Happy Tuesday! Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s topic – show us your year in bling! You can write about this, or any other running related topic. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
While I love many things about running, one of the things I love most is the bling! I love race medals for a few different reasons:
1.) It’s a nice item to receive after conquering a race
2.) Medals can be unique to a particular race series or city.
3.) Medals are pretty!
Although I did’t do a ton of races this year, I’ve loved all the race medals I have received!
Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K Philly
The 15K is one of my favorite race distances and it didn’t hurt that the race was in one of my favorite cities!
Delaware Marathon Running Festival Half Marathon
I always love running in new states and this race was no different. Such an organized race!
Boston’s Run to Remember Half Marathon
This was another new to me state, but also a very special race since it’s to honor the fallen.
Surftown Half Marathon
This was probably my best half marathon of the year and I used it as a 13.1 training long run for the Chicago Marathon. This was also my 3rd new state of the year.
I’ve done the half marathon for this race twice and this was my first time doing the 5K. I remember that the weather for this race was basically perfect!
International Chicago 5K
This was my first time running this race and it was fun, crowded but fun!
Bank of America Chicago Marathon
This is probably my most special race medal of the year. I wanted to go back to Chicago and have a better experience with the marathon and I did!
Charlotte Half Marathon
My last half marathon of the year didn’t disappoint! Although the course was SUPER hilly, it was still fun and I appreciate how kind people are in the South. This was also my 4th new state of the year!
That’s it for my year in bling!
