2020 Bling

Since it’s Tuesday, I’m joining the link-up organized by Zenaida and Kim (Kooky Runner)

The Topic for today is: Show us your year in bling? 

2020 was not a big year for “real” races so obviously my collection of bling was not large as in a normal year. Still, I did collect a few medals & swag.

In Person Races

Virtual Races

Virtual Challenges

Age Group Awards

Which ones were my favorite(s)?

The medals from the in-person races.  Those are actually the ones where I feel that I “earned” the bling.

The others were just from runs.  Those medals don’t have much meaning for me (though some are very nice.) But I did appreciate all of the swag that I received from many of the virtual events (esp. the gaiters).

I’m also linking up here:

Happy Running! Did you get a lot of bling this year?  Which was your favorite? Please share.

  1. Oh wow, you had six in-person races this year, Darlene! Cool.
    I only had four, and they were all packed in the first three months this year.

    Congrats on the AG wins! Were the Malta 5K and 10K races virtual, too?

    • Haha. I think I was the only one
      The only ones that count are the real races. I won’t even hang them lol

      But I do like all the shirts and gaiters from the virtuals. At least they are useful

  2. You still scored some nice swag!! My bling pic on my blog looks a lot more impressive than the year felt…but every medal came with a fun memory or a great lesson learned. And we all persevered and have (almost) made it to 2021!!!


    • Yes. Mine does too.

      But I only really feel that I earned the in-person medals.

      Hopefully 2021 will have some more in person-events and 2022 some REAL races.


  3. Lots of bling for a year with very few live races! I tried so hard not to collect bling from virtual races except for the half marathons I ran. I wouldn’t have minded a medal from that 19 miler as well!

  4. Wow, you managed to get in a lot of real life runs this year! I only managed one and didn’t get into the virtual thing until later in the year. I agree, I don’t consider them “racing,” and I’m always amazed when people actually set PRs when they do them. For me, a virtual half marathon is just a long run. Still hard though so I’ll take that bling!
