It’s no secret, I love my race medals. I won’t say it’s the ENTIRE reason I race (I genuinely love to run and compete, against myself and others), but I really really enjoy that finishers medal at a finish line. And I love to display and collect them. Reminders of my accomplishments, and how far I’ve come as a runner. Laugh if you want, some people collect purses or salt and pepper shakers (I swear, I’ve seen that before)…I collect race medals.
So as a medal lover and self-proclaimed ambassador of all things race-bling…I feel it is my job to bring some light to this important issue at hand. And that is the proper care and display of our prized finishers medals.
After posting the contest to win an Allied Running Medal Hanger, my inbox was flooded with pictures of your current medal displays. And let me say, kids, you should be ashamed of yourselves! These poor, poor race medals. If I could put this blog to a sappy sad Sarah McLachlan song like those sad ASPCA commercials that I can’t watch without crying, I would . OK, I’m exaggerating slightly, but still. You get the idea. Check these out…names withheld to protect the guilty parties involved.
We have them hung in the closet
