Describe your race day.
Excellent.. Everything went smoothly. Course is awesome, my all-time favorite. Weather was perfect. Volunteers were helpful and enthusiastic. Great medals.. Post race activities were top notch: massage, excellent band, pancakes,pizza,cherry coke, and smooth bag pickup.
Did you PR?
I PR'd in the half marathon. I also PR'd in the 5k and 10k en route. I qualified for Boston here last year, but wanted to try the half this year.
How would you describe the course?
The best. I love to run downhill.
Tell us about your training.
In Kansas, we obviously don't have this type of course, I just do the same training as I do for flat or small hill half marathons.
What advice would you give future runners?
It's a little cold waiting for the race to start, so dress warmly. I ran in Hoka Clifton 4. They were perfect for this course.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
I traveled from Kansas for the race. Due to work commitments and flight schedule I didn't arrive until Friday evening. Last year, I enjoyed a visit to the Morman campus.
