Perfect morning for a run

For several hours this morning, the Shore Run captured control of the neighborhood, as more than 2,000 runners and walkers participated in the annual event which benefits immunotherapy research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. This was the 33rd running, and it happened on what was certainly one of the nicest mornings possible for a run up Lake Washington Boulevard and into the Park.

Afterwards there was music, and there were refreshments, awards, prizes (many donated by Madison Park merchants) and plenty of time to enjoy a pleasant spring morning in the Park.
