2005 Detroit Marathon

Well I finished my crazy line up of marathons. This one got a little tough at the end. Went out a bit too fast, paid for it at the end. Pretty cool course. We ran from the US over to Canada. Did a few miles, then back to the US in the tunnel. It is the only marathon that spans two countries (that is what they say) and also the only one which does a mile under water.

Funny thing happened during the race. While people were exiting the US side of the tunnel, an alarm went off and the border fed guys freaked out and stopped the race. Seems someone set off the radioactive alarm (probably from drinking some barium.) They never did find the person who set it off. Click here for the news story.
