Describe your race day.
I loved the hour and a half for the bussing this year. However, the start of run up the canyon and back down was an absolute nightmare! It ruined my pace and I spent the rest of the race trying to make up for it. The course was so congested and it was really hard to get into a comfortable pace while dodging people.
Did you PR?
No!! I missed my goal time by 1 minute.
How would you describe the course?
The course was beautiful but very congested for 3 or 4 miles. I think you should consider using the whole road and capping entries.
Tell us about your training.
My training was all over the board, but I ran another half two weeks earlier and that seemed to help my stamina.
What advice would you give future runners?
Train for the steep downhill.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We barely made packet pick up so we only had time to shop at Scheels. We are from Idaho.
