Our BibRave Pros are a team of awesome run blogger who run the best races and test the latest products. We asked each of our Pros to answer a few questions about themselves, their running history and their favorite gear! If you have any comments or additional questions, let them know below!
Name: Casey Nelson
Where I live… Maple Grove, Minnesota
I’ve been a BibRave Pro for… A little over a year
My main running goal for 2018 is: I don’t have a hard set goal for 2018. If a PR opportunity presents itself, I will definitely be shooting for it, but mainly I want to stay in good running condition and have fun will all running endeavors throughout the year!
My running shoes are… Adidas Energy Boost
My favorite race distance is: Half Marathon
My pre-race routine is: English muffin with peanut butter and a cup of coffee before leaving the house (or hotel depending on where the race is). Check over my racing gear far to many times to make sure I have it all. Try to do a warm up mile or two to loosen up prior to getting in my race coral.
My favorite races are… I really like Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN, and the SeaWheeze lululemon Half Marathon, in Vancouver, BC.
My playlist consists of… I listen to audiobooks, usually featuring some sort of CIA agent like Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp, or Gray Man.
My race day gear checklist includes: BUFF Multifunctional Headwear, Jaybird Headphones, Orange Mud Hydration Pack, BibRave Tank Top, Lululemon Shorts, Compression Socks
Why I like being a BibRave Pro: The BibRave Pro running community, the chance to test the latest and greatest products, and the chance to try new races and provide feedback to others on those races and products!
My favorite episode of The BibRave Podcast is: Episode 32 – Julia’s Marathon Goal – REVEALED. I really liked it because it talked with Kate from Grandmas Marathon, which is one of my favorite races!!
Post-race I always eat… everything!!! Beyond the obvious, I typically go for something salty like chips, along with fruit and a bagel or granola bar.
