scrub-run, Scrub RunJoin us for a fun family event along beautiful Lake Minnewaska. Dogs and strollers are welcome! The race will not be timed again this year so that 1) the price is reduced for you and 2) more funds can go to American Cancer Society. Medals will be awarded to the overall winners (male and female). All pre-registered participants will receive a T-shirt. A First Place medal will also be awarded to the male and female in various age categories.

fa6da82774ca2ca32426eb2827e5a0d9Your first steps include:
1) Own a very good pair of running shoes.
2) Stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day, or more if it’s hot outside or you’re exerting yourself.

Other good ideas:
1) Run with a buddy, even if you don’t run at the same pace. You’ll keep each other accountable.
2) Wear clothes that make you feel good.
3) Don’t forget to warm-up before the run and stretch your muscles after the run.
