Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! Today we’re talking about race bling!
This week’s topic – What do you do with your race medals?
I’ll be the first to admit that I enjoy receiving race medals. Does that mean I need a medal for every race I run? Absolutely not. But I usually prefer to receive race medals for any distance of 10 miles and up. For me, each race medal tells a story or holds a memory.
For instance, whenever I have doubt about anything – something at work, training for a race, etc – I take a quick glimpse at my marathon medals and I’m reminded that I can absolutely do hard things! The pain that you feel during the last few miles of a marathon is something you don’t forget easily, lol. So if I can make it through that, multiple times, I can make it through anything.
I use the standard method to display my race medals – a medal hanger. I currently have 3 hangers (2 pictured below). I have a fourth one that I received for Christmas that I still need to put on the wall (whoops).
One thing I still want to do is a shadowbox for my marathon medals. I have the custom marathon maps from RunInk, so I just need to buy the case to make my own shadowbox. I think I can purchase the items from Michael’s so I will do that once the outside world opens back up.
Tell me – What do you do with your race medals?
