The first time I ran a race I worried a lot about what to wear:
I'd Operated Safety Pins Before. I Didn't Think Pinning My Bib was Going to be a Thing.
My poorly pinned race bib irritated me for 13.1 miles! It was the first half marathon where I RAN the entire race. That bib was a big distraction. It flapped. It wrinkled. It moved around. It caught the wind like a parachute on a downhill slope. It made noise on every single step.
What's the Big Deal if a Race Bib Makes Noise?
A noisy bib is like a dripping faucet — a constant irritant. During a race, you don't want to think about anything except putting one foot in front of the other. Little things are annoying. (Especially in mile 10 to 13!)
By the end of the race, my bib was a mess. The safety pins pulled the bib until each corner was permanently wedged in the circle end of the pin. When I took the bib off, there were pin pricks on my shirt. The corners tore. The bib was crinkled.
BibBoards Beat Pins and Saved My Shirts
After using #BibBoards, I'm done with safety pins on race bibs. Here's why:
That's Why I'll Keep Using BibBoards

Friendly Reminder: Don't Wait to Sign Up for the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon & Relay
It Always Sells Out!
I posted this on Twitter the other day, but thought I'd drop it here as a reminder.
If you're thinking about runnning the First Watch Sarasota Half or Relay on March 18, sign up now. This race sells out every year. And believe me — you want to run this one.
The medal is huge. The shirts are fun. The race course is scenic. After you cross the finish line there's a post race jam on the lawn at Van Wezel Performing Arts Center. You get cold beer, good food, and beautiful views of Sarasota Bay.

This year I'm a #BibRavePro. That means along with tons of race discount codes, I get to share info on running gear with you. I'll be test-driving everything from drinks to tanks to techie tools. Then, I'll report back here.
The first thing I want to tell you about is the explosion of orange that arrived in my mailbox this week. Take a peek at the photos below and you'll see what I mean!
I'm Falling in Love with my #RunInRabbit Tank
Everyone has a favorite brand or two for running stuff. Ask any runner, and I guarantee they'll tell you all about it!
Certain gear makes us happy. Maybe it's the color and cut. Or, it's the material — or, how we feel using it. Shoes, clothes, nutrition and gear has to be comfortable, practical and perform well. If it does all of that, it's a candidate for runner love.
Well, my Rabbit racer tank is lovable. It's a lightweight wicking material with embossed rabbits all over it! Beyond cute, it stretches but keeps it's shape. Plus, my tank in this #BibRavePro orange means traffic will see me coming.
I plan on wearing it a lot. Since I live in Florida, tanks are important here!
Take a Look at the Under Armour® Running Hoodie, Custom Brilliant Reflective Decal, BocoGear Cap, and Orange Nuun Hydration.
I'll be back with more info on the cool stuff shown below as I put them to use in training and races. If you have any questions, let me know. You can find me on Instagram and Twitter, or shoot me an email from here.
