Good day overall and ended up Age Group 3rd
There were both a 5k and a Half Marathon. My two daughters and my son-in-law also participated in the event. This is a partiularly hilly course that starts at Old Tucson Studios and follows the road through Tucson Mountain Park. The course took us out toward the Desert Museum and around Brown Mountain, so the out and back were somewhat different as you turned to make the loop around the mountain. It also meant that when you were looking for some relief from the hills that you thought would come at about 9 miles in, didn't materialize until mile 12. I have been suffering from a knee injury for the last several weeks and was having to modify my training so I wasn't sure how well this would go. It was definitely not my fastest effort, but given the course and the hills, I was ok with the results. The daughter that ran the Half with me also did well and we had a good time.
