So, yesterday … whadda day for me. As you may know, I was a bit M.I.A. around these here parts yesterday because I was up EARLY to run the 2012 Detroit International Half Marathon. My day started at around 4AM and it didn’t really end until well past midnight Eastern time. The Detroit Run was pretty much one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of and I’m just really proud of myself for taking up the challenge. After the race, I rested up a bit before Sarah and I made our way to one of Michigan’s amazing cider mills for an afternoon of Fall fun. Then, I hopped a plane back to LA and here I am again. Monday. Click below to check out some photos from my very bizzy but fun day yesterday and see what I got up to.
I could go on and on about the race but I shant … I’ll just let you know that I loved all 13.1 miles of the race … from Detroit to Windsor, Canada (over the Detroit River on the Ambassador Bridge) and back again (under the Detroit River thru the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel). I got to see some of my fave Detroit landmarks up close and personal … on foot.
I wanted my finish time to be as close to 2 hours as possible and I ended up finishing at 2:12 … not too shabby, a new personal record. I have to give so much love to Sarah and Mark for waking up with me in the wee hours of the morning to support me every step of the way. My day was fun, yes, but largely due to their support and love.
After the race (and after a great nap), Sarah and I made our way to the Plymouth Orchards for some cider mill fun:
Sarah and I had a blast. Our time at the mill was short but very sweet. I couldn’t get all sad because I’ll be back in Detroit in a few weeks to hang again :D
My weekend was fun but hectic. Next weekend will be just as hectic. I have another couple of races coming up Saturday and Sunday … but I’ll worry about those later. It’s Monday, a new work week … let’s do this!
