BRP Summit Review

This pandemic marches on but so do we all. And that’s why this year’s BibRave Pro Summit was a welcome reprieve from the same old weekend routines. Even if it was done virtually, it was still a blast connecting with the many runners and creative producers of our group as well as the management team. Many of these individuals are people I’ve never met in real life but some of the interactions you have make it seem like you run with them every week. It truly is one of the best reasons to be a BibRave Pro.

The summit took place from March 26-28 with various Zoom events and discussions taking place. I’ve included a screenshot above just to show the wide variety of discussions and “meetings” that took place. And this doesn’t even include the DEI session, which was extremely engaging and informative or the Saturday night trivia game that had everyone on teams and conversing in breakout rooms to come up with answers. There was also a Saturday morning runners scavenger hunt supported with audio clues that guided you on your quest. Simply a fun and interactive weekend.

I would be remiss to not mention the wonderful sponsors of the BibRave Pro Summit including Knockaround Sunglasses and Science in Sports Endurance Sports Nutrition. And I have been happily wearing the specially designed for the summit Blue Light Blockers that Knockaround created for us.

Now, the next time you see me or one of my awesome BRP’s sending out the all call that BibRave is looking for new Pros to represent the brand, fill out an application and see if you make it in. There is just so much fun to be had and with a great group of people. And these are just the virtual gatherings. Wait until things get back to normal and we are together in person again…woo, look out!

Happy running everyone!

Product Review: Knockaround Fast Lanes Sport Sunglasses

Disclaimer: I received a pair of Knockaround Fast Lanes Sport Sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!

I am a frequent wearer of sunglasses on my runs and bike rides so when the opportunity came to test out the Knockaround shades, I couldn’t resist, because let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a new pair of sunglasses? And I enjoy seeing if new styles and brands (to me) are better than others that I own. I received the Fast Lanes Sport in the Clear Grey and Green Moonshine color style. First thing I noticed: how lightweight the frames felt on my face. Perfect for any activity, especially running. They also did NOT pinch the side of my head, which always an uncomfortable possibility with a new pair of sunglasses.

One of the worst feelings while running or biking is when you can feel your glasses slipping on your face. It’s horrible and annoying, and even worse when biking since it might not be an easy fix while zipping along the trails. Knockaround solves that with their rubber nose pads which basically helps the shades grip your nose. Bottom line, whether running or biking or kayaking or whatever, these sunglasses aren’t going anywhere!

How about some other awesome features from Knockaround? An option you can get is polarized mirror lenses. You also get UV400 protection in your lenses, gotta protect those eyes! Another feature that I truly love about these shades is how lightweight, as I mentioned above; now the “how” they are so lightweight: Knockaround sunglasses are made with a super light polycarbonate material. They’re like air! OK, so now what if you have really different tastes than everyone else? Maybe you don’t want to go with the flow and desire a style all your own. Well, Knockaround has you covered and then some!

So many options for you to play with in their custom shop! Make the front different than the left arm and then make the right arm different than the left! Go Crazy! Tinker with the lenses and for the final touch, check out the different colors of the “K” logo! Boom! You’ve got your very own custom Knockaround sunglasses for an amazingly affordable cost!

So, what are you waiting for? Get to the Knockaround website and order your pair or pairs now! Be sure to use code “BibRaveKnocks5” and save 20% off your entire order! But make sure you have everything you want in that cart, that discount is a one-time use per account deal! Ride or run into fall with some sweet new shades!
