Ruby Receptionists rocks the ABA Techshow 5k.

Last week we teamed up with Rocket Matter to sponsor the 2nd annual ABA Techshow 5k!

This year’s run took place on a beautiful, but cold, day. Participants were from all over the US—representing Seattle, San Francisco, Oklahoma, Cleveland, and Miami!

I was scared leading up to the run, not because of the distance, but because of how cold it was suppose to be! I layered up, thankfully the wind was pretty mild, so it wasn’t too bad. The group tried to stay together and ran at a much faster pace then I usually do, so that was a great opportunity for me to push myself. When it was over, I thought, well that really wasn’t too bad and what a great way to see a bit of the city instead of being in a hotel for so many hours straight. It was fun and I absolutely plan to run in the 3rd annual ABA Tech 5 k again next year!
