Describe your race day.
Very tough course. Good running surface but extreme steep(for me) at times.
Well run event. Had a never forget day- thanx
Did you PR?
No but, my 3:53:01 was my fastest marathon in almost 4 years and 4 th fastest of 16.
How would you describe the course?
More difficult then I thought. I train on mostly flat so I'm having difficulty walking today(day after)
More steep AND highest altitude I ever saw for an event. Challenging and stunningly beautiful.
Tell us about your training.
About 40 miles/wk. track WO with repeats and long runs on weekends. Did dome hill trading but not nearly enough.
What advice would you give future runners?
Train running repeats downhill
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Drove course- wow- scenery
