You all know that I love to run and that I love to race. I really love to write race reviews too. In fact, half of the time when I decide to pick up an extra race that we didn't plan on it's because I know it will give me some interesting blog material. 

Thanks to my survey, I know that a lot of you like to read race racaps so it's a win-win! Oh, and I love bling. But who doesn't??

Over the last year or so I've been fortunate enough to get to travel a little and participate in some awesome races as well. So far I've ran a race in 4 different states and by the end of April, I'll have added 2 more new states to my list. The Hubbo and I have an unofficial goal of running a half or a full in all 50 States. What better way to see the country? 

In a recent blog post I slipped in a little teaser at the bottom that said I had an announcement coming soon and it's time to let the Ginger out of the bag!

                                               I'm going pro y'all!

No, I'm not entering the professional racing realm to run along Shalane Flanagan, Kara Goucher, and Lauren Fleshman. I'm not even close to being fast enough to compete with them. I wish!

I'm excited to announce that I am now a BibRavePro! A couple months ago I first introduced you all to Bibrave in the third part of my Favorite Website Series. Well now I am part of a fun group of ambassadors who all share my love for running, racing, and race reviews.

Why Did You Decide to be a BibRavePro?

When I applied to be BibRaveRro I was beyond excited because it was literally a perfect fit for me and I was hoping it would be a nice fit for them as well! I've been approached by other companies asking me to be an ambassador before but I passed on those opportunities because it didn't feel right. 

I feel like I was already doing most of the things a BibRavePro will do, like running races, sharing race recaps, and talking to other runners about my running adventures, so it was just a nice bonus to get to join this group! 

Also - I don't feel like I have to "sell out" and I can still  be myself and blog about topics that I want to blog about. #IDoWhatIWant 

What is a BibRavePro?

It's someone who likes to run. Check!
Likes to travel (a little) to run races. Check!
Likes to talk about running. Check!
Likes to write race reviews. Check, Check, Check!

What does this mean for those who read RunGingerRunBlog?

1. You'll be seeing me wearing this shirt in some pics. (Gingers look good in orange right? Oh and I heard that Orange is the new black or something?) 
2. You'll get to keep reading about my running and racing adventures. (Because I think I'm hilarious and ridiculous and think you all enjoy that.) 
3. You'll get to keep reading my race recaps.
4. I'll get to share discount codes for races and running gear with you when they are available.

Oh awesome! You are up near my family then! I'm from Kansas. I'm doing the Hospital Hill Run this June in KC, MO

Cool! I can't wait to hear about that one and see the medals! A few of my running buddies thought about doing that one, but it might be too hot then to run a half for us. Good luck!

Congrats! Well deserved! To answer your question, I read recaps mostly to find out about the course terrain & elevation, and how good a job the organizers do with fluids, etc.

Thanks John! I'm really excited! I'll be sure to post about those things in my race recaps too.

Running and participating in the race is always good not only for your health, but also it is a great adventure and a lot of fun when you participate and win the title. A lot of people love to win, but so many times they won't be able to be succeeded. These ideas are so good and your writing skills related to the races you participate in are so great and more attractive.
