Amazing boston qual day and beat time needed by15 min. First time for boston so very emotional finish line cry. Mile 21 aid station was amazing. Massaging calves and rubbing Ben gay! Thanks!!!
Yes by 13 minutes
Perfect day made it easy. No wind and sun stayed low enough until canyon exit
I lost 16 lbs as I stopped eating most carbs and all liquor for 4.5 months. I was not fun to be around as all training and no liquor makes Brian a dull boy. Didn't miss a workout, never got sick and blew away a boston attempt in 2002 by 14 minutes
Stop all alcohol for 4 months. Easy way to get lean
Relaxed prior , cried with family after.
Absolutely beautiful! Everything went smoothly too! I really appreciate all the support offered along the course, and all the port a potties too. The best part of the race is definitely the scenery!! The race started exactly on time, so I commend REVEL for that!
Yep! 2 minutes faster from my previous PR. Not a big difference, but huge for me because I didn't train as hard for this one as my previous PR.
FAST! I scenery is beautiful and helps take your mind off the actual running. I'm not used to running on that steep of a grade, but I was able to manage it just fine. I didn't notice any difference with elevation.
I slacked on training this time around.. so I don't have any advice to give about training for this one.
Layers, layers, layers! It's really cold at the top and during the first 2 to 3 miles. I like to wear lots of layers and strip them off as I go along.
Nothing, unfortunately. I'm already from the area and didn't stick around the race afterward. One fun thing to do after the race is to go to Octoberfest and celebrate your success!
Great race! I'd like to see more food such as chocolate milk and fruit at the finish line. I ran the half and was able to get some but the rest of my family ran the full marathon and there wasn't much of anything left, especially chocolate milk. Try to spread it out more or buy more! Otherwise I love the canyon and the race! I'll do it every year!
Yes! Not sure by how much but I did!
Sadly I didn't get as long of runs in but I did well today! My longest run was 5-6 miles before this half marathon.
Traveled from Pleasant Grove, stayed in midvale with my sister.
I ran 16 miles ending at 2 am race day as a sweeper for the Wasatch 100. I think I left my legs back somewhere near Spruces Campground
Great. I prefer trails.
Do LOTS of "road" downhill in training.
Helped a fellow Wasatch 100 Conrad into mile 47 aid at midnight. She was cramping and couldn't get anything to stay in her stomach.
Great race guys but I think I will stick to the trails. First time doing this run, but find road running numbing to my head. Greatm, great course for marathoners though.
Fantastic! It was one of the most organized and fun race events I have attended. I will definitely be back!
Nope - but I just signed up two days ago with no training whatsoever. Next year will be different....!
Fun, gorgeous, fast, favorite one in Utah.
Didn't train at all - nope. Nada. I don't recommend that strategy.
To do this race!! So fun. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff and volunteers. Amazing pacers!
Hung out afterwards. Super fun atmosphere with all the people, food, and band. Good job!
It was very well organizedThe course was good but I did not care for the last 3 miles
yes I didCut more that 4 mins off my timeNo BQ but was not trying for that
scenery amazing beautifulElevation was rough I am from IndianaI did not care for the end of the course
trained wellDiet was good
We did several hikes
It was amazing. Everyone seamed very coordinated; the volunteers and people working the event. There wasn't any confusion about where to go. The whole attmosphere was positive, which made for an enjoyable day.
No. But I finished within the time frame I set for myself.
The scenery was breath taking. The grade and elevation were not that bad. Because there was so much to look at my mind wasn't focused on the road.
I ran 3 days a week totaling 20- 30 miles. I strength trained by going to Pure Barre 3 days a week and rested 1 day a week. I used my fitness pal to keep track of my nutrition. I have to actually make sure I eat enough when I run because it decreases my appetite. When I did long runs I would use GU. I need to figure out my portions for the GU because if I eat too much it upsets my stomache.
Definitely find some sort of training plan and go at a pace that's right for you. Everyone runs on a different level. It's good to push yourself, but not to the point of injury.
I live in Herriman Utah, so I went home and took a nap!
First half. Beautiful scenery. Perfect weather. Very organized. Aid stations awesome. No complaints! Great day!
First race but I was very happy with my results.
Parts of it were pretty steep but very beautiful. We are from TX so it was hard to train for the hills, but actually didn't botger me too much. Pretty sore but I expected that.
Just did a lot of walking /running. Started early, took it easy 3 days before race. Ate a light but filling meal the night before. Again, it was my first one so I'm just learning.
We drove. Probably fly next time. Check out all the cool gadgets at the EXPO. I got some awesome things. Don't wear, eat or adjust your normal routine. 'If it ain't broke , don't fix it'.
We drove from TX. We have kids and friends here, so we hung out with them.
Loved it. Everything was so organized!
Yes, 1 minute. No-
Scenic, comfortable elevation.
Running up and down mountain trails. I would've starTed training earlier for a better pace. Start training early and practice on inclines and declines!
Bring something to keep you warm before start, wear good shoes, use body glide, pace yourself, stop for water when you need to, and definitely train!
We're from Utah! Revel was amazing!
