Bloomsday is an annual 12K run that takes place in Spokane, WA every year. Tiffany, her sister Nicole, the boys and I ran in it this year. I lived in Eastern Washington for 10 years and never took the time to participate in this race. What a blast to run with over 50,000 runners!

The morning started for me at 5:30 AM, when my son Grady came into our room. I asked him what he was doing up so early and he said, “the race!” Like it was Christmas morning, or something. After a couple more hours of sleep, we were in downtown Spokane with thousands of others. Ready to run. Grady and Graham joined the fun in a stroller, with the help of Tiffany and Nicole. I ran with a co-worker of mine, but with 50,000 people, it was more like a struggle. Shoulder to shoulder, I felt people buzzing around me for most of the run. I haven’t ran that long for months and man, will I be sore tomorrow.

It feels so good to be back in Washington, enjoying the outdoors and feeling apart of our new home in Spokane.
