  2. Describe your race day.

    Very well organized race and such a beautiful location, with the ability to visit/sight see!

  3. Did you PR?

    No, but it was a very enjoyable. My PR was at Mt. Lemmon and I was super happy with that.

  4. How would you describe the course?

    Gradual down hill, lovely area and injury free, which is the best part. I was able to still sight see/hike the next day

  5. Tell us about your training.

    I was able to run and up a local hill weekly, about 5-6 miles, so that helped with the downhill grade portion. I recommend this, I felt prepared and no recovery issues!

  6. What advice would you give future runners?

    Same as above, see #5

  7. What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?

    Hiked to 3 Falls and other areas prior to the race. The day after the race, went to Canon Beach, Meary Lighthouse and Haystack Rock (2 hour drive each way).

    I Love the Revel Race Series! The locale's selected keep me interested in signing up. Already sighed up for the Hawaii race!
