Race Board Update

My race board is getting a little crowded! Remember what is used to look like? I have totally filled it up since November! I realized this morning that I didn’t post an update on it after my newest addition was added! I love how I keep all of my medals and bibs on this board, but I am really interested to know how other people keep their race stuff.

What do you do with your bibs and medals?

Do you keep them? Do you throw the bibs away? Do you showcase them somehow? I want to know what the rest of the world does with their racing accomplishments!

Back to my board – Can you spot my NYC Half medals and bibs from this year AND from last year? Hint: They look the same! I actually kind of wish they changed the look up, just to make my race board more colorful.

I like this years medal so much better than last years. The gold color is so much prettier! Don’t you think?

I also realize I never showed you the pretty roses that fiancé got me for my NYC Half PR. He brought them with him when he picked me up from 30th Street Station. Isn’t he the sweetest!? He was sick all last weekend and couldn’t make it up for the race. I know he was sad that he wasn’t able to see me run.

So pretty -  I love red roses. I think flowers should be given after ever race! It should be mandatory, don’t you think?

Today I am off to do some work for my new Solixir gig and then I have tentative plans to frolick around the city! It’s a little chilly out today in Philadelphia, but it’s still really beautiful out! I think it got chilly out because I started to pack up my winter wardrobe the other day! It’s so big and takes up so much room in my closet! I want it gone, but I knew the second I did that it would cool down! Ha!

Do you have fun plans for this weekend?

    I am new to your blog, but I love it! Very insightful! I plan to put all my race bibs in a scrapbook with any pics from that particular race along with the finish time. Btw, I just ran my first half marathon in January at Disney World. Much, much slower than you though!! Congrats on your recent race!

    I have all of my race bibs pinned to each other so tha they make a string of bibs. I have them hung from the ceiling going down to the floor. I'm actually on my 2nd row of bibs lol. My dad used to do this so thats why I do it. I just bought a shadow box to display the princess half marathon medal, bib & pictures b/c I think its super special and needs to be showcased :)

    Hi! My name is Stephanie and I live outside of Chicago. I found and started following your blog after the Princess Half Marathon. Like Maggie, I just did my first half and loved it. I too, am trying to figure out what to do with all of the fun racing memories. I did a half-marathon relay today with some friends and my brother that was really fun! (Des Plaines River Half Marathon and Relay)I bought a super on sale coat hook from Anthropologie to hang my Princess medal from… may break down and put together a huge 12X12 scrapbook for all of the pics., bibs, and stats. Thanks for writing your blog… and congrats on your winning photo!

    flowers should come with any race pr = AGREED! I'm in desperate need of some flowers, and I'm always trying for a PR. Just seems like a good idea. ;)

    I love your race board! I'm going to copy yours…but what to do when it's all filled up? Race board, volume2?

    I think a nice shadow box from Michael's is a good way to display medals, check it out! Your fiance is the best to buy you flowers, such a beautiful color, when he was sick all weekend. He is always thinking of you, that's true love!
