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: Jeannine Avelino
Where I live… Vancouver, BC, Canada
I’ve been a BibRave Pro for… Just over a year.
My main running goal for 2018 is: Successfully complete 2 trail Half Marathons and hopefully PB the Chicago Marathon.
My running shoes are… Adidas Ultra Boost X or Ultra Boost for road and Salomon Sense Ride for trail.
My favorite race distance is: The 15K gives you a nice mix of endurance and speed, but I do like all distances.
My pre-race routine is: Make espresso and oatmeal with berries. Usually my gear is prepped the night before so I can just enjoy my breakfast and try not to freak out 😉.
My playlist consists of… Green Day, Blink 182, AC/DC, Fitz and the Tantrums, Foo Fighters, Daft Punk, Korn, Kraftwerk, Lady Gaga, No Doubt, The Offspring, Ramones, and Paul Kalkbrenner.
My race day gear checklist includes: Salomon vest, BUFF® Headwear, Adidas Ultra Boost, BOCO hat, BibRave gear, and Nuun Hydration!
Why I like being a BibRave Pro – I love connecting with the community and having the opportunity to try out different types of products. I have some great BRP friends and I love when people reach out to me to ask me for running advice.
My favorite episode of The BibRave Podcast is: The Berlin Marathon episode. I was there too and it was nice to be able to relate to some of Jessica’s experiences.
Post-race I always eat… Some kind of brunch or whatever is close by the finish line!
