Easy pre-race process; it was nice to watch the sun rise over Montana as we were bussed up the mountain. For out-of-towners like me, the small uphills were definitely tough, but they were a good way to work other muscles after flying down the hills. I can appreciate helping myself to the water stations in the wilderness, but some people didn’t shut off the spout, so I hope there was water leftover! I loved that I was alone for large stretches of the race, which made it feel like a relaxing training run, but I was also glad I didn’t have to worry about bears eating me. Even though I was not acclimated to Montana altitudes yet, I did fairly well, and I enjoyed the variations in scenery that I was so looking forward to. One thing I wish happened: a cold beer for every finisher. I didn’t stick around for the full marathon finish party, so I can’t comment on that, but things dispersed rather quickly for the half finishers. Thoroughly happy to have participated in this and a great way to get to know Montana for the first time as a Jersey girl!
