In the Spring of 2016, I submitted an application to become a BibRave Pro (ambassador). After waiting a couple of weeks, I received a very nice email stating I did not meet their social media requirements. Not to be discouraged, I spent the last year working on my social media accounts in hopes of joining the team.
Fast forward a year later…I had forgotten to reapply to become a BibRave.
Erin, the BibRave Community Manager, contacted me and wanted to know if I was still interested in being a BibRave Pro.
Not wasting any time, I quickly replied back, “YES, I am!”
After covering a couple of administrative items, I was a member of the BibRave team.
So, you are probably asking yourself, “What is a BibRave Pro?”
A BibRave Pro is active, enthusiastic, and socially-savvy run blogger who helps spread the word about BibRave and BibRave-partnered races and brands.
BibRave connects the global running community into a single platform for race reviews – bibrave.com. Outside of the race reviews, BibRave also hosts what is known as #BibChat on Twitter every Tuesday at 9PM EST. This provides an opportunity to connect with other runners outside of your local area.

Within the first month, I was given two free marathon entries: Route 66 in Tulsa, Oklahoma & Sedona, Arizona Marathon. I will provide updates to these races and my training as they come closer to reality.
