Describe your race day.
Beautiful fast fall race.
Did you PR?
I am old and slow-but I was able to take 20 minutes off my previous 14 halfs.
How would you describe the course?
Beautiful, fast, fun, easy to navigate. Appreciated the aid stations, water, cones and police to guide us.
Tell us about your training.
Year round-then 3 month graduated walks leading up to the race.
I do 3 halfs a year-so it is continuous.
I do 2 Sprint Triathlons so that adds bike and swim and a women's bike ride, plus core training.Do it!
It is pretty much daily.
What fun things did you do in the area before or after the race?
Drove the course, Colossal Cave tour, carb load at Trattoria Pina (excellent), San Xavier Mission and Casa Grande on the way home to California.
