I'm very happy that I'm back as a BibRave Pro in 2020. As a pro, I get to test and review running gear and races. The best part is sharing results and discount codes with you!
Check my race discounts page before you register for your next race. There are lots of discount codes that can save you money. Look for gear discounts on my brand discounts page. You'll find new releases and old favorites there.
As a BibRave Pro, I get to test new running gear. It starts right away with my new 2020 Pro swag. Take a look below to see the brand new BibRave logo and gear you may want to try for yourself.
Women's 1/4-Zip Long Sleeve
Thumbholes for the win on this long sleeve! It's 100% polyester. It's wicks away moisture. I love it for layering or wearing alone. The color is a deep orange that really makes the new BibRave logo pop.
Buff Ultra-Light Pack Run Cap
I'm fascinated by my new Buff Pack Run Cap. At first glance, I wondered if it could hold all my hair in place while I ran. It can.
This ultra light cap is comfy and convenient. It only weighs one ounce. And the cap can roll up and fit in your pocket. It's a good solution for traveling. It's going look good after traveling. The brim is a nice size that kept the sun out of my eyes.
There's a sweatband, and the polyester material wicks away moisture. It's super stretchy material, so I'm guessing it will work on most heads. Bonus points for UPF 50 protection!
I tested it on a humid day last week. It stayed in place and kept the sweat out of my eyes. There's an adjustable elastic cord in the back. Use it to tighten or loosen the fit.
It's a Fast Pack Run Hat!
Look how easy it is to collapse the hat and put it in a pocket! This won't take up any extra room on the road or in your suitcase. (Photo: This Old Runner)
Great graphics all the way around the Pack Run Hat.
2020 Racing Tank
This BibRave tank by Augusta Sportswear is 100% polyester. I think it's going to be comfy for training runs and races. I like the two-tone design. This tank looks fast!
BOCO Trucker Hat
lI was eyeing the new custom BOCO GEAR runner trucker at the St. Pete Run Fest. So, I was thrilled when my new BibRave Pro trucker had the same design! It's a lower profile and more fitted than the traditional trucker.
The front logo is embroidered, and the back of the hat looks awesome with the repeating logo on the mesh material. Hand wash to keep it looking sharp.
Another Buff Favorite: Multifunctional Headwear
I doubt I'll ever have enough Buffs. I use them as headbands, wristbands, and neckbands. They soak up the sweat and protect me from the sun. They're great as a face mask when I'm mowing the lawn or blowing off the sidewalk. There's no seam, so it's comfortable any way you wear it.
This new Buff is the best one yet. It stretches every way and then snaps back into shape. It's 95% recycled and engineered with REPREVE performance microfiber. It wicks away moisture and controls odor. AND IT HAS UPF 50+ sun protection! Win-win-win-win!

Orange is the New Fast!
Thanks to everyone at BibRave for the awesome gear for this new year! I can't wait to train and race in it. Here's to hoping orange really is the new fast for me in 2020.
Ways to Wear a Buff® CoolNet UV Multifunction Headband
We all know I stink at taking selfies, but I tried my best so you can see some options. BTW, I wear my headband for both running and casual wear.
I like to wear my Buff® around my neck (as an ice necklace when it's hot). It keeps the sun off my neck and easily converts to a headband if needed. (Video: ThisOldRunner)
Buff Puts the Fun Back in Multi-Functional
Buff® headbands and headwear come in plenty of colors and patterns. You can find options to match all your running gear. Choose the headband like I did, or get the longer CoolNet UV Multifunctional Headwear. Look below for more ways to wear a Buff®.

If you're looking for a way to ease the heat during your Summer training, give this ice necklace a try. My new #BibRave BUFF® reminded me of one of my favorite hot weather hacks for runners.
A BUFF® is a knitted tube of technical fabric. There are lots of ways to wear a BUFF® to make it your own. Today, I'm using the kerchief style to create an ice necklace.
There's a video version of this advice on my Instagram account.
This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)
