(1) How strong you get to feel while training, and (2) finishing and feeling that surge of pride and triumph. Bloomsday is awesome. (Also love the bands along the way, and the clothes in the trees, and the nuns and everything else.)

The energy you feel from all of the participants.
Families sharing the excitement and their pride in Spokane while welcoming others to the fun.
Being a part of it, the crowd, the people cheering you on, and of course the finish line!
All of it!
Big crowd phobia but I love watching it on TV!
Watching the runners as they pound down the street at the end of my block!
The excitement of crowd, and getting past Doomsday Hill
The energetic atmosphere!
The after race beer and burgers
You can walk the whole thing!
Organized chaos, logistics and tourism
When it’s over! Whew! Kills me every year!
