I got the good news right before my run last night, and it definitely put some pep in my step! I had applied on a whim after they’d already announced their initial selections for the 2015 ambassadors, figuring that I probably wouldn’t hear anything, but it couldn’t hurt to try. Now I’m glad I did!
For those of you who don’t know, BibRave is a website designed specifically for race reviews. It’s intended to help you get real runners’ perspectives on real races, so you can more easily decide which races are worth traveling to, or shelling out the bucks for. When I first heard about the website, I was really excited to check it out. But then I realized that a lot of the races that happen near me (Northern Vermont), were really not reviewed or represented at all, which meant that the website wasn’t that useful for me, or people around me.
In my application to be a BibRave Pro, I mentioned that, and said that I would work hard to run and review more races in my area so that it would be better represented. I guess my pitch worked!
As a BibRave Pro, I will have lots of excellent opportunities to work with companies, testing and reviewing products, and I’ll also have the opportunity to get at least one free race entry per year. I’m very excited to help grow the Vermont/Northern New England database on BibRave, and I’m excited to meet and work with my fellow pros.
If you’re on BibRave and you’d like to connect, click here. I encourage you to check it out, especially if you’re considering a race-cation and need help deciding which race to run!
