I have a medal holder I got on Etsy last year but it has never made it onto the wall....but it will! It has to because I just ordered a new one since this one is full. My Diva medal is so big it is on the door knob with my Spartan bag.
I need a new one for two reasons:
1. I found a website that hosts virtual runs to raise money for Team in Training and you get super cute bling!!!
2. I have decided to got for the second level of half fanatics next fall after getting the first level in the spring. And usually a half marathon has a finisher medal.
Level 1 = 3 Half Marathon finishes in 3 months.
Level 2 = 8-11 Half Marathon Finishes in 12 months.
In September there is a race in the same town my "Sista from anotha mista", Gabby just moved to. It is the week before the Rock & Roll Half Marathon Philadelphia so I was going back and forth
Well I decided I will only do Philly and really the reason was that the race in Maryland did not have a finisher medal!! After I run 13.1 miles I want a medal LMAO! It may seem silly but it is the little things in life.
Do you think a medal is a deciding factor? What about swag for smaller races? Where do you keep your bling?
