Running Routes, Trails And Races In Lacey Washington

Feb. 28, 2013

By Anne Larsen

We are all such creatures of habit – especially when it comes to working out! When I run on a treadmill, I always pick the same treadmill, even though there may be 50 others to choose from. If I am running outside you will typically see me pounding the pavement around downtown Olympia or close to Olympia High School, after dropping my preschooler off at school.  And of course I run close to home – so honk next time you see me around Steamboat Island!

Turn Back the Clock
is a popular run in Lacey.


Now I know I’m not alone in this “creature of habit” mentality. I see it every time I teach a spin class. Folks scurry up the stairs to the studio to lay claim to “their” bike. The look of hurt and disappointment is measurable when they see someone else on “their” bike!

Huge Turnout Expected for 37th Edition

Contact: Don Kardong, Race Director—(509) 838-1579

Spokane, WA—With a little over two months before the 37th running of the Lilac Bloomsday Run, plans are well underway for yet another big crowd to take to the streets of Spokane on the first Sunday in May. Mild winter weather seems to have encouraged early signups, as over 10,000 runners and walkers have jumped on board since online registration opened on January 1. And for those who didn’t join in the early surge, there’s still plenty of time to sign up for the popular 12-kilometer (7.46 mile) road race, which takes place on Sunday, May 5.
