DETROIT (AP) -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm says her five-mile Labor Day run across the Mackinac Bridge could be a metaphor for Michigan's past, present and future.
The state's outgoing Democratic leader was among 300 runners who led several thousand walkers Monday across the span linking the Upper and Lower peninsulas.
Granholm says the run started under clouds, with rain during the crossing, and a burst of sunshine at the finish line.
In her eighth year as governor, Granholm acknowledges the state has been through a "decade from hell" but says she sees hope for its future with a more diverse economy and higher-trained work force.
Granholm says President Barack Obama's proposed $50 billion infrastructure program should aid Michigan's recovery.
