Marathon Bracelet

Hello Blog World! Happy Monday! I have a feeling it’s going to be a good week! A cold one, with more potential snow, but a good one!

This lovely Monday morning I wanted to share with you a gift I got from one of my best friends this past weekend that I thought you might enjoy. 

When I came down to Virginia Friday night, Fiancé and I spent the night at my friend Michelle’s apartment. We hadn’t been able to see each other since the holidays so we were excited to spend some time together.

(Michelle & I circa my Engagement Party)

Aside from spending time together and seeing each other again after a few months of not, we were able to finally exchange Christmas gifts this weekend – which was very exciting. One of the coolest things Michelle got me, I had to share with you all!

It’s a marathon bracelet!

The bracelet is custom engraved sterling silver bracelet made for a marathon runner (like me!), it has the city and dates of marathons engraved one one side and the marathon distance  and time engraved on the other side

On the other side of the circle charms are my marathon times as well as the 26.2 distance.

The Chicago Marathon will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my first but I am so proud of my New York time! I love having them both on my wrist!

This is an amazing gift – Thank you so much Michelle! She purchased it from Etsy, which is one of my favorite online websites! I love finding unique and affordable items on Etsy!

I know she put a great deal of thought into designing it and was very excited to present to you. I appreciated the opportunity to create such a special gift between friends.
