Describe your race day.
Excellent. VERY cold at the start but could have been worse. Would have been nice to wait on the bus a while.
Did you PR?
Yes by 3:44. I ran the half. Didn't need to run the full. I was already qualified for Boston.
How would you describe the course?
Excellent for getting a PR.
Tell us about your training.
Should have run more hills to improve my speed and time. Legs and heart need the experience of downhill races.
What advice would you give future runners?
Run hills more. Dress warmer for the start.
Brought food for the night before in the hotel room instead of dining out. Good decision.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Nothing. Came to run a race, not see the sights.
