Rube's Run 5k Recap

Rube's Run is a 5k held in my town every 4th Saturday in July. It is put on by the Prospect Preservation Society (which my mother-in-law is a member of) and it benefits our small town, and it's just a fun local event that gets the whole town together!

This recap I am going to do a list of points about the race instead of my normal paragraphs (since it's just a short & small race)

Rube's Run:

  • I've done this run 3x's in the past 4 years 
  • I ran this once in H.S. 2004
  • Hilly course, 2 smaller hills in the 1st mile, 1 big hill mile 2, the largest hill in mile 3
  • My whole family joins in- Mother-in-law, husband's aunt & husband's cousin all helped with registration- 3 nieces, 1 nephew, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, husband & myself ran it

  • Eric trained for it(first time ever really preparing) and ran his second best time ever! So proud of him❤
  • It didn't really go how I wanted, though
  • After the second mile, I mentally gave up
  • I still ran a strong race & ended up getting my first overall award, 3rd female!

Overall, this race was hard, hilly, and so much fun! I love getting to spend time with my family and friends(my BRF also ran and did GREAT). If you have the opportunity to do a small, local 5k that benefits your community....DO IT.

Have you run a local 5k?

Does your whole family run?
