Describe your race day.
Great day! I think this year we started a a better time and it was on time! It was nice that I didn't have to sit around forever. I ran 24 weeks pregnant and I finished.
Did you PR?
I did not PR, last year I place third in my age division. But I am pregnant this year and was happy to race at all. :)
How would you describe the course?
Tell us about your training.
Being pregnant I only managed to run 3-4 times a week, gradually increasing my weekly mileage. I ran a little downhill to prepare my body. Usually I'll run 6 days/week with speed workouts and long runs on Saturday.
What advice would you give future runners?
Train with downhill, have a long run one day each week. Enjoy your training and especially the beautiful course!
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I helped volunteer with the bib pick up. I like talking to everyone getting excited about the race.
