Describe your race day.
Very well organized race and such a beautiful location, with the ability to visit/sight see!
Did you PR?
No, but it was a very enjoyable. My PR was at Mt. Lemmon and I was super happy with that.
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
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!
What advice would you give future runners?
Same as above, see #5
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).
