Snow Canyon Half Marathon 1:26.46
5/176 AG, 14/717 F, 69/1912 OA... PR :D
Miles 1-3: Plan was to take the first 2 miles at a set hr zone then progress from there. Josse and I didn't make it up to the front in time so we had to do a bit of weaving in and out of people during mile 1. Noticed a head wind through this section but everything felt comfortable.
Miles 4-8: Beautiful section of the course through Snow Canyon. There was a younger kid named Spencer who was running the tangents very well so I stuck with him and we ended up running together until the end. Took a gel at mile 7. After 7 is when the rollers start and I was still feeling very good all the way up to the end of mile 9.
Miles 9-13.1: Running through the Entrada neighborhood was harder than I expected it to be. I would pull us up the inclines and Spencer would pull us fast down the descends. Working with him helped a lot. Saw my awesome dad at mile 9 and I remember mile 11 being the toughest for me so when I noticed the pace start to drop here I took gel #2.
I love that this race finishes on a track. The track always gets me fired up and I was able to out kick 2 girls in the last 50 meters. Huge shout out to Rachelle with a 1:17 finish ->she is on fire!!
