Describe your race day.
It was a beautiful day and a beautiful course. It was however marred by the lack of Porto potties. When you have 3000runners who are not allowed to go in the bushes you need a lot more than 106 johns. What I will never forget because I have never ever seen it occur before is some older guy running the course with crap streaming down his hind leg and falling out on the road. The smell was awful. Next time have more potties or fewer people!
Did you PR?
No. I ran well for my age group.
How would you describe the course?
Almost all downhill with about 1/4 mile of mild uphill and about two miles of level
Tell us about your training.
I did some long runs downhill including Mt Whitney four weeks prior. I did not do enough, and my quads and calves especially the latter were quite sore.
What advice would you give future runners?
Go to the bathroom before you run.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
We went to Zion. We came from LA area.
