30th Annual Free Press Marathon

It’s that time of year again, the 30th Annual Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Marathon. 26.2 Miles long, and passing though 2 countres, the Marathon comes over the bridge and back through the tunnel. If you’ve never gone down to see it, do it next year, it’s an intersting event to see.
