This week's episode of The BibRave Podcast is here for your listening pleasure! On this episode, Tim and Julia welcome RunWESTIN Concierge and overall great guy, Chris Heuisler! Chris has been a longtime friend of BibRave, and not only has very impressive running chops (RRCA-certified running coach, almost 30 marathons en route to one in all 50 states, etc.), but his thoughtful and incisive view of the running industry, as a Run Concierge, is really why they wanted to have him on the show. What exactly is a Run Concierge? In short, Chris travels to various races throughout the country and helps runners navigate the race weekend - offering advice on everything from getting to the start, to racing strategy, to noting historic points on the course they should not miss. He’s seen many different types of runners and running trends, so it was great to get his take on the running world.
