I make no apologies that I run for the bling. Don’t give me diamonds or jewelry, all I need is a kick-ass medal and you’ll see a very happy woman 🙂 I’ve had the opportunity to travel a little more this year and was lucky enough to run races in 6 different states. From 5ks all the way up to my first marathon, this was an awesome year in bling.
I love race medals for various reason, but the most important reason is because each medal tells a story. I can look at a medal and automatically tell you how I was feeling during that race, my least and favorite part of the race, things I saw on the course, etc. 2016 was a definitely a year of ups and downs due to a few injuries, but I’m still very happy with my medal haul this year.
Usually it’s hard for me to pick out a favorite medal but not this year! Br far my favorite medal this year is my New York City Marathon medal, duh!
I’m not sure how many races I’ll do in 2017, but I’m looking forward to adding more bling to my collection!
Do you have a favorite race or medal from this year?
