Preparing for the Lilac Bloomsday Run
I am confident that spring is on the way which means it is time to get ready for one of Spokane’s favorite May events - Bloomsday. This year the Bloomsday event is Sunday May 4 and starts at 9 AM. Bloomsday is for folks of all ages and is open to all runners, walkers, wheelchairs, assisted wheelchairs and strollers. At the first race on May 1, 1977, over a thousand runners participated in the inaugural Bloomsday Run, which was billed "Run With the Stars" in posters announcing the event. Last year over 51,000 people registered – maybe this year could be the year for you to participate. This will be the first year my wife and I will walk the event with our twin grandchildren.  I must admit, we are not close to ready so my wife went on line and found a training clinic sponsored by Providence and Group Health.  I thought you all might like to know a little more about this free clinic. According to the web-site, each clinic will provide expert information, a warm up and a training course starting at one mile and adding an additional mile each week.  The clinic starts March 15 at 8:30 AM at the Spokane Falls Community College Gym. 
To register for the clinic, check out “Train for Bloomsday” at the Providence Washington website.
Even if you are not going to attend Bloomsday this is a great opportunity to get out, walk and enjoy our beautiful spring weather.
We hope to see you there.
