I cannot remember how, but I came across BibRave at the end of 2017. BibRave Pros are a community of runners that review & promote running products and races online (through Instagram, Twitter [#bibchat], Blogging, Facebook) etc.
I noticed that they were accepting applications for new BibRave Pros, and to be honest I was fairly doubtful of being selected. I felt I could do fairly well at reviewing and promoting online, but I was just an average runner, and not exactly what one imagines as regular “ambassador” material. My Instagram profile did not contain crazy miles, weekly PRs, six-packs, exotic locations and fancy photography.
However, BibRave do not run your average ambassador program. They are more interested in people like you and me. People who can give honest reviews and remain authentic in everything they post. People who are just passionate about running and want to share that passion with everyone.
I was already an avid blogger and instagrammer, regularly sharing my views on races and chronicling my new-found love of running. BibRave seemed like it would be a natural extension of what I was doing anyway.
So I applied and to my surprise I was accepted! I started my BibRave journey at the start of 2018 and was welcomed into a rich community of similar minded people. I’ve tested and reviewed many products over the last couple of years — many of the products I could not do without now!
Then there’s the races! There are so many opportunities to run races all over the country (and further afield). My racing schedule doubled in 2018 and 2019. I could have easily have taken advantage of many more racing opportunities, but I like being married waaaay more. 🙂
As I enter into a third year with BibRave, I’m really looking forward to my first BibRave Pro Summit in March. It will be so fun to meet more of my fellow BibRave Pros in real life!
You could join me! BibRave are accepting new Pro applications until Nov 17th, 2019. If any of this sounds appealing to you, go check out BibRave.com or #askabibravepro — we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
