Describe your race day.
Coming from Dallas, TX I didn't know what to expect. So, the day before the race I drove up into the race area and my heart started racing with uncertainty...lol
I had a scary but exciting feeling at the same time is the best way to describe.
Did you PR?
Yes!! This was my 2nd time running a marathon and I PR'd my 37 minutes! I was very proud.
How would you describe the course?
Challenging, very steep, painful 18-22.
Tell us about your training.
If you don't live near steep inclines/declines then you are SOL!
Seriously, I would recommend to incorporate more strength training then you normally would do because you are going to need it!
What advice would you give future runners?
If you can afford to have a few training runs on the course so that you can gauge what you are about to embark upon.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Beer. Beer. Beer.
