If you are new to the blog, you might not know my extreme love for race medals and bibs. There might even be a race or two in my running resume that I entered just to get a medal and a bib! I love them!
They serve as my motivation for crossing the finish line and are a reminder of the work I have put into my sport. I also love that the medals/bibs (along with my race recaps on the blog) serve as a memory of all the amazing races I have been able to compete in.
I have been recently putting all my accomplishments on my race board, but in the past year I have added a lot to my beloved board, and it was getting a little crowded.I knew I had to find a new way to display my hardware.
Enter Allied Steel.
(Side Note: If you want to see where this medal hanger is located, check out my apartment tour! )
Allied Steel makes these amazing running medal hangers. They were the answer to my prayers when I didn’t know how to showcase my medals by providing me with this amazing display !
There are a bunch of different designs to choose from on the Allied Steel site. My favorite design is the cityscape with the girl running past it. This was important to me because I have been lucky enough to run a variety of races in a few different cities and states. I hope to only add to that list in the future!
I was also able to add a little custom design to the hanger by having “And Her Little Dog Too” etched into the skyline. My blog has played such an important role in my running because I started running when I started the blog, just a few short years ago. When I think of running, I think of my blog! I have documented all my races, most of my training and all my running experiences on the blog, to me they are one in the same.
Sometimes I like to think to myself “If I never started this blog, would I have ever been able to complete
one two marathons in a month this year?”
I don’t know where I would be in terms of being a runner if I didn’t have this blog. I have learned so much from reading other running blogs and I have received so much motivation and inspiration from my readers. It has truly been an amazing experience!
I can’t even believe that since May 2009, I have collected all these medals! I really have only been running seriously since then, so I am very proud of all that I have been able to accomplish since then.
There are 10 medals for lots of different races hanging on the wall, but we can’t forget about the little necklace which is from my first half marathon, which was a very proud moment for me! Got to have that up there!
I seriously love displaying my medals this way. It’s so pretty to have them all hanging side by side, with all the different colors of the ribbons.
This is an amazing gift for runners everywhere! Want to win one for yourself or that runner on your Christmas list?
