I keep all my medals in my bedroom at my parent's house, I don't sleep there often, but when i do, i love walking in and seeing all my bling.
I have wood paneling all the way around my room so I hang them on push pins.
When we get thunderstorms they rattle against the wall and wake me up, lol.
If I took them all down, I would be able to put them all back in the exact same spot.
These are my favorite medals. 3 medals x 5 years = still want more :-)
It's fun to see how a medal improves over the years. The 2005 medal was small and no color, the 2010 medal is much fancier!
This is my least favorite. I have very tiny hands (my engagement ring is 3.25) so this medal may look normal-sized in my hand, but I assure you, it's the size of a QUARTER!!! It's sooooo tiny. Not to be picky here, but I don't like the red, white and blue ribbon on medals. :-P
It's nice to get different things sometimes too. Here is my cowbell from my 50k and my sash from Disney.
I don't pick a race based on the medal, but it is definitely a nice perk. Whenever people ask me if I collect anything, I never know what to say. I want to say I collect running medals, but not sure if that makes sense. Ryan and I always take a smoochy picture with our medals after a race. :-)
What is YOUR favorite medal? Thanks, Marlene, good idea.
