My name is Gisgie. It’s pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we’ve met, I’m glad you’re here. I hope to become your BRF (best running friend). Or at least the person you come to when your family’s and friends’ eyes glaze over when you start talking about running. I’m also a Bib Rave ambassador.

They’re soft, convertible and made in Michigan. What’s not to love?   When I got the Turtle Gloves’ Turtle-Flip midweight winter soft mittens to try because I’m a BibRave Pro, I wasn’t sure if they’d be warm enough for the Michigan tundra. In the end, I added hand warmers and ended up needing the mittens’ convertible features during my runs.
