What’s Up, Runners!    Big episode of The BibRave Podcast for you this week as we roll into coverage of the Tokyo Olympic Marathon. The women and men race next Saturday and Sunday respectively, so we brought on baller-Olympian, Jared Ward, for some insight and analysis!    As a quick refresher, Jared represented Team USA at the Rio Olympics in 2016. He absolutely crushed it on race day and finished 6th - a spectacular showing and an amazing moment in his career! Tim and Jared talk about Tokyo, what runners can expect from being at the Olympics, how the Olympics differ...

The BibRave Podcast

We welcome Dean Karnazes to The BibRave Podcast this week! In short, this man is a fountain of youth (which we discuss) and his latest book has so much to offer ALL types of runners or athletes. Dean’s newest book, A Runner’s High isn’t a book about Dean’s long-distance running exploits (of which there are MANY), nor is it a book promoting distance running. But it is about the struggle of aging as our minds and bodies come into conflict, and we talk a lot about these kinds of conflicts.

Jenny shares the highs & the lows she experienced while crewing for her husband, Scott, on his Appalachian Trail FKT back in 2015. In the book NORTH, she spoke about some experiences as an Asian-American female in a part of the country that - frankly - doesn’t see a lot of people that look like her.

Tim and Jess welcome Mike Nishi, Chief Operating Officer of Chicago Event Management to The BibRave Podcast! They put on the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (among other events)! As a Chicago native, Mike’s long history with the Chicago Marathon is fascinating (his childhood story of running it for his first time is mind-blowing). The fact that his company is now responsible for the herculean task of operating the race of more than 40,000 people gives his story even more cachet.

As a Chicago native, Mike’s long history with the Chicago Marathon is fascinating (his childhood story of running it for his first time is mind-blowing). The fact that his company is now responsible for the herculean task of operating the race of more than 40,000 people gives his story even more cachet. 

In addition to discussing all things Chicago, Marathon, and CEM, the three discuss issues that are top of mind as we enter Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May. Mike talks about what it was like being a Japanese American in Chicago from the 70s, through to the present day, and he and Jessica discuss some of their difficulties processing and reacting to recent attacks against Asian Americans in this country.
