So this year, as a member of the BibRave Community, I was fortunate to be able to participate in the Virtual Summit, as the in person summit was unable to be held due to the current state of affairs.
Each Pro that was participating was given a care package! We got a shirt, a pair of Knockaround sunglasses (see how much I love them HERE), a BibRave hat, some tattoos and a pom pom!! (Though I’m told some pros received a cowbell instead of a pom pom and a a fanny pack instead of a hat)
Our coordinators had scheduled a kickoff scavenger hunt, through the app HollarHype, which was really cool, because as long as you are a member of the selected group you can send live motivational voice messages to your friends! With some technical difficulties, the pros decided to send each other random things to find as we were all on our ~5 mile runs! Kelly and I met up for a run for the first time in what seems like forever to scavenger hunt and run together! Check this link to see the scavenger hunt video we put together, and even more on her page!
First thing we did as a group was a large group zoom call, with everyone involved joined! We did two breakout sessions where we got to meet some other pros, which was really cool, because I got to have a conversation with some of the pros that ive only been able to connect with via social media and messaging!
After the breakout sessions, the first days sessions began, and there was a Live Q&A Session with co-founders Tim and Jess, where they were able to talk about the company and answer questions that the pro’s had for them! Following that, there was a TikTok tutorial with Kim, where she gave some pro tips on how to make a cool video!
The remainder of the day, leading into the next morning were left up to the pros to view some prerecorded seminars from nutritionist Steph Howe, and a mental health checkin and checkup with sports psychologist Dr. Ross!
Sunday morning I went out for. another run as the HollarHype app was primed and ready to go (we were essentially testers as its a new app) and I was tasked with finding: a landmark from my area, flowers with my knockarounds, a sign that speaks to my inner runner, and to answer a riddle “A sundial is a time piece with the least amount of moving pieces, which time piece has the most?”
After my run, I got ready for the social media best practices live zoom with Caitlin and learned about proactive hash tagging and making my stories more personal and less preachy!
Finally we all met up in zoom for a final get together, where our leaders presented awards to our friends who have been pros for 5 years! I hope I get to stick around long enough for that! Finally awards were presented to members who participated in the TikTok challenge, Nicki won the award for most improved TikTok, Riley for most creative, and I (with the help of Kelly) won the scavenger hunt TikTok for the fun way we made our hunt! (see my link before)
All in all it was such a fun weekend, and if it was this much fun virtually, I can’t even imagine how fun it will be next year in person! Thank you BibRave for allowing me to be a part of the weekend!
