Describe your race day.
Great day, great venue and great volunteers. I was on pace for a PR until my calf muscle pulled near mile 20 (ARGH).
Did you PR?
How would you describe the course?
Much steeper than anticipated. But it was very beautiful. Incredible course and I can't wait to run it again.
Tell us about your training.
I needed a little steeper downhill training. What I did was not similar enough to the grade of many sections of the course.
What advice would you give future runners?
Wear calf sleeves and bring something to sit on at the start of the marathon. Not much space available.
Also, hit the port-a-potties earlier than normal, the lines were very long at the start of the race.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Nothing. I only traveled from Lehi.
