The Detroit Marathon

Well, we did it! Ken and I successfully completed our first half marathon this morning at the Detroit Free Press International Half Marathon. My brother joined us all the way from Miami to complete his third full marathon through this magical city.

It was a cold, but absolutely beautiful day for a race through Detroit and Windsor. At 6:58 this morning, when the first gun shot went off the temperate was a brisk 36 degrees, but that didn't stop this family from loving the race! The courses are so well mapped out through the cities, taking runners along the Detroit River showing off both city skylines throughout. Within a mile and a half from the starting point, we ran over the Ambassador Bridge watching the sunrise over Windsor. The bright red sun illuminated Autumn's colored trees that lined the river. It was stunning!

We had a blast running along side of 27,000 other enthusiastic runners and cheering fans that filled the streets. Ken and I are now hooked on the running lifestyle and will be seeking our next challenge in the near future.
