Describe your race day.
Amazing! This was my first time running the 1/2. Everything was so well planned for and all of your volunteers were awesome! I loved my run through the canyon. Another runner called it spirirual. I agree.
Did you PR?
I actually did set a pr. I ran a 1/2 last October in California. It took me 3 hours 35 minutes. Today's race was 2 hours 42 minutes. I'm paying for the downhill now but I'm thrilled about my pr.
How would you describe the course?
It's all downhill. The mountain treess are just starting to change to fall colors. The river running next to the road is soothing. Watching the sun rise.
Tell us about your training.
I've had a busy spring and summer moving to a new home and entertaining my two young boys. My husband and I tag team to get runs in. Sadly I wasn't as prepared as I wanted to be. Perhaps I wouldn't be so sore if I would have trained better.
What advice would you give future runners?
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I traveled from Mona, utah. Although I grew up in cottonwood heights. This race was a bucket list.
