Shoutout to RaceRaves – Race Review Site

I was deeply impressed by Race Raves just recently, and felt compelled to give them a shout-out.

The co-founder, Mike, sent me an email a while after I posted my Fargo Half Marathon review to their website.

He thanked me for joining, writing a review of the event at their website, and you could tell he read my race report since I mentioned having Deadwood coming up and he gave me a gentle reminder to review that event at their site as well.

With him doing this for me, it really reminded me of how I hope people feel when I do similar acts as SKORA, online. I basically spend my day either as “SKORA Running” or “Kyle @ SKORA” adding value to people’s lives, trying to be helpful, and hopefully showing that I genuinely care about runners.

When Kyle @ SKORA or SKORA Running comments on a blog post, a shoe review, replies to a tweet, shares an Instagram photo, etc, I really hope that the person on the other end feels that joy or satisfaction I got when Mike reached out to me!


Kyle is a running coach who works with people all over the world to help them run more consistently & be resilient to injury.

Wow, thanks so much Kyle! The pleasure is ours, and we appreciate your taking the time to join us on RaceRaves and share your perspective on the races you’ve run. It’s just as you say—we feel empowered & appreciated when someone reaches out to us to say “thank you” or “good job”, and we try to do the same whenever possible. We’re just runners (and race geeks) trying to help other runners! And we couldn’t do it without awesome, thoughtful members like you. Continued success with your running, with SKORA and with all that you do—we look forward to following along on RaceRaves and here on the blog!
