On Saturday, September 13th, I took part in the 1st Annual Suncrest Mountain Race 5K. The race was held in Draper not to far from where we live. It was a beautiful morning as you can tell from the photos (not a cloud in the sky). The race was a killer! It started out downhill (which was great), but as we all know, what goes down must go up and that's exactly what happened! The next 2 miles was all uphill! Whew! The last part of the race finally was all downhill and I took advantage of that and really kicked it in to make up for time lost dying on the way up! My time was pretty good, but I am not sure how I placed overall.
UPDATE!! The race results were just posted and I am shocked and happy to report that I placed 1st in my age group!
