Three generations of a Shoreline family completed the 2019 Lilac Bloomsday 12k marathon in Spokane on Sunday May 5, 2019.

Rich Gustafson, who is 79, ran his first marathon at age 70 - with daughter Kristi Lin - in San Diego. They have been running ever since, including every year at Bloomsday.

It was Steven Lin's second time at Bloomsday with his mother and grandfather. Steven finished the course in 0:45:52. Kristi at 1:01:18, and Rich at 1:35:06

Kristi says, "It is such a blessing that my dad can run the way he runs at 79. My Dad has been an inspiration for me. Loved running with my boys!"
