For the first time ever, Bloomsday did not make you pay for the pictures their cameras took along the course! You can download them all for FREE! I downloaded the best ones and posted them here.
Here's Jeremy pushing through those last 2 dreadful miles.
Here I am, but not sure where this is exactly.
Laura making her way to the finish.
Jeremy was the only one who had a good "Finish Line" photo. You can see him there in the knee brace.
Me sprinting down the last little hill to the finish line.
Here are Brian and Karen making their way up Doomsday.
I think Laura's face here perfectly describes how much she hates Bloomsday.
Elizabeth found this great sparkly sweater and decided to wear it to the park today. She didn't believe me when I told her it was too hot to wear a sweater. We got to the park and after about 10 minutes, she was complaining about how hot she was. It was a short trip to the park! Perhaps we will try again in October with the sweater.
Jeremy is talented in many areas. Another talent is sewing! My favorite pair of jeans wore holes through the knees so he converted them into stylish shorts!
Elizabeth watched and seemed to be interested. Jeremy will have to teach her to sew.
Jeremy can't sit down without getting attacked. It's funny.
I also have no idea why Elizabeth wants to wear a coat when it's 85. Yesterday, she said she was cold and wanted to wear her HUGE winter coat. I think the changing weather is confusing her.
We headed up to Spokane for Bloomsday again this year. Jeremy and I had both registered a few months ago. In February Jeremy hurt his knee at work. Then, Jeremy hurt his back badly doing yardwork. He couldn't run for a long time so had decided to just not run. Then, we got the email that said he could run in the yellow group this year. He hadn't expected that! He didn't want to waste his chance to be in yellow group so even though he hadn't run for over a month, he decided to do Bloomsday. We got to wait together at the start. That was neat!
Here we are at the start in yellow group. No beach balls here! I also only saw one tutu and it was on a guy.
Here is looking toward the start line.
Here is looking back. Poor Laura is back there somewhere in good old green group. We wish she could escape that group, but after what she did this year, they will probably never let her leave! People were bouncing around those beach balls that always bonk you on the head if you don…
