All pictures courtesy of the fantastic Stephanie who ran the race with me at my pace, kept me company, kept me going, made me laugh, pointed out historical sights, told me stories, showed me the funny signs (Top two signs: That's Not Clapping, It's Your Thighs Cheering You On and If Trump Can Run So Can You!), and whom I confused the hell out of with my Galloway running. Thank you from the bottom of my heart my friend!
And now the recap.
Steph told me her plan was to keep me company and take pictures for me and she did such a wonderful job. When she sent me all of these pictures I swear to you I never would have thought they were taken with an iPhone while running. That woman has talent!
Here are some lovely pictures of the neighborhoods.

One of my favorite pictures from the race, going over the River Raisin ("It's the River Raisin not the Raisin River. It's a French thing"-Stephanie).

For the last bit, Stephanie ran ahead so she could get finish line photos of me. Seriously, just the best running partner!
Did I get a PR? No. Was I even close? No. Did I run a good race? Not really, I slowed waaaay down for the second half. Did I have fun? ABSOLUTELY! Would I do it again? Sure thing, it was a lovely course, well run, and pretty. And hopefully next year my running won't be as sidelined by LIFE and I'll have a better time.
