The most exciting thing about this week is being in Washington and racing the Bloomsday 12k road race in Spokane. This was a great week in preparation for an even longer race next week - the USA 25k Championships.
The race itself is amazing. The beautiful course rolls around Spokane, and gives you a feeling that spring is definitely in the air, as the wintery white spectators are lined along the course in shorts and T-shirts. It's a happy feeling, even though it's tough to catch your breath over the rolling hills. Another exciting part of this race, was the fact that many Americans come out to vive for the prize money being offered to both American's and Washington residence. I got to meet up with a couple old buddies and meet some new running competitors. All-in-all it was a good week, as I prepare to peak for the 25k Championships in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
