm! It was way colder than I thought and you can shed layers as you warm up, but expect cold!!

  7. What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?

    I crossed the finish line with my cute daughter and I headed straight for the massage table! I waited for my sister to complete the marathon. I traveled from south salt lake. (On a side note, please have more gluten free options to eat at the end of the race). Other than that this was a wonderful experience! Thank you revel and the volunteers who made it possible.
