It was a big weekend. After months of training, D completed the Detroit Freepress/Flagstar Marathon
. He finished in 4 hours and 10 minutes! Yay, D! It sounded like it was pretty rough and he says he is done with marathons. I was able to see him cross the finish line which was fun until about two seconds after he crossed and I could tell he was not feeling too great. Due to the barriers there were set up I could not get to him right away. I don’t think he actually needed me but I was annoyed. We finally met up at the end of the barriers and he was able to sit down and rest. I’m pretty proud of him but I am fine if he never does this again.
I also participated in the big day by walking the half-marathon with a few friends. It was a beautiful day for a long walk. We finished in 3 hours and 16 minutes. I had a great time seeing different parts of the city that we do not normally get to see.
My walking buddies.
You can watch us at the finish line here. My group is in the video entitled “Detroit Marathon 3:14.30 – 3:39.57”. We finished at 3:37 clock time; I’m wearing a blue hat and I come across with four other women. D’s in the video entitled “Detroit Marathon 3:40.26 – 4:40.06” and he finished at 4:15 clock time. You can tell it is him because he checks his watch as soon as he crosses.
Here is the marathoner after we got home and he got a little rest in the car & the watch that was keeping his time:
In other big news this weekend, my mom and I were able to attend a fashion show at Somerset hosted by Tim Gunn of Project Runway.
Make it work, people.
