HELLO AUSTIN!!

BibRave has once again proven why it’s one of the best running communities around!! Here is what I am thinking must have been going through Tim and Jessica’s mind, the co-founders of BibRave, while they were planning out this weekend:

Lets get 20 of the BibRave Pros from around the country together and send them to Austin Texas to attend the premier trade show for running speciality retailers and brands, The Running Event. While we are there, lets have them attend an amazing welcome/reception party put on by Zwift, attend a VIP running party put on by Brooks, set up the biggest BibRave group run to date, and get each of them the Ultimate Swag bag filled with running gear. But instead of just giving them the gear, lets allow them to talk to the brands they got the gear from so they can learn all about their products and all the new things they are coming out with!!

I have heard a lot of people say that your speed is made in the Winter for your races in the Spring. I am planning on following that advice by putting in a winter of solid workouts (both indoors on the treadmill, and outdoors either in the elements or at the turf track in a sports dome by my house). In order for me to see if I made solid strides this Winter, I need a race to have a baseline to compare against when Spring roles around…hence, the Lifetime Turkey Day 5k on Thanksgiving Day (November 22, 2018 in Minneapolis Minnesota).
