Describe your race day.
Run was most spectacular! Have only run mostly flat races so this was a challenge. First 9 were easy and seemed to go by quickly for me-the rest not so much with extreme pain in feet. Being able to race w/my 2 daughters and daughter-in-law was amazing. One daughter and family live in SLC so came from Erie,PA to run together. We all had a FABULOUS time!
Did you PR?
Did not PR- extreme toe pain prevented that but finished and that was good enough for me!
How would you describe the course?
Awesome, scenic (can't think of a better word), challenging, FUN!!!
Tell us about your training.
Was not prepared for the downhill- would definitely run the few hills we have in Erie more often- but they are nothing like the canyon road!
What advice would you give future runners?
Prepare better for the downhill motion . Would wear one less layer at start.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Came in Thursday from Erie,PA. Visited family and a bit of sightseeing.
