MILWAUKEE - Mayor Tom Barrett was released from Froedtert Hospital Tuesday morning after a two-night stay due to dehydration and over-exertion. 

The mayor was hospitalized Sunday night after completing a 20 kilometer organized run at the Pettit National Ice Center.

Barrett had been celebrating his 60th birthday with the run. The mayor does run regularly, but Sunday's run was much longer than his usual jog.

A spokesperson said doctors kept him in the hospital as a precautionary measure.
