Our BibRave Pros are a team of awesome run bloggers 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: Gina Hanzel
Where I live… Minnesota
I’ve been a BibRave Pro for… this is my 3rd year!
My running shoes are… Brooks Glycerin.
My favorite race distance is… the half marathon!
My running goals for 2018 are… to continue to work on my speed in the half marathon, to get a sub 1:50 half marathon, and to continue to help others with their health and fitness goals!
My favorite races are… half marathons!
My playlist includes… I don’t listen to music. I like the quiet!
My pre-race routine is… to try to stay as calm as I can! I love the distraction of meeting up with fellow runners to shake the nerves off. And I’m usually in line for the bathrooms at least 3 times before I start! Ha ha!
My race day gear checklist includes… my Garmin, SPIBelt, and BibRave hat!
Why I like being a BibRave Pro… the community, the awesome race opportunities, and the gear!
My favorite episode of The BibRave Podcast is…definitely the episodes with Bart Yasso! He is such a cool human and he is active on social media and comments on so many runners’ photos! I’ll never forget when he commented on one of mine! I think it’s so cool that he is a “real” human and cares so deeply for his sport and for others.
Post-race… is all about socializing and celebrating for me! No matter the outcome of the race I always will take my post-race jumping photo and hang with friends! And sometimes… the post-race calls for an ice cold beer, too!
