Are You A Bloomie?

Item: City in full bloom for run Sunday/SR

More Info: The 32nd annual Lilac Bloomsday Run is Sunday, and many Bloomies will arrive in Spokane today. You’ll notice bigger crowds in shops and restaurants, particularly those serving the pasta dishes that have become a Bloomsday tradition. About 40 percent of the race participants come from out of town, according to the Lilac Bloomsday Association. The economic benefit to Spokane is huge – about $9.5 million, according to a 2004 study by Gonzaga University marketing students.

Question: Do you plan to run Bloomsday this year? When was the last time you ran Bloomsday? Or are you like me (read: never run Bloomsday and never will)?
