IT’S MID-DECEMBER AND EARNED RUNS BIBS FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR are available. Request your set of 4 today. Remember you can use all the bibs for yourself or share with others. EARNED RUNS BIBS are ’green’; they can serve to motivate, track progress, and record results for MULTIPLE challenges and events. They are not SINGLE purpose, like most competition bibs.
The Earned Runs 2020 competition bibs are smaller in size this year. The purpose behind the change is to reduce paper usage. In addition, smaller numbers fill less of the surface area to accommodate more personal training and goal notations. Stickers will be smaller too; more will fit onto the clear areas.
Check out the HOME page to learn how bibs can serve as inspiration to challenge yourself and a means to gather others together in an activity. For solo or group use. Since 2014 I have used at least one bib. That first year I was number 1. In 2015, 2016, and 2017, 2018, and 2019 I have held numbers 1 through 4. In 2018, my bibs were so full of stickers and writing that all the space on the front sides were covered. The next year 2019, I started ordering smaller stickers so as not to need the back side of bibs for recording accomplishments and tracking progress.
Having 4 bibs all at once, up front, allows me to plan an entire year of physical activity challenges. In the past I have divided the year into quarters or seasons. Roughly, bib # 1 is used for winter, #2 for spring, #3 for summer, and #4 for fall and the year-end holidays. However, summer is the busiest outdoor season, and encroaches on spring and fall. That’s how the front bib space seems to disappear before the end of the year.
Because in 2020 nearly all the stickers will be smaller in size there shouldn’t be a problem.with too little space Earned Runs would like to offer sticker sets for each of the seasons. Up until now the stickers have been mailed along with bib sets without charge. Not a s a full set but as allowed by demand and by anticipating the upcoming events for which the requesting person might be training.
Earned Runs business activity would change dramatically if a product was offered for sale. Not sure this move forward will be taken yet. Please contact Earned Runs if you have thoughts on this subject. An initial step might be to send free sets, then design and charge for sets based on requests/response
Enjoy the holidays and your new 2020 bibs.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
