Describe your race day.
It was a perfect race, weather, energy, and so well organized along with friendly volunteers! Loved it!
usually run with family and friends but ran alone this year. I did meet and hung out with some new great people on the bus and before the race.
Did you PR?
I did not PR but I was not as well trained for it! I missed my PR by about 6 minutes! I did qualify for Boston by almost 40 minutes!
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful and very fun! Did not love the out and back but then we do get spoiled in the canyon. I did love the three miles to the finish!
Tell us about your training.
I started biking a lot this year so did not get in as many running miles as I usually do. I did get some 40 mile weeks in thiugh before. I also do a fair amount of hill training both up and down!
What advice would you give future runners?
Felt like some weight training would have been helpful to get through the last 8 miles! My quads were mush at the finish!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Pretty much spent it with family in Farmington! Did go to the Expo and ate at Rumbies along with 100 other runners!
