Describe your race day.
Pretty scenic run through a challenging downhill course.
Did you PR?
How would you describe the course?
Serene, beautiful scenery until the last 5 miles of the course. Downhill grade was very challenging with some very steep grades.
Last 5 miles on Union street were anticlimactic and somewhat disappointing . Did not enjoy running in the middle of stop and go traffic.
Tell us about your training.
Didn't really train for 18 miles of downhill. Went faster than planned but burned out at the end
What advice would you give future runners?
Train downhill. Bring super warm clothes to where while waiting for race to start at Guardsmans Pass. It was very cold. Wish I brought a cap.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Visited Temple Square and did light hiking.
