Mackinac Crossing Sets Record

By  | 

The sky was a perfect blue today as thousands enjoyed the annual Labor Day walk across the Mackinac Bridge.

Governor Jennifer Granholm has broken her own record, set last year. She jogged across the bridge in 40 minutes, 52 seconds, faster than any other governor in the 48-year-old ritual.

By custom, the governor leads the walk. When Granholm inherited the job in 2003, she added a twist by jogging most of the way across the bridge which links Michigan's two peninsulas.
