Governor Granholm was joined by about 42,000 people making the annual Labor Day trek across the Mackinac Bridge. Granholm and her husband, Dan Mulhern, were among 400 runners crossing the five-mile bridge linking Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas.

Granholm has run across every year since 2003 except in 2009, when she walked with Canadian relatives. Leading the bridge walk has been a tradition for Michigan governors since 1958, a precedent set by G. Mennen “Soapy” Williams shortly after the bridge opened.

The weather for Monday morning’s walk was overcast with some early drizzle.
