May 15, 2020

On this week’s episode of The BibRave Podcast, Tim & Jess talk to Tony Yamanaka, Vice President of Operations for Event Southwest, a boutique event production company. They then chat about the running industry and why runners run. Basically, prepare to nerd out.

Tony graduated from the University of Edinburgh where he wrote a dissertation about “Long-Distance Running Races: The Use of Experiences as Self-Concept Constructs.” The trio dissects what that actually means - specifically why runners run - and his approach to his research. A lot of the discussion centers around this idea of experience, and since we are all in lockdown our concept of experience is changing all the time. They also share some insider tips on how to get into the industry and tales of some international travels.
