One of the main reasons for this trip, was to take part in the Cherry Trot Run~
a 4 mile race through the GreenBluff area just outside of Spokane.
It was a beautiful run over rolling hills.
If you managed to work your way out of the throng of the other 2000 runners,
you could take in the scenery surrounding you~ cherry orchards and other fruit farms...(which I am not familiar with....living in the prairies of Alberta). I thought it was beautiful!
It was definitely a "fun run".....not to be taken too seriously.
This is what led all us racers through the 4 miles....it took off before us after a gun was fired.
We followed a minute behind.
I never DID catch up to it though...so it must have been chuggin'!
(or maybe I just wasn't all that quick:)
Being Canadian - we had to show our Home and Native Land roots.
Mom bought us Canadian "gear" before we left.
