I wrote a story for Competitor.com and had the chance to ask some elite runners how they handle a DNF or DNS. It was really interesting to hear what's involved in bouncing back and how they get back to the starting line.
I love racing. Even if it's just a community 5K, I love getting out there and standing at the starting line with bouncy, nervous runners. I'm a mid-pack runner, but I'm always out there to push myself on the course and have a good time.
So that's why I'm so stoked to be a BibRave Pro. It means I'll be racing and giving all the grit and glam that goes along in a race.
If you're curious what that looks like, check out BibRave.com.
And yes, I'm an Aggie and yes, I'll be rocking some bright orange gear at races, but I think it'll be OK.
What races are on your calendar?
My last race was in 2015. I’ve run pretty consistently since then, but in 2015 I was dealing with what I didn’t know was a vestibular disorder. It made running hard.
I was too worried to try a race. I knew my time would be slow. I wasn’t sure if I would even be able to finish 3.1 miles with a dizzy head.
