What is 40bibs?
The bib is a runner’s version of the superhero’s shield. It gives the runner power. It signifies someone strong and confident, even when the person underneath the shield doesn’t feel that way. In 2017, I set out to don 40 shields; 40 bibs in 40 races, to celebrate strength and confidence in the face of turning 40. And I will also support 40 other racers with superhero shields of their own. When the year was out, I’d completed 49 races in addition to supporting 40 runners in both races, as well as in the 2018 Run the Year challenge.
While 2017 is behind us, the spirit of 40 bibs lives on. I hope you will join me on this journey.
