This week’s topic is Favorite Race Medals
Most of my medals come from half marathons. And I love them ALL! I mean they mean that I actually ran 13.1 miles!!!
I have won a lot of age group awards so I have medals from those races and a few from some shorter distances.
It was hard to choose but I’d say that these are my favorites:
- Sarasota Music Half Marathon 2016
Of course, this is from my most recent half marathon. I just loved this race course.
- Naples Daily News Half Marathon 2011
A medal from my first ever half marathon…what more can I say?
- First Watch Half Marathon 2013
This is one of the few medals that I have that is not made of metal – it is made out of wood.
- RNR Brooklyn Half Marathon 2015
This is the arch in Prospect Park where the race began. This was the first time I had been back to Brooklyn since I was 5 years old. I used to live near there when I was little.
I’ll never forgot running 13.1 miles in a monsoon rainstorm in order to get this medal.
- Adirondack Distance Run 2014
This was from a bucket list 10 miler that I ran along Lake George. The race ends at the marina where we keep our boat.
- Freihofer Run for Women 2012
They don’t normally give medals for this 5k but in 2012 you were able to purchase one. I only did because I got a discounted registration so it didn’t cost me much. I didn’t know at the time that I would break my ankle and that this would be my first run. So this medal is very meaningful to me.
Happy Running! Where did you get your favorite medal? Why is it your favorite?
