It's COLD at the start! Dress in layers and plan to donate your layers as you strip them off along the route. You get to be warm and help others too! That's a big win/win! Also, do NOT do anything different or new on race day (eating/nutrition, insoles, sports bra,etc.), that makes for a gamble that almost never pays off! Also, if you're traveling to Utah, don't waste the trip...see the sights! It's a gorgeous state!!!
