Detroit Free Press Marathon 2010

It turned out to be an awesome day for running in downtown Detroit on Sunday! Unlike last year I knew my way around Detroit well enough to park in the Compuware structure and not having to catch a shuttle buss to Canada took a lot of stress off of the morning.  It was good to have so many friends be able to run in the half marathon too. My Garmin watch distance was quite a bit off for the day but I’m just happy that I was able to stay around the same time as my Martian time back in April.

Martian Marathon 2010

On Saturday I took part in half of the Martian Marathon, totaling 13.1 miles through the streets of Dearborn. The weather was a crisp 38 degrees at the start and gradually got nicer as the race drew on. This wasn’t the longest I’ve ran before but it was definitely the toughest run as not only were there people to run around but there were many hills to dredge up which takes a lot out of you! Overall it was a great experience and I had lots of fun cheering on the running sensation also known as Sam.
