I ran a 1:49, which I was happy with since I had not run speed workouts for the month of April. My hip has also been bothering me and started hurting at mile 1 so I felt like I was mentally tough for this race. We ran along vineyards, the Colorado River and huge mesas! There was a huge hill around mile 4 that which was advertised as 195 ft but it sure seemed a lot longer than that! I started out slower on purpose and that seemed to work for me. I did start to get fatigued at mile 9 but held strong. There was some wind but nothing major.
