Bay Area Running Streakers

During my New Year’s Eve race in Fremont, I noticed that one of the racers had the word “streaker” printed on her bib. I asked her about it and then spent the next 20 minutes talking about it.

Brazen Racing has something that I think is unique. Runners that completes all the Brazen Racing races for the calendar year is named a streaker. This person gets a special number, a special t-shirt with the number, a framed case for all the medals won in the year and a special ceremony. The number the streaker is assigned is not given out again to another runner. Even if the runner only “streaks” for one year, they get to keep their number forever.

What’s the challenge?

  • Well, Brazen Racing has 27 races scheduled for 2018. That’s a little over 2 races a month. In order to streak, you have to participate in all 27 races. This would be a show stopper for me. I travel a lot and I also participate in other races like Hot Chocolate, Rock N Roll, and runDisney, to name a few. Running just Brazen races would severely limit my racing calendar to just local races, which is fine for some people, but not for me.
  • You can choose what distance you want to do. If you’re not ready for half or full marathons, that’s fine, just do the distance that meets your strengths and goals.
  • All races are trail races and the elevation gain is significant in some of the races. If you’re not willing to do hilly runs, you’ll have a hard time getting to streak.

So, what do you think? Are you a streaker in the making?

Sedona is one of those places that I’ve heard is so beautiful that I wanted to visit it one day. The red rock mountains in Sedona are just breathtaking.

When I was told of the opportunity to run it as a BibRave Pro, I jumped on the opportunity. I signed up to do the 10K. I have other BibRave Pros joining me for the marathon weekend, so I’m looking forward to meeting them and cheering them on.

For the cost of registration, you get a t-shirt, medal, and Cliff Bar products at each of the aid stations.

I love technology. I was excited to hear that the Sedona Marathon uses a free app called Race Joy. It allows you to track yourself and other runners on the course and send either custom or generic cheers. Another feature is that it alerts you when the runner you are tracking is close by, so you can get ready for to take that perfect running photo.

I’ll be using the built-in race countdown to keep track of how many days I have until the race and to plan my daily workouts.

Join me in Sedona on February 3, 2018. I’ll be wearing my bright orange BibRave Pro shirt. Make sure to say hi.
