Describe your race day.
the experience was great. Transportation was great. Organization was good. I loved it.
Did you PR?
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful. The out and back after the canyon is brutal after having enjoyed the downhill of the canyon. On day after I am still dreading it :), but, I thought the course was good. I think it could have used some more variety at the aid stations, perhaps adding in some pretzels or something salty every so often.
Tell us about your training.
I followed a basic training plan online and then ran Cottonwood canyon 3 times in preparation for the race.
What advice would you give future runners?
DOn't race at the start! Save some gas for miles 18-23.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I am from here so I just went home and slept :)
