bloomsday 2008

This sunday I participated in a local 12k run called Bloomsday.  If you are from around here, you know what it is.  Everyone knows.  I have spent many years being one of the few people not wearing the official "finisher" shirt that everyone receives at the end of the race.  So this year, since I have been getting into the best shape of my life I decided that I wanted to run in this race.

My BFF shaney and I rode the bus into the big city of Spokane and waited among 50,000 other people for the race to start.  As the gun went off we pushed our way through the slow moving crowd until it started to spread out.  And then we were jogging, and sometimes running.  We finished in 1 hour and 51 minutes!  I was totally shocked.  I was hoping to finish in 2 hours and 30 minutes.
