  2. 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!

  3. Did you PR?

    Did not PR- extreme toe pain prevented that but finished and that was good enough for me!

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Awesome, scenic (can't think of a better word), challenging, FUN!!!

  5. 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!

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Prepare better for the downhill motion . Would wear one less layer at start.

  7. 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.

    Very well organized race. Volunteers were so helpful about anything! Wished I lived closer to participate in more events.
