Review: Zwift

Disclaimer: I received a Zwift Foot Pod to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews.

I hate running on the dreadmill, so much so that I never call that machinery the proper name. I am afraid of ice because I know that it will to fall. So when I was presented with the opportunity to test Zwift for virtual running I thought perhaps this would be an opportunity to embrace dreadmill running. And let's be honest, running is always be better with technology enhancements (AfterShokz Trez Air, MapMyRun, Garmin,etc).

The Zwift foot pod came in the mail with instructions on how to activate. I did need a little assistance from other Bib Rave Pros as it was so small, I was worried that it would break, when I took it apart to set it up. 

My account was free and easy to set up. The app was easy to download onto my iPad. It seems as though there is a large bicycle following and application, which I am sure my spouse will want to try. 

To get the foot pod to calibrate with other technology, it is important to have the smooth side facing the top of the foot. If problems persist, one may need to take the battery out and try a reset.

There are all sorts of virtual group runs scheduled. BibRavePros participated in an Orange BibRave Virtual Run on December 18th and participants passed familiar people, while bikes also passed runners.
