I’m fighting off a cold (thanks, coworker), so for today, you get photos of one of the things I did this weekend – hung up my newest bling.
In one of the Facebook groups I occasionally visit, there has been a debate about race medals. Should big races have big medals? Apparently, people were disappointed about the size of the Chicago Marathon medals.
While I love my race bling, I don’t race for the medals (though I admit, one of the reasons I want to do the 5 year Space Coast series is for the medals honoring each of the shuttles – but that might be more about my space obsession and less about the fact that they’re race medals). But I do like the medals for what they represent.
My running medals are a bit overwhelming. But right now, my triathlon medals are my favorite. Even the boring ones. Starting triathlon was a big leap for me and I’ve had so much fun racing over the past few years.
I know a lot of people couldn’t care less about medals. Others choose their races for the quality of the medals. I’m somewhere in between. But I admit, I’m going to have to do something about these displays. The running medals are getting a bit overwhelming! And I don’t even race that much!
